Atte and Gond ke Ladoo | Edible Gum Whole Wheat Truffles

Ate aur Gondh ke ladoo makes me nostalgic, as I have many memories attached to it. It is one of my mom’s best recipe and she makes it a lot. Somehow when I was a child I never relished it as I was not a ladoo fan, except for 1-2 other type of ladoos. The only thing I enjoyed in Gond ke ladoo was the crunch the gond imparted. But she made it a point that I eat them after my elder one’s birth, and I loved them at that time. After that, whenever she use to make my son use to relish on them. Unfortunately Now I can get them only when I meet her. You realize the worth of some goodies and people when you are not with them. Okay okay, no more emotional talking here.

Winters are here and we had a good Christmas break. Kid’s at home definitely calls for snacks and food. So I finally thought of making my mom’s Aate aur Gond ke ladoo. I told my son, I am making Nani’s ladoo and he was overwhelmed. My 2 year old couldn’t understand much, except she said mumma is making snow balls 😀  :D. Anyways coming back to Ladoo’s.

 

What is Gond and How is it used

Gond or Edible gum is odorless, tasteless and a water-soluble mixture obtained from the sap of the plant and then dried. Since it is water soluble it makes it easy to mix with a range of ingredients. The gum is considered a source of powerhouse and is great for boosting immunity, stamina and health. One of the most popular uses in India is to make nourishing ladoos that are consumed by lactating women and those recovering from illness. They are mainly made in winters to provide those extra calories needed in winter.

So I decided to make this for the three day winter warmers theme in BM hosted by PJ of Seduce Your Tastebuds, where we will be making recipes which helps you keep your body warm or about any recipes that are relished in winters. My first recipe in this them was Oil Free & Egg-Less Granola.

So coming to today’s recipe: 

Ingredients

  • 250 gms Whole Wheat Flour
  • 250 gms Powdered Sugar
  • 25 gms Gond (Edible Gum)
  • 50 gms Chopped Badam (Almonds)
  • 200 gms Ghee (Clarified Butter)

Instructions

  • In a heavy bottom pan or a wok add the ghee.
  • On slow to medium heat melt it. Once it becomes hot Fry the gond.
  • There are 2 methods here, either you can fry the gond and use them whole or you can crush them and fry them. But when you crush them fry them separately and in the end, so that your ghee does not go bad.
  • Remove the gond and keep aside.
  • Add in the whole wheat flour and on slow heat roast it along with the ghee. This will take around 30 minutes to get it properly roasted and cooked. So do not rush.
  • Once done switch off and let it cool completely.
  • Now add in the gond, powdered sugar and chopped almonds. Combine everything so that it becomes a uniform mixture.
  • Take a dollop size (like 2 tablespoons) of mixture in hand and form balls by pressing it in between your hands. 
  • Once it forms the shape of ball, gently roll them within your palm to give a nice smooth finish.

Notes

  • Slow roasting is must or else you will burn the mixture.
  • Do not rush, or you will be left with uncooked wheat flour.
