laddoo with wheat flour....

This was the most favourite dish of my children, when they used to go to the hostel, they always wanted to take it with them. so I learnt making it
Besan...3 cups
Desi ghee..3/4 cup
Sugar..2 cups(grind it finely), this is the general choice, I put 1 and 1/2 cup, as i like a little less.
Cardamom powder.1 tbsp.
2 tbsp..cashewnuts
2 tbsp almonds
for garnishing.....
4 big cardamom-grind them
2 tbsp. coconut powder.
Take a saucepan, and put besan and Ghee and roast on medium fire, stirring all the time.
When it is done it leaves the ghee., then add chopped almond and cashew nuts.
While you are roasting..its sort of solid mass, but when its starts becoming a little liquid and give an aroma.
Now add cardamom powder and take it off the heat.
let it cool for a 3-4 minutes.
now add sugar and make balls. While making the balls take some stuff and rub it between two hands, then round them.
spread cardamom and coconut powder in a plate.
Put the ball on this and keep it aside.
Laddoo are eaten more in the winter, as it gives heat to the body and very nourishing also.
The same laddoo can be made with wheat flour also. For a better taste..take 2cups of flour and 1 cup semolina.
Quantity of ghee can be increased or reduced as u like.
Initially put a little ghee , then add slowly till the flour is not dry anymore.
You can keep it for one month.

If only you had posted this sooner!!! Never heard of wheat flour laddoos before......would they be healthier than besan?

:), In the north they are quite popu;ar, some people cant digest besan easily, and even taste is different, try once, I like them more, if making with wheat flour u may take this proportion..2 cups flour and 1 cup semolina, I forgot in the recipe, they are even better:)

This is a very healthy breakfast for me and I like it also, almost no oil is used and it has lots of vegetables. and not much cooking even.
1cup broken wheat
250 gm cabbage..julienned
1small capsicum..julienned
1 carrot grated
1 tsp. oil 1tsp. mustard seeds.
1/2 tsp. turmeric
1/2 tsp salt or as you like it
1/2 lemon
2 tbsp. roasted peanuts.
Green chilli(optional)
coriander leaves..finely chopped for garnishing.
Dry roast the broken wheat, till it is golden.
In a pan put oil, and when it is hot add mustard seeds.
When they start spluttering add all the vegetables.
saute them for 5-8 minutes, till they get shiny or loose water.
Keep them aside.
Now cook the broken wheat with 2 cup water, turmeric and salt, slow the fire and cook till all the water is absorbed.
Mix the vegetables in this.
Now while serving spread some peanuts and then sprinkle lemon. TIPS:.....even you can roast the wheat in microwave also, you will have to stir it once or twice. Some people add tomatoes also, but I dontbecau…


This was the staple diet in winters in my childhood. Actually we started making this only from GangaDusshehra and stopped it from Shivraatri. My mind found this logic in this ritual..its considered heat, so once the winter is gone..its not good to eat ..may be.
Ingredients: 1cup Uradcchilka (black urad) 1 and half cup rice. 4 cup water. 1tsp. turmeric 1+1/2 tsp. salt or to taste. green chutney, curd papad Radish..cut into long pieces and sprinkle salt and lemon juice on them. Desi ghee Put daal, rice, water, turmeric and salt together in a cooker and put it on the gas. After one whistle slow the the fire. keep it for 3 minutes and switch off. let it cool for 5 minutes. Now open it , and serve it hot with dollops of ghee and accompaniments. I love it with radish and curd. My dad always used to like it after a little shallow frying...for this take a fry pan, put some ghee and add khichdi, and shallow fry it, till its a little crisp. Its like Indian fast food...cooks in a jiffy and healthy to…

Roast And Grill..Green Park vada palani

I bought the groupon coupon for this and found that this was my best deal.The restaurant is on the roof top with a pool..and ambiance is very good....infact I loved sitting poolside..looking over the lighted Forum Mall...much better than sitting inside.

Then the service was excellent, they were polite and very attentive to our needs, before we finished even one started, another came on the table. In the mocktails we ordered kiwi cooler and it was perfect.Then in the starters they had corn cob,paneer tikka,onion capsicam with herbs , potato with cream, soya patties etc, all grilled or roasted. He asked us whether we wanted any repeat of the starters, but it wasnt possible for us, we were much that we picked a little from the main food.There we had 4.5 vegetables and daal, veg, pulao, curd rice, and naan..baiagan ka  salan, shahi paneer and daal were just yummy..Only thing I miss in chennai is that rarely they have dahi bhalla in menu..but here they compensated with starters.I…
