  • 130 grams badam or 1 cup almonds
  • 60 grams jaggery or ⅓ cup jaggery powder or grated jaggery (gud)
  • 2 tablespoons raisins (kishmish) - optional

Instructions

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.

  • remove the badam ladoo mixture in the same bowl or plate in which we cooled the almonds & raisins.
  • now take a small portion of the ladoo mixture in your palms and begin to shape it into ladoos.
  • make badam ladoos with the rest of the mixture.
