Pea Nut Ladoo

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi All,
Continuing the series of making Ladoos. This time it is Pea nut Ladoo. It is every one's favorite and kids love it the most.

Ingredients :
Peanut - 1/2 kilo

Roast the penut and remove the skin. Break the peanut into big pieces with mortar and pestle.
Keep it aside.

To make jaggery syrup, we need
Jaggery - same as Peanut(Measure  in a cup, and take the same amount of jaggery)
Salt  - a pinch
Water -1/4 cup or less
Ghee - 1 tbsp
Click Here to make the Jaggery syrup. But boil the syrup for few more minutes to make the syrup more thick.

Other ingredients:
Dalia powder - 1/4 cup
Dry coconut - 1/4 cup, grated
Nutmeg powder - 1 tsp
Take pea nuts  in a big and wide plate. 
Add  dry coconut, Nut Meg  powder and dalia powder to it. Mix it well and keep it ready.

(You may not succeed the first time! I am making it since childhood and closing my eyes I can tell the correct consistency of syrup(hehe, boasting!!)
Practice makes you not perfect but brings you near perfection. 
So, don't worry as you will also get after trying 2-3 times, but if you know the trick before only, then I am happy.)

Now you should be quick:
Put this syrup to the pea nut plate. Spread it slowly so that the the peanut gets the syrup evenly. 
Now take a small quantity and make balls by mildly pressing with both the palms to give proper ball shape and bind the peanut properly.
This will make around 20 ladoos.
Keep it to cool for sometime. Store it in a jar or box.
Sending this to 
which is started by Me.
Keep Smiling,
