- Wheat flour (atta), coarse (2 cups)
- Chickpea flour (besan) (2 tbsp)
- Jaggery (gur) (1 cup)
- Ghee (1/2 cup)
- Cardamom powder (elaichi powder) (1 tsp)
- Poppy seeds (khus-khus) (1 tsp)
- Milk (1 cup)
- In a paraat, mix the wheat flour with chickpea flour. Add 1 tbsp ghee to it and then, mix again.
- Pour milk into the mixture and knead it into soft dough.
- Divide the dough into small balls. Shape each ball like a muthiya.
- In a kadhai, heat some oil. Now, slowly transfer the muthiyas into it and deep fry them on slow flame till you see them turn into a shade of golden brown.
- Remove the fried muthiyas from the kadhai and allow them to cool down.
- Crush these balls till they turn into a mixture.
- Now, in a pan, heat ghee and jaggery on slow flame.
- As soon as the bubbles start appearing in the pan, add the previously prepared mixture to it. Also, add some cardamom powder and stir intermittently.
- Allow the freshly made mixture to cool down a bit and then, make ladva or Laddos from it.
- Sprinkle khus-khus on the Ladva as garnish and serve with tea.
