  • Whole-wheat atta (gehun ka atta) (2 1/2 cups)
  • Powdered sugar (burra shakar) (3/4-1 cup)
  • Clarified butter (ghee) (1/2–3/4 cup)
  • Almonds (badam), chopped (1/4 cup)
  • Cashew nuts (kaju), chopped (1/4 cup)


  • In a wide kadhai or heavy-bottom pan, add 1/2 cup ghee and whole-wheat atta.
  • Keeping the flame low, keep stirring it for 8–10 mins until it develops a nutty aroma and acquires a pinkish brown colour.
  • Don't stop stirring or the atta might burn.
  • Remove from the flame and place it in a large bowl or plate.
  • Add the chopped nuts and powdered sugar.
  • Mix well and try to form lemon-sized pedas (balls), if the mixture does not come together, add more ghee and mix again until you are able to form tight laddoos.
