Wheat Flour and Oats Ladoo are healthy ladoos . They are enriched with edible gum and coarsely powdered nuts and melon seeds .
The Ladoos are full of nutrition , as these are enriched with loads of dry fruits and edible gum . The oats lend a wonderful flavour to these Ladoos . The flour is roasted on very slow flame till aromatic , this is a step where you require lots of patience . If you increase the flame , the flour tends to burn , so roast it very patiently .
While one is roasting the flour , the oats and nuts can be roasted in the oven on two different racks . This way you save on time .Edible gum is optional , and needs to be shallow fried . Once all these preps are done , it’s just mixing and binding and you have a power packed energy ball ! You can enjoy it anytime .
These Ladoos are apt for any festival , I made big sized Ladoos and packed them individually in decorated earthen bowls . They make such a wonderful gift for the guest who are coming in . The best is they have a good shelf life and are ideal as travel food too .
