Wheat Laddoo

My kids love to chomp down biscuits/cookies for the evening snack. While that is an only indulgence or junk food that they are allowed, I was still not happy about it and started to look for alternatives and that’s when mom suggested making laddoos!  

I know they loved the Rava laddoos I made a few months ago, so I decided to experiment a little and try another type – Godi laddoo or Wheat laddoo. These laddoos are made out of 3 key ingredients – wheat, ghee, and sugar and you can make them in less than 30 minutes. This was my first time making them and I thought they came out pretty well. My little one agreed as well and confirmed by eating 2 laddoos without waiting for them to cool down and then asked for more :).
