Saada Laddu

Saada laddus are very easy to make and are very tasty too. I learnt this recipe from my Mother-in-law and here it is for you.


Besan - 1 cup
Sugar - 1 1/2 Cup
Fresh grated coconut - 1/2 Cup

Elachi/Cardamom - 3 pods
Cashew - 10
Raisins - 10
Ghee - 1/2 cup
Water - 1/2 cup

1) Take a big pan and make sugar syrup with 1/2 cup of water. The consistency of the sugar syrup should be the same as we make for gulab jamun.
2) Slowly add grated coconut to the syrup by continously stirring.
3) Let the coconut boil in the syrup for 10 minutes.
4) Add Besan to syrup and stir it continously. Add ghee and keep stirring for about 10-15 mins until the raw smell is gone.
5) Crush Elachi in a pestle/mortar. Fry cashews and raisins in ghee. Add them to the pan along with Elachi powder.
6) Turn off the stove and let the mixture cool for around 15 mins.
7) Make the laddus and let them cool. Saada Laddus can be stored in an air tight container for more than 10 days.
