Policha Laadoo/ Malida/ Leftover Chapati laddoo

Now this recipe is all over the blogosphere. Each part of India thrives on this dependable sweet recipe both as a quick fix or as a complete meal.

My boy is not a great fan of this dish as yet and I think the primary reason for this is because most times we have phulkas made at my place which are not a great option for making these laddoos. The taste comes from a neatly slow cooked tasty chapati.

Nevertheless both me and DH enjoy this on and off. While I had tons of laddoo recipes to share the reason to share something that does not qualify for a recipe is to emphasise on the underlying kid centric theme.

There is some connection with ghee that Indian mothers share. It instantaneously satisfies the worrying mom about having fed good food to the little tummy. 

5-6 left over chapatis
1 cup grated jaggery
2 tbsp clarified butter/ ghee
1/2  tspn cardamom powder
nuts of choice (optional)
1) In mixie blitz the chapatis to make a coarse powder of the chapatis.
2) Add the ghee , cardamom powder and mix well
3) Now start rubbing in the grated jaggery to form a pliable dough
4) Form small laddoos and garnish with nuts 

Eat same day considering this is already a leftover makeover

It certainly is good food, especially when drowned in ghee. You can do the ghee drowning till a certain age then no matter what you tell them they do not touch ghee.
This used to be my favourite treat for short break.

I have made this with sugar before but the jaggery must lend a more welcoming flavor to laddus.

While these ladoos have been made in my house since I was a child, I thought it was more of a family recipe. After joining this group I have seen how it seems to be a real sweet dish!! Lovely ladoos :)
We love to make these ladoos in winters. Makes me feel nostalgic.
