Peanut Ladoo

Peanut ladoo is one of the easiest snacks to make. It contains only 2 ingredients: peanut and jaggery. Jaggery is a good source of Iron and Calcium. Peanuts are good source of protein. This healthy dish can be prepared in less than 15 minutes.

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.
