Sabudana Ladoos are a Indian sweet made from tapioca pearls , powdered sugar , ghee and nuts . These ladoos are specially made during fasting festivals .
Well I am not a person who does any fasting , but definitely love to try different kinds of Ladoos . If you guys remember I had posted a series of ladoos for one of the BM , I had made those for the Ganpati festival in our complex . Since I made them for five days , I had two in my drafts .
My friends in the complex had gone crazy over these ladoos , specially this one . They could not believe ladoos could be made with Sabudana . They are not aware that my Blogging friends can make ladoos out of anything ! Seriously I have been drooling over some of the ladoos our BM friends have posted in the previous editions . I have a bookmarked list , but perhaps that list will get completed on the next Ganpati !
For now you enjoy these ladoos which are not melt in the mouth but are slightly on the crunchier side . If you wish to make them melt in the mouth kinds you just need to add some more ghee or milk .
This my Day 1 post under the theme Make One Type of Indian Sweet .
Sabudana ke Ladoo
1 cup Sabudana / tapioca pearls
1 cup sugar , powdered
1/4 tsp cardamom powder
2 tbsp ghee
2 tbsp cashews,raisins and almonds , chopped
Extra ghee / milk for binding
Dry toast sabudana on low flame, stirring continuously until they turn slightly brownish.
It will take 15 -20 minutes and the Sabudana should be crunchy .
Let cool .
Heat 2 tbsp. ghee in a small pan and add cashews, almonds and raisins , toast and keep them aside .
Grind the toasted sabudana to a fine powder. This step can be done in batches. Grind the mixture and sieve it if it appears coarse.
Collect the fine powder and again grind the coarse powder left in the sieve and repeat the process until you are left with finely ground sabudana.
Combine the ground sabudana, sugar powder, ground cardamom and the toasted cashews, almonds and raisins along with the ghee in which they were toasted Add extra melted ghee / milk to the mixture until you are able to hold it together.
Shape lemon sized balls out of the mixture by rolling between your palms.
Store them in an airtight container.
