Atta Ladoo (Whole wheat balls with almonds)

Atta Ladoo

Atta ladoos are rich and savory. They can be eaten along with breakfast, snack or a dessert. They are very healthy and nutritious for kids too and keep them energetic for a long time. My mother in law makes these once a while for the kiddos and they like it.

Serves: 10 Ladoos
Preparation time: 2 mins.
Cooking time: 12 mins. + 15 mins. to make ladoos = 28-30 mins.


1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup powdered sugar
2 tablespoons almonds
½ teaspoon cardamom powder
½ cup ghee or as required


  1. Heat ghee in a heavy bottom pan, roast the whole wheat flour until golden brown.
  2. Stir continuously to roast the flour evenly until you get a nice aroma.This would take around 10-12 minutes.
  3. Switch off the flame and when still warm, add in sugar, chopped almonds and cardamom powder.
  4. Mix well so that sugar is mixed evenly with the flour. Let the mixture cool for few minutes.
  5. When the heat is tolerable, divide the mixture into 10 equal portions and make round balls to form ladoos.
  6. If you are not able to form round balls, just heat a little ghee and add more to the mixture. Try again and you should be able to make it.
  7. Garnish with almonds on top of ladoo.
  8. Serve as is and store the remaining ladoos in airtight container.
