Peanut ladoo recipe with step by step photos – a two ingredient easy recipe of delicious ladoos made with roasted peanuts and jaggery.

Peanuts are loved at my place. usually we just roast the peanuts and store them in an air tight jar. So when we want to snack on, we just have some peanuts. I do not add any salt or spices to the roasted peanuts and keep them plain. Peanuts are nutrient dense nuts and so its good to include them in your food.

With roasted peanuts, I also make peanuts ladoos. There are many ways of making peanut ladoos either solely only with peanuts or with addition of ingredients like coconut, sesame seeds or nuts. Some recipes call for a soft ball or hard ball consistency in jaggery syrup for making peanut ladoos. I will add this recipe too in some time.

In the ladoo recipe shared here, only two ingredients are required – peanuts and jaggery. all you need is to roast the peanuts, grind with jaggery powder and you are sorted. The recipe is similar to making peanut butter, just that we are not grinding the peanuts too much. Just enough so that it can be shaped into a ladoo.

These peanut ladoos stay good for about a week at room temperature and for 15 to 20 days in the fridge. You can serve these ladoos plain or even serve it as a sweet snack in the tiffin box. The recipe can also be easily doubled or tripled.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup peanuts - 160 grams of peanuts
  • cup powdered or grated or chopped jaggery

Instructions

roasting peanuts

  • Heat a thick bottomed pan. Keep the flame to low or medium and add the raw peanuts.
  • Stirring at intervals begin to roast the peanuts.
  • Keep on roasting till the peanuts become crunchy. The peanuts should not have even a bit of rawness in them. They should be roasted very well. 
  • Just cool and taste a few peanuts. You should not feel even a bit of hardness or rawness while eating them. If yes then continue to roast for some more minutes. You can even roast the peanuts in an oven.
  • Once the peanuts are roasted well, keep the pan down and let the peanuts cool at room temperature.
  • When the peanuts come at room temperature, rub the peanuts between your palms, so that their skin peels off. Do this with all the peanuts. This part of peeling peanuts takes some time.

grinding - making peanut ladoo mixture

  • Now add the peanuts in a grinder jar.
  • Add jaggery powder or grated jaggery.
  • Run the mixie or grinder for a few seconds and then stop. Check the texture of the ground peanuts. Continue again for few seconds and stop. Grind till you get a coarse consistency in the peanuts.
  • You can also use the pulse option in your mixer-grinder. You have to grind in parts till a bit of oil releases from the peanuts. 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 peanuts and you will get peanut butter.
  • Take the ladoo mixture in a plate or tray.
