Multi grain Laddus | Nutritious Laddus (Step by Step Pics)

 Multi grain laddus is a healthy snack treat for kids and grown ups too.These laddus were made as a trial experiment but everyone loved these laddus very much.Kids loved taking them for their snack box.These laddus are very filling and addictive too.These laddus have a mix of grains,dals,dry fruits and nuts and are ploaded with ghee flavors.I have used jaggery to add sweetness but you can always add powdered sugar or brown sugar too.The jaggery has no impurities and so I used it grated but if you feel the jaggery has impurities then dilute,strain and use.I found this a healthy way to sneak in dals which otherwise my kids would pick and separate them out from the curry/dish.Try these laddus,am sure you would love these !!

Preparation time~ 30 mins
Cooking time~ 10 mins 
Servings~30 balls

quick oats 1 cup
ragi flour 1/2 cup
wheat flour 1/2 cup
pottukadalai 1/2 cup
black eyed peas 1/2 cup
split moong dal 1/2 cup
jaggery 1.5 cups(3 large cubes grated) 
cherries 1/2 cup
cashews 1/2 cup
almonds 1/2 cup
walnuts 1/2 cup
cardamom powder 1 tsp
dry ginger powder 1/2 tsp(optional)
ghee 1 cup(used 3/4 cup)

  • Dry roast each of the items separately in a pan;oats,pottukadala,split moong dal(cherupayaru parippu),black eyed peas(lobia) and ragi flour,wheat flour.Powder the pottukadala(split dalia) and black eyed peas first,followed by split moong dal.Sieve the flour in a large bowl.Finally add in oats and grind to powder,sieve too(yielded 3.5 cups of powdered mix).Add the roasted ragi flour and wheat flour in the bowl.
  • Heat the same pan and dry roast the nuts till slightly browned(takes 3-4 mins on medium flame).Switch off flame and coarsely powder.Add to the flour powders.

  • Add in the chopped cherries,cardamom powder,dry ginger powder.Mix well.Grate the jaggery and add.
  • Heat ghee(1 cup) in the pan and when hot,remove 1/4 cup ghee from the pan(add if required when you start making laddus.I used only 3/4 cup for this measure of flours).Add in the powdered mixture in the pan on low flame.Mix it well to combine,slow roast for about 2 mins and switch off flame.

  • When warm,pinch out small portions of this mixture and by placing in the palms of non dominant hand ,press tightly and make laddus(balls).
  • Place in a clean dry plate.Repeat the same till you finish making all of the mixture.Enjoy or store in air tight containers.

* You can make small quantities by reducing the measures.Also,mix and match the lentil and grams as per your family preference.
* Make sure the mixer/coffee grinder and all utensils used to make this laddus are free of moisture.Else,they may turn bad. I stored them for 3 weeks at room temperature.
* You can add dates or raisins in place of cherries.I had a pack of cherries so used that.
* Walnuts,cashews and almonds are your personal preference,don't use if you don't like the flavors.Also,you can roast them in ghee and then powder for added flavor.
