Multigrain Ladoo - for a Healthy & Sweet Diwali

Note: What makes this Ladoos healthier is the ingredients used to make it. We know that multigrain intake has the ability to improve digestion, provide a more diverse mineral intake. The other healthy ingredient is the Jaggery instead of Sugar. 


  • Multigrain flour (Jowar, Bajra, Ragi, Wheat): Mixed in equal amounts to make 2 cups 
  • Jaggery: ¼ cup 
  • Ghee: 1 tablespoon 
  • Finely powdered Cardamom: 3 
  • Roasted almonds: 6-7 

  • Heat ghee in a heavy-bottomed pan and fry the multigrain flour lightly on a medium flame till golden brown. 
  • Set aside to cool.
  • Melt jaggery with 1/4 cup water in a pan; filter and remove impurities.
  • Pour the filtered mix back to the pan and add cardamom powder. Boil till it reaches a thick consistency.
  • Leave it undisturbed for 20 seconds. Try to make a ball with the dropped mixture. If you can make a softball, then the syrup is ready.
  • Switch off the flame. Mix the flour and syrup. Make sure there are no lumps. Add nuts and mix well.
  • Grease your hands with ghee and make the balls while the mixture is still warm otherwise rolling the mix becomes difficult.
  • Let the ladoos rest till cool. 
  • Store in airtight container.
