Wheat & Nut Laddoo

These delicious laddoos(fudge) just melt in your mouth. They are low fat, guilt free, super easy to make and wholesome. If you have a sweet tooth, you will love it.

Makes 5-6 laddoos

Whole Wheat Flour-1/4 cup
Assorted dry fruits & nuts-1/4 cup(to be ground) + 1 tsp(to be added while rolling into balls)
Butter-1 tbsp
Sugar-1 tbsp(powdered or granulated)
Cardamom-1/4 tsp

Melt butter and prepare ghee. Add the flour and roast on low flame till golden brown(about 3 minutes).
Grind 1/4 cup of assorted dry fruits & nuts without adding water.
You can use any nuts of your choice. I used a mixture of almonds, walnuts, roasted cashews, raisins, dried apricot, sweetened coconut flakes, dried pineapple.
When the flour is still warm, add the ground nuts, cardamom, sugar and a tsp of broken nuts. Mix well and shape them into small balls.

Note: Use dry roasted unsalted cashews. Other nuts can be added raw.
