Serving: Makes 1 dozen ladoos
1. Roasted Peanuts - 1 cup
2. Jaggery grated - 1/3 cup
1. Peanuts can be roasted on stovetop or in microwave. For stovetop method, take a heavy bottom pan and heat on medium flame. Add the peanuts and keep stirring until you see dark brown spots. This method takes around 15-20 minutes. Roasting in microwave oven is quick and easy. The steps are mentioned in my other post: Roasting Peanuts in Microwave.
2. Add roasted peanuts(I prefer to add skin as well) and grated jaggery in a blender and make a fine powder.
2. Take a handful of powder and shape into balls. The moisture content in jaggery and oil in peanuts is sufficient to make ladoo and there is no need to add additional water/milk/ghee.
These ladoos stay fresh for a week when stored in a airtight container under normal temperature.
