Peanut Ladoo!!!!

Hi guys!!!!

Everytime I get in the kitchen to prepare a quick snack a little voice in my head keeps reminding me 'Keep it healthy'. One evening when I was raiding my pantry and digging my head deep to come up with a healthy snack, I spotted a pack of peanuts. I was immediately reminded of these yummy peanut ladoos we used to have when we go visiting my grandma (my mom's mom). Everytime we went to visit her, my aunt (mom's youngest sister) also accompanied us. My mom and she would go off to hand-pound(they never used the mixie) all the ingredients and come up with this tasty treats. They used to stop off in between and deeply engage in gossips and we would literally have to shake them to get them back to work :-) I used to stand next to them and everytime they were about to stop the work I would get them back on track.. Anything for Peanut Ladoos!!!!

Reminiscing this just makes me nostalgic. Anyway.... lets get to the recipe.

Ingredients:

Peanuts - 1 cup
Jaggery - 3/4 cup (add or reduce to taste)
Cardamom - 4 pods



Procedure:

1. If using raw peanuts, get them roasted and peeled.
2. Once you have the peanuts ready, toss all the ingredients in a blender and pulse it repeatedly to get a coarse mixture.
3. Make sure not to grind in one go 'coz you might end up with an oily sticky mixture. But if you do end up with the sticky mixture still continue to make the ladoos 'coz it will still taste sinfully delicious.
4. When you have the coarse mixture, just go ahead and make ladoos when slightly warm. Just take care not to press too hard 'coz you might not be able to shape them.

Ta-da!!! Liitle tasty peanut ladoos are ready!!! Just gobble them down with tea or just as is..
