MILLET LADDU RECIPE/MILLET LADOO-MILLETS RECIPES

 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 (Siruthaniya ladoo in Tamil). 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 to get all the health benefits of millets. 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 your kids too if they like jaggery flavour. Else make it with powdered sugar. U can store this laddu for weeks and give your 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 your 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 etc.

Will the millets get cooked by dry roasting ?? I am planning to make these ladoos for my 1.5 year old toddler.

Chitra said...

Yes, it gets partially cooked. Sorry, I don't think it will suit 1.5 year old kid. Its better to make porridge instead. If you wish, try giving a very small laddu and check if it suits your kid.
