Almond Butter Laddus

Almond Butter Laddu

Earlier last week, I stumbled upon Rachna's blog and found a an interesting recipe for preparing laddus using peanut butter.  It's such an easy recipe, with no cooking at all.  Surprisingly I had all the ingredients at home and moreover it was my friend's daughter's birthday, so I went ahead and made it immediately.

First I tried it with peanut butter.  One thing I forgot to notice was, the peanut butter had sodium in it, so the laddus were both sweet and salty.  But we did like the taste.

Later I remembered about the almond butter which was lying in my pantry after using it for the almond butter bread.  Immediately I checked the nutrition label and I saw 0gm Sodium.  So I made the ladoos again with almond butter and it was absolutely delicious.

For my laddoos I used 1/2 a cup of almond butter, 1/4 a cup of regular icing sugar, 1/4 cup of khoya and a pinch of cardamom powder.  Simply combine all the ingredients and shape it into balls.  I got 13 small ladoos for this measurement.

    Hmm… Dear madhu.. I have a similar recipe minus the khoya with a lot of other stuff… will post soon 😉

    Sivajini: Khoya is called gova in tamil. It’s like palgova but without sugar. Your mother will know it for sure. It’s milk reduced to form a solid. It’s available in Indian grocery stores in the freezer.

    Kalva, it was new to me too, when I first saw the recipe. I was a bit skeptical about doing it but in the end totally loved the laddus.

    Spillay, I’m very fine. Actually I did keep checking your blog and thought you were on a vacation.

    Lakshmi, thank you very much.

    Laddus look delicious and really so simple to make. I love these ‘no-cook’ laddus specially on certain poojas when you need to make at least 3-4 different types of sweets. This one is definitely a recipe to keep in mind.

    Madhu accka the recipe looks superb.

    I have a question though…What is Khoya? Is there another name for it?I have never heard of it till now. Did you get at the local grocers or an Indian store?

    I’m just trying to figure out if I’d be able to get it here in Toronto.
