Lovely green gram laddos, the first ever post-vacation recipe in my real food blogging life of UAE. When I am back after holidays to my own kitchen, it is like I have to actually search for the groceries and ensure the presence of each ingredient to make anything. Generally it is possible that I lack the most common item or totally miss it off because the kitchen is partially set.
Don’t puzzle yourself asking about the previous post that is black sesame seeds laddo, which I prepared long back before I left to India. It was not the first one that is made after the holidays. That recipe was in my drafts which I posted immediately as I return.
When I plan to post one more sweet delicacy as Janmashtami special, I was totally clueless as what to make?? But the green grams lying in my pantry led to this healthy green gram laddo with jaggery. It has only few ingredients which I had in stock.
Green gram laddo can be either jaggery based or sugar based. Sugar based version you can find here. In this recipe jaggery syrup is prepared but you don’t have to check the consistency, as jaggery starts boiling you can use the same for laddo. The laddo mix has roasted and powdered green gram, bites of roasted peanuts and cashews. As you combine the syrup with laddo mix and roll in to balls, offering to Lord Krishna is ready as easy as you think.
