Wheat Flour Laddu

Wheat Flour Laddu is a very simple traditional Maharashtrian recipe. It requires very few ingredients, but the final product is awesome. These Laddus are very nutritional and are specially made for ladies who are expecting and have craving for sweets. 

Servings : 15-16 medium size Laddus

For Laddus:

4 cups Wheat flour

2 cups Ghee

3 cups ground Sugar (Sugar powder / Pithi Sakhar)
1/4 tspn Cardamom powder
1 and 1/2 tspns Milk masala or Coarse dry fruit powder (Optional)

For Garnishing :
Almond flakes

Heat ghee in a pan till it melts. Then add the Wheat flour in ghee. Roast it in low flame till it starts releasing ghee and an aroma is released. Ensure that the flame is always low while roasting the wheat flour. This process takes approximately 35-45 minutes.

Once the wheat flour changes its colour, switch off the flame. Then add cardamom powder, milk masala and ground sugar to the mixture. Mix well with the help of spatula and knead it with hands. Make medium size tight balls while the mixture is warm. Sprinkle some almond flakes over it.

These laddus may be stored for 10 to 15 days.


After the wheat flour is completely roasted, you may add a teaspoon of milk as we do while making Besan Laddu.
The ghee should be Pure Ghee (Sajuk Tup)
