My Notes:

  • Do not add the ghee fully, add little by little keep mixing then shape and see.
  • If you add more ghee it will be overpowering and the texture of the ladoo will change.
  • You can add other nuts and dry fruits of your choice.
  • The white sago variety is only suitable for this ladoo, do not use nylon sago.
  • Roasting sago is a very important step here, do it in low flame with patience as it takes time.May be you can increase the flame to low medium but not above that.
