How to make Atukula Ladoo | Sweetened Poha Energy Balls Recipe

  1. To prepare Atukula Ladoo | Sweetened Poha Energy Balls Recipe, in a kadai or heavy bottomed pan, roast flattened rice in one table spoon of ghee (optionally) till poha becomes crisp. It changes color and starts releasing aroma.

  2. Switch off heat and let it cool. Then, in a grinder, grind roasted flattened rice into powdered form.

  3. Add jaggery, coconut powder, cashew nut powder and grind again to make a smooth and consistent mix.

  4. Transfer the above mix into a bowl.

  5. Add remaining ghee and cardamom powder. Mix well.

  6. Now, make laddus of required size gently using your palms to give it a firm shape. Usually, the laddus should bind well together with these proportions. But, if it is not happening, you can sprinkle few drops of milk which will help in binding.

  7. Keep the laddus on a serving tray/plate and decorate with silver foil(optionally). Serve Atukula Ladoo | Sweetened Poha Energy Balls Recipe with masala chai during evenings.
