  • Blender


  • 4 Chapathi / Roti / Phulka leftovers work great
  • cup Brown sugar
  • 7 or 8 Almonds
  • a pinch Cardamom powder
  • 2 tablespoon Ghee / Nei melted
  • 2 tablespoon Milk


  • Make the chapathi and let it sit for a day for better results. Tear them into tiny pieces.
  • Heat about 1 tablespoon of ghee in a pan and add the torn pieces. Fry them in low flame, taking care not to burn the pieces until they are toasted and crispy. Leave them to cool down.
  • Transfer the cool pieces in a blender / food processor and shred them into coarse powder. Transfer this to the pan again. Also chop or grind the almonds into small pieces. I coarsely powdered my almonds as well.
  • Add the brown sugar, almond pieces/powder and cardamom powder to the pan along with the powdered chapathi.
  • Heat it into low flame and keep mixing. Add the remaining ghee and let everything come together.
  • Add a tablespoon of milk and try to see if you can form the laddu. If the mixture is still crumbly, then add a little more milk and form ladoos.
  • You can store it outside for a couple of days if the weather is cooler or refrigerate the laddus.
