Wish you all my lovely readers a very happy Krishna Janmashtami. On this auspicious occasion, I prepared beaten rice laddoo. As beaten rice is one of the favorite things of lord Krishna. Beaten rice is also known as poha in Hindi and Avalakki in Kannada.
This particular laddoo is one of my twin daughter’s favorite things in this whole wide world. I learned this addictive crunchy laddoo recipe from my sister’s Mother-In-Law. Now let’s get started with the recipe.
Whole wheat flour-1 cup
Chickpea flour/Besan -1 cup
Thick beaten rice – 2 cup
Sugar- 2 ½ cup
Clarified butter (ghee) – ½ to ¾ cup (as required)
Dry fruits – 1 cup (We like chopped almond and cashew)
Cardamom powder – 1tsp
- Dry roast wheat flour and chickpea flour separately in a thick bottomed vessel and keep a really small flame in a gas stove, so that flour will not get burnt and fry uniformly.
- Fry dry fruits with a little ghee and keep aside.
- Deep fry beaten rice and put it in a tissue.
- Take all these things (roasted flour, dry fruits, fried beaten rice, and cardamom powder) in a large bowl, to this add powdered sugar and mix everything nicely.
- To the above mixture add melted little hot clarified butter or ghee and mix it with clean hand.
- Once you are able to make laddoo stop adding clarified butter and continue making laddoo.
- After it cools down, store this in a clean, dry airtight container and enjoy whenever you feel like.
