- Three cups whole wheat flour
- One cup grated coconut
- One cup split urad dal
- One cup dry dates powder
- One cup jaggery powder
- One cup ghee
- One cup mixed nuts
- One cup natural gum
- ½ teaspoon cardamom powder
- ½ teaspoon nutmeg powder
- One teaspoon dry ginger powder
How To Prepare?
- To begin preparing the Dinkache ladoo, heat a pan and dry roast the black urad dal on a low flame.
- Keep steering the dal to be sure that it doesn’t catch the bottom of the pan. You will get a nice aroma when you roast the dal. Take out the dal on another plate and let it cool down for a bit. Once it gets cool, grind it to a fine powder.
- Grate the dry coconut using a grinder. Take the edible gum and make a fine powder out of it.
- Roast the dry fruits on low flame for five minutes. Once it gets cool, grind them in a mixer.
- Heat a pan with a heavy bottom and add ½ cup ghee to it. Add urad dal to it and fry on low flame till it is pink in color. This may take almost five minutes.
- Add wheat flour to the urad dal in batches and keep on stirring. Roast the wheat flour for 10-minutes without adding ghee.
- To this mixture, add the powdered gym. Roast it again for 3-minutes.
- Now add the powdered dry dates to it. Also, add grated coconut and chopped nuts to the mixture. Keep on steering all of them by using a spoon.
- Switch off the heat and add jaggery, dry ginger powder, and nutmeg powder to the mixture. Blend everything well. You can also try to taste the ladoo at this time.
- Now your ladoo mixture is ready. Now start giving a round shape to the ladoo.
- Make ladoos when the mixture is warm. If the mixture cools down, it will get difficult to bind ladoos.
- On cooling, keep ladoos in an airtight container.
Serve these delicious ladoos to your guests, and you will get lots of appreciation.
