 millets laddu recipe
I am happy to share my first post on millet recipes/Siruthaniya unavugal(in Tamil) .As i wanted to start with a easy sweet recipe,i tried this mixed millets laddu adding jaggery.It came out very well.Sendhil loved it a lot.I have seen millet laddu recipes using Ragi or thinai/Foxtail millet.For a change,i used all the millets like thinai,kambu,kuthiravali,Saamai,Varagu,ragi and in addition i used yellow moong dal and barley to make it like sathumaavu urundai/Health mix powder balls.I made this laddu keeping Diabetic patients in mind.So i skipped sugar & used jaggery as i din’t have karuppatti/Palm jaggery in hand.U can give this ladoo to ur kids too if they like jaggery flavour.Else make it with powdered sugar.U can store this laddu for weeks and give ur kids one laddu a day.I am sure they will get all the nutrients required for them.Try this power packed easy millet laddu recipe for ur family and enjoy the health benefits of all the millets in one go !
Do check out my detailed post on Millets varieties,how to identify them and where to buy it Happy.
