Atta Ladoo Recipe - Wheat ladoo Recipe

atta ladoo recipe

Atta ladoo or ladoo with wheat flour is a healthy Diwali sweet recipe; Atta laddu is also known as churma ladoo or laddu and can be prepared in just under 10 mins. The best thing I like about these wheat ladoo is that, you do not need to make a sugar syrup; which ofcourse might look a bit complicated for some and time consuming.

If you are in a hurry and want to gift a really healthy homemade Indian sweet (mithai) for someone special; then this wheat ladoo should not be missed...its a must try!

Most of us grew up on these during our childhood and I like to pass on that to my children; with a an energetic teenager at home, I have no other option but to stack up healthy snacks at home....

There are different ways/methods to make atta laddu; my recipe is a simple one and I have added a little bit roasted and powdered rawa and some chopped nuts and rasins; that does give an extra crunch. Over the years, I have perfect the recipe and yes, this ladoo recipe is a never fail one.

So this Diwali, make this healthy ladoo for friends and family.
