Ramdana Rajgiri Ladoo is a traditional Indian sweet made with Ramdana (also known as rajgira) flour and ghee. Ramdana is a type of amaranth grain and it is considered to be a fasting food. These ladoos are often made during fasting days and festivals such as Navratri, Shivratri and Ekadashi. The combination of Ramdana flour and ghee gives these ladoos a rich, nutty flavor and a soft and chewy texture.
Here’s a simple recipe for making Ramdana Rajgiri Ladoo:
- 1 cup Ramdana flour
- 1/2 cup ghee
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 1/4 cup chopped nuts (almonds, cashews, pistachios)
- 1 tsp cardamom powder
- A pinch of saffron (optional)
- In a pan, heat ghee over medium heat. Once hot, add Ramdana flour and stir constantly for about 5-7 minutes or until the flour turns golden brown.
- Remove the pan from heat and let it cool for a few minutes.
- Add powdered sugar, chopped nuts, cardamom powder, and saffron (if using) and mix well.
- Take small portions of the mixture and roll it into round balls, shaping them into ladoos.
- Store the ladoos in an airtight container and enjoy them as a sweet treat during fasts or anytime you like.
Note: You can add other ingredients like dried coconut, poppy seeds or sesame seeds for more flavor. If the mixture is too dry, you can add more ghee. If the mixture is too wet, you can add more Ramdana flour.
