Atte Ke Laddoo
- Duration: 25 minutes
- Serves: 2 to 4 people
Spice Level: Zero
Remember to slow-roast the aata till it has turned pinkish in colour and has started to emanate a heady aroma. Be liberal with the ghee, and once cooked, wait for the mix to become lukewarm before starting to make the laddoos. It is helpful to remember that if the flour mixture turns cold, the ghee will begin to misbehave and the laddoos may not shape up well.
