Raagi Laddu

This is the first time I have tried making this... had heard a lot from some friends that these laddus are nice and nutritious... especially for those who have a heat in the body... raagi or Nachani as they call it in marathi is very good for health in the summer season... the measurements are all my own judgements.. you can vary as per your taste....


Raagi/ Nachni Flour 2 cups
Pure Ghee 1 1/2 cups (may vary)
Icing Sugar 1 1/2 cups (or as per taste)
Cardamom powder 1 tsp
Nutmeg powder 1 tsp

1. In a non stick pan put the raagi flour and start adding the ghee 1 spoon at a time and fry the flour till it changes its colour a bit and starts giving aroma. Add ghee until the consistency till you feel it is enough to make laddoos.
2. Remove from fire and transfer it in another vessel. Let the temperature come down slightly. When it is warm add sugar, cardamom powder and nutmeg powder. If wanted you can add pieces of cashew and almonds.
3. Mix well and then make laddoos out of it.
