atta ladoo recipe with step by step photos – easy and quick to prepare delicious ladoos made with whole wheat flour or atta.

some recipes you learn when growing up and some later. this atta ladoo recipe falls in the later category. i learnt to make atta ladoos from my mother in law. every winter, she would make 1 to 2 kilos of atta ladoo for the whole family. it was yearly winter ritual in our punjabi household. during the numbing winters of north india, the heat coming from the hot ladoo mixture, while shaping them used to be comforting & warming to the hands.

i had made these rustic ladoos this time, but a short batch. hence thought of sharing the recipe. ladoos made with flours are easier to prepare at home. atta ladoo is not only good during winters but also in the monsoons. plus they are filling too. we usually use khand or khandsari which is desi raw sugar in the ladoos. though you can make them with regular powdered sugar. i use unrefined cane sugar and then powder it and add to the ladoos.

i always add raisins in these atta ladoos. though you can add your choice of dry fruits. if adding almonds, then separately roast them first. chop them and then add. there is no need to add any flavoring agents like cardamom powder etc in these ladoos. the roasted fragrant nutty aroma of whole wheat flour is so good, you don’t need to add anything else. another similar sweet recipe made in punjabi homes is this panjiri recipe. you can also check atte ka halwa recipe.

these atta ladoos make for a good sweet snack for kids as well as for the whole family. you can even make these during festive occasions and the recipe can be doubled or tripled too. just that more time and hand work will be required while roasting the whole wheat flour.
