badam ladoo recipe with step by step photos – quick, easy and tasty badam ladoo made with minimal ingredients.

badam ladoo

sharing one more sweet recipe which is very easy and quick to make. this recipe of badam laddu is made with just 4 ingredients and within 20 minutes the ladoos can be made.

in fact these badam ladoos make for a healthy sweet snack for kids. usually when i prepare ladoos, i do try to avoid adding sugar and prefer to add jaggery, if its possible in the recipe. with ladoos made from nuts and seeds, you can easily add jaggery instead of sugar. you can even use palm jaggery or coconut sugar to make these ladoos. like most nuts, almonds are also a nutrient dense nut. so its better to include them in your diet.

the taste of these almond ladoos is very different than the taste of badam ladoos made with a sugar or jaggery syrup. the taste is similar to the taste of ground peanut ladoos, minus the peanut taste. since i wanted to post a quick and easy version for ganesh chaturthi, i made these ladoos today, so that its easier to make during festive occasions.

you can even make these ladoos, during regular days and give to kids. i make small batches and store as ground almonds can go rancid easily. if making for festive occasions, then you can easily make a large batch by doubling or tripling the recipe. if making for your family, then you can make a small batch or just double up. refrigerate these ladoos for a longer shelf life.

i have roasted the almonds. you can even blanch the almonds and then roast them. since blanching, peeling each almond takes some time, roasting them is a better option as far as saving time is concerned. almonds are warming, so these ladoos are good during cold seasons and monsoons. for winters, you can also check this dry fruits barfi and dry fruits ladoo recipe.

if you do not want to add jaggery or sugar in the recipe, then i suggest to add some raisins, soaked figs and dates or dry berries as natural sweeteners. in this recipe i have used some raisins and its entirely optional to use them.

roasting and grinding nuts-seeds is one way you can make ladoos for your family. the fats present in the nuts and seeds help in binding the ladoos and you do not need to add any ghee or oil for binding. there are various combinations possible while using nuts, e.g. you can easily make a badam pista ladoo or kaju kishmish ladoo. three to four dry fruits can also be added to prepare ladoos.

the recipe makes for about 10 small badam ladoos. you can serve them immediately or store them in an airtight box in the fridge.

INGREDIENTS FOR badam ladoo recipe

(1 CUP = 250 ML)
  • 130 grams badam or 1 cup almonds
  • 60 grams jaggery or ⅓ cup jaggery powder or grated jaggery (gud)
  • 2 tablespoons raisins (kishmish) - optional
  • 3 green cardamoms, seed kept and husks discarded (choti elaichi)

HOW TO MAKE badam ladoo recipe

roasting almonds:

  • heat a thick bottomed pan. keep the flame to low or medium and add 1 cup raw almonds.
  • stirring at intervals, begin to roast the almonds.
  • keep on roasting till the almonds become crunchy. 
  • just cool and taste a few almonds. but make sure you don't burn them or brown them too much. you can even roast the almonds in an oven.
  • when the almonds have got roasted, add 2 tablespoons raisins and mix well.
  • switch off the flame and remove the roasted almonds and raisins in another bowl or plate. let the almonds become warm.

grinding - making badam ladoo mixture:

  • then add both almonds and raisins in a mixer or grinder jar. also add seeds from 3 green cardamoms.
  • now add 1/3 cup powdered jaggery. you can even use palm jaggery, coconut sugar or cane sugar instead of jaggery.
  • run mixie or grinder for some seconds and then stop. check the consistency. continue in the same way, till you get a fine consistency in the almonds with some oil released from the almonds. you can also use the pulse option in your grinder.
  • you have to run the grinder in parts till a bit of oil releases from the almonds. 
  • take a small portion of the mixture in your hands and then press. it should hold shape and not crumble. 
  • don’t grind at one stretch or grind too much as then much oil will be released from the almonds and you will get almond butter.

  1. Hey Dassana,

    I have some almond flour at home which I need to use somehow. Can I follow this same recipe by roasting the almond flour a little?

  2. Thanks Dassana and Amit ! This is truly a simple, easy and a power packed healthy recipe ! Everyone just loved it when I made it today … 🙂 Keep up the good work !

  3. Thank you for this lovely recipe. It was the first time I had made ladoos but it was simple to follow and made great vegan ladoos – an easy way to eat almonds and gud!

  4. I did try this recipe.. but after powdering the badam n jaggery initially I was able to make 4 laddos but after tht it started breaking.. then I added the it was gud.

      • okay. you need to grind more, till some oil is felt in the mixture. when you press a small portion of the ground almonds, it will hold itself together. this is due to the oil present in the almonds. if the almonds are just ground to a fine powder and oil is not released from them, then the mixture will be powdery and not be able to form into ladoos. hope this helps.

  5. Hi Dassanna !
    I tried this recipe yesterday and absolutely loved it ! I have never made ladoos before but this ladoo is so nice ! Will definitely make again. Have shared the recipe with mum and aunt already. Thank You !
