Prepping sugar and nuts

  • 2 teaspoons ghee
  • 25 tablespoons almonds
  • 2 tablespoons pistachios
  • 1/2 cup sugar powdered, increase by another 1/4 cup for sweeter ladoos

Making Atta Ladoo

  • 2 cups wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup ghee
  • 1/8 teaspoon cardamom powder or saffron extract (both are optional)


Prepping Sugar and nuts

  • Heat 2 teaspoons ghee in a heavy pan.
  • Add the measured almonds, pistachios and raisins.
  • Fry in medium flame until golden and coated with ghee. Set aside to cool for a while. Let the ghee remain in the pan.
  • Once cooled, just pulse it twice or thrice in mixer grinder. You can also use spice grinder but grind coarsely.
  • Next powder 1/2 cup sugar well. If you want to to flavor your atta ladoo with cardamom, you can powder 2 or 3 green cardamoms as well with sugar.

Making Atta Ladoo

  • Heat the ghee remaining after roasting the nuts again. Add 2 cups wheat flour to it.

  • Roast in low flame for good 12-14 minutes. The ghee should slightly change in color. Also there will be a very notable nutty flavor.
  • At this stage switch off the flame and add the 1/4 cup ghee.
  • Also add the powdered sugar, nuts mixture. I have also added some saffron extract. Mix thoroughly.
  • Using a tablespoon scoop out portions and roll between your palms to give a ball shape. You have to do this while the mixture is still warm. If the mixture is too loose, add 1-2 teaspoons ghee and try shaping.
  • Once you have shaped all the ladoos, let them cool down well. Store wheat laddu in airtight container.
  • Serve atta ladoo as snacks or dessert as required.


  • Roasting wheat flour perfectly is the key for making best tasting atta ladoo. If the flour is not roasted well, ladoo will be raw with sticky texture.
  • Shape the wheat mixture into ladoos while warm.
  • You can double or halve the recipe.
