Policha Laddu / Policha Ladoo / Chapathi Ladoo
Leftover roti is common in many household and this Policha ladoo comes to the rescue. Transform the leftover chapathi into a delicious dessert and no one will even know that is made with roti.
- 4 Chapathi / Roti / Phulka leftovers work great
- ⅓ 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.
