2 Ingredient Peanut Ladoo Recipe with step by step pictures

One evening a few days back, the three of us, the kids and I, were bored. We did not know what to do. The kids somehow managed to get into a mini fight and the duo were into a deep argument as to who would be the owner of the very tiny pencil that they had just discovered beneath the sofa cushion!

As much as it seemed amusing , I took that opportunity to slip away from the scene and was looking for something to do while these two forgot to bother me.

I entered the kitchen with this months theme [protein rich dishes] in mind and went around opening and shutting the steel containers looking for the protein rich ingredients.

A sudden brainwave prompted me to make these ladoos of which I even posted a short video on my Instagram account. Then I went on to make 2 more varieties of ladoos and all these were done within 15-20 minutes!!

When I came out of the kitchen, the kids seemed to have come to some sort of agreement on the pencil situation and were in deep conversation about some teacher in their school. It was indeed a sight to behold!

Satisfied of making 3 recipes in a short while, I stored them in containers after the taste testing so that I could click pictures the next day.

So here comes this easy breezy peanut ladoo that is rich in protein from the peanuts and also iron rich as I have used jaggery. It is gluten free and vegan. No ghee or oil is used and just two ingredients and less that 5 minutes of your time to make these delicious bites.And best of all no cooking involved and no sugar syrup consistency requires checking! What more can we ask ?

Add powdered jaggery and give it a go in the mixie. DO NOT over do as it will become peanut butter. Grind it in short bursts. Transfer onto a plate and shape into ladoos. It does not require milk / ghee to hold the shape. The oil from the peanut will do that job.
