  • 1 cup Green Gram

  • 3 tbsp Sesame seeds
  • 1 cup Black Urad Dal
  • 1/2 cup Peanuts
  • 2 & 1/2 cup Jaggery
  • 4 tbsp Ghee
  • 1 tbsp Almond
  • 1 tbsp Cashewnut
  • 1 tsp Cardamom Powder


  • Add Green Gram to a pan.. Dry roast on a low flame till the colour slightly changes and you get a nice aroma. Switch off, transfer to plate and allow it to cool down.
  • Next, add horsegram to the pan. Dry roast on a low flame until the colour changes to light brown. Switch off, transfer to a plate and allow it to cool down.
  • Add Sesame seeds to the pan. Dry roast the sesame seeds on a low flame till they crackle and change colour lightly. Takes around 2-3 minutes. Switch off, transfer to a plate and allow it to cool down.
  • Dry roast urad dal until it turns crisp and a nice aroma comes. Switch off and let it cool down to room temperature.
  • Dry roast the peanuts on a low flame until they become crunchy and you find few light brown spots on them. Allow them to cool.
  • Finally dry roast almonds and cashews till light brown and let it cool down.
  • Add all the dry roasted ingredients and grind it using a mixer grinder.
  • You can either make a slightly coarse powder or a fine powder. If you want a fine powder, grind the ingredients, sieve it and grind again till you get the desired consistency.
  • Add jaggery , cardamom powder and grind again. Make sure all ingredients are well combined.
  • Now melt the ghee and add it to the above mixture.
  • When the mixture is warm to handle, make small size ladoos and store in an air tight container.


I have used standard measuring cups with yields around 30-35 small size ladoos.
