Carrot & Almond Laddoos

Never thought of making laddoos with carrots and almonds until i tried out this combo two back for our evening snacks, as i wanted to give a trial i prepared a small quantity of this laddoos with finely grated carrots and almonds with some ricotta cheese,milk powder and sugar..This laddoos gets ready super fast and vanished quickly also..Seriously i couldnt stopped munching this healthy,easy breezy and nutty laddoos, even my teddies enjoyed it a lot..Carrot gives a wonderful colour and almonds give a fantastic nutty texture and while ricotta cheese and milk powder helped a lot for binding the carrots and almond meal..A fabulous and colourful laddoos to enjoy without any guilt..Sending to Anamika's Drive Me Nuts..

Carrot & Almond Laddoos

1/2cup Carrots(grated finely)
1/4cup Almond meal
1/4cup Ricotta cheese
2tbsp Milk powder
1tbsp Ghee
1/2cup Sugar
1/2tsp Cardamom powder
Few almond flakes

Heat the ghee in a heave bottomed pan, add the grated carrots and saute for few minutes, add immediately the sugar, ricotta cheese,milk powder to the carrots and cook everything in high flame until the carrot -cheese mixture gets slightly thickens..Add now tha almond meal,cardamom powder,cook for few minutes until the mixture gets off from the bottom of the vessel and put off the stove..

Make 7-8medium sized balls from this slightly cooled mixture and roll over the almond flakes..Enjoy!
