Gothumai Urundai/Atta Laddu

Gothumai/atta am obsessed with the laddu and halwa made out of it. It is heavenly. Atta has its own aroma which makes it definitely a very different sweet on the whole. During Deepavali in house we make rava laddu and payatha maavu laddu. I had tasted in one of our relatives house and fell in love with them. Got the recipe & the first time I tried I over roasted the atta and it had a different flavour. But after that I had been careful while making them. Just roast the atta until a fragrant smell comes and the colour changes. No need to roast them for long.

Lets get to the recipe.

Ingredients

  • Atta / Gothumai – 1 cup
  • Sugar – 1/2 cup (I used light brown granulated sugar)
  • Ghee – 1/3rd cup
  • Cashews – 1 to 2 tbsp.

METHOD

  • Heat a pan and dry roast the atta/gothumai for 10 to 15 mins. approx. until you get a fragrant smell of atta.
  • Powder the sugar. Leave it a bit grainy as it gives a crunch when you bite into the laddus.
  • Add the sugar to the roasted atta.
  • Heat little ghee and add the chopped cashews and roast it until they are golden brown.
  • Add that to the atta and melt the remaining ghee and add it as well
  • Mix everything and start making laddus. All done now enjoy.
