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 these recipes:

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.

  1. Can I replace roasted almonds with roasted sesame seeds in this recipe? I find it difficult to get to the soft ball stage (which is the recipe you’ve suggested for til laddoo)- so I was wondering if this recipe would work with sesame seeds? Thanks.

      1. This is perfect! Thank you Dassana- I will surely try this.
        I tried the almond jaggery laddoo and it turned out to be awesome. Thanks for replying.

        1. Welcome and glad. Thanks for the feedback on the almond ladoo recipe. Happy Cooking.

  2. 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?

  3. 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 !5 stars
