INSTANT Milk Powder Ladoo

         

no-cook, extremely rich and melt-in-mouth texture ladoos using milk powder instantly, perfect for any celebration !







Diwali celebration finally comes to an end as today is Bhai Dooj which is the last day of the 5 days long celebration of Diwali. The name "Bhai Dooj" indicates 'Bhai' showcasing 'Brother' and 'Dooj' means 'Second'. This is celebrated every year on Dwitiya Tithi, Shukla Paksha of the Kartik month to mark the bond shared between a brother and a sister. 

'Bhai Dooj' is also known with different names in different regions around India such as Bhai Phonta, Yama Dwitiya, Bhai Tika, Bhai Beej and many more. This is quite similar to the Raksha Bandhan celebration. Still there are some differences -

πŸ“Œ On Raksha Bandhan the sisters tie a sacred thread on the wrist of brothers where as in Bhai Dooj, aarti and tika play a major part which is done by the sister. 
πŸ“Œ On Raksha Bandhan the brother vows to protect his sister at all costs and in Bhai Dooj the sister vows to protect her brother. 
πŸ“Œ Raksha Bandhan is observed in shraban month and Bhai Dooj is in Kartik month of Hindu Calender.

As today is Bhai dooj, so I have prepared a sweet dish Milk Powder Ladoo

These ladoos completely fall under No-Cook category and INSTANT too.


Ingredients for these Ladoos -


  • Milk powder - This is the major ingredient in the ladoo making process. I have used Amul milk powder.
  • Sugar - Just powder the regular sugar and use it. Also adjust the sweetness by adding more powdered sugar or little less. 1/4 cup is perfectly fine for 1.5 cup milk powder at my place.
  • Ghee - This gives a nice texture to the ladoos.
  • Cardamom powder - It enhances the flavor all over the sweet.
  • Dry fruit - Pick any dry fruits of choice, just finely chop and use. I have picked cashew, almond, raisin and pistachio.
  • Desiccated coconut - It is used to coat the ladoos. Freshly grated coconut can be opted too.
  • Milk - This addition is completely optional. If the ladoos don't take shape easily then only add.




What are the steps to follow ?


In a mixing bowl mix milk powder, powdered sugar, cardamom powder and all the chopped dry fruits using a spoon. Then add ghee and mix to get a breadcrumb texture. Take 1-2 tbsp of mixture at a time and start shaping like ladoo. If it doesn't take the shape, then sprinkle 0.5-1 tbsp of milk all over the mixture and again start shaping. On a plate take desiccated coconut and roll the ladoo to coat well. Keep on a plate and make similarly more ladoos.


Dietary note :


    ✔ Gluten free
    ✔ Vegetarian dessert
    ✔ No-cook recipe
    ✔ INSTANT sweet
    ✔ Festive friendly





    Ladoos are the most famous sweet dish in all occasions, celebrations not only in Indian culture but also worldwide. The varieties of ladoo in India is just overwhelming. This milk powder ladoo is just like the others. But yes, here no cooking is required. Instantly one can make and have these ladoos. These taste extremely rich and have a melt in the mouth texture with tiny crunch of dry fruits. So whenever in hurry and want to make some sweet, this is the perfect bite size choice.


    Can these be prepared ahead of time and stored for later ?


      yes, one can make a large batch of these ladoos and simply keep in an air-tight container until serving.

      These ladoos stay fresh for 1-2 weeks if store in refrigerator.




      And, yes !!!
