Sathu Maavu Laddu Recipe
I wanted to post atleast one healthy recipe for this Diwali which we can have it guiltfree so this is my choice, Sathu Maavu Ladoo.Last year I posted a baked version of cornflakes mixture and this year it is this easy and healthy ladoo.I havent used sugar instead chose the healthier option of using palm jaggery.You can replace it with normal jaggery too.

Check out other ladoo recipes that I've posted ealier.

So this is my closure of this Diwali 2014, see you all with few more interesting recipes next week, yes need a small break :)

My Notes:

  • While roasting sathu maavu powder take care not to burn it...keep stirring continuosly.
  • Add ghee little by little and mix well, this way you can control the amount of ghee too.
  • If you want more ghee flavour in your ladoos then add 1/4 cup.But 2 tbsp is just to shape the ladoos.
  • You can replace palm jaggery with normal jaggery too.
  • Heating up ghee and adding is to shape the ladoos easily and it holds its shape well.But mix well with spatula and then handle with your hands only when its warm.
  • It keep well for more than a week.
  • The color of the ladoo purely depends on the color of health mix powder.I used homemade health mix powder, you can use store bought powder too.
  • I had cardamom powder already in the health mix so didn't add it while making ladoos.
