Quinoa Cornmeal Laddoos

Cant believe its already our last day of blogging marathon, its gonna be three weeks am running blogging marathon with my other buddies with three different themes, needless to say you guys would have already noticed that i couldnt stop posting sweets throughout this week as i choosed Indian sweets as theme for this week of blogging marathon...Thanks to Srivalli, i enjoyed running three weeks of blogging marathon thoroughly..

Most of us know that i love wholegrains very much, after oats and barley my favourite whole grains are quinoa, i tried making many bakes and fusion dishes using this wonderful grains.. I wanted to make some laddoos with this grain since a long that too as a quick and easy laddoos which goes for easy breezy preparation, finally tried them yesterday by combining quinoa and yellow cornmeal together, these quick laddoos turned out super delicious, if you like rava laddoos you will definitely love this cute looking quinoa and cornmeal laddoos surely...I couldnt stop munching this beauties,yep they were quite addictive and delicious..Am so happy to see these quinoa laddoos vanished within few hours...I went for a coarse powder of quinoa for making this laddoos if you want to make smooth laddoos, just grind them more or else sieve the grounded powder..Watever this laddoos are our recent family favourite..

Quinoa Cornmeal Laddoos

1/2cup Quinoa
1/2cup Cornmeal
1cup Sugar
3nos Cardamoms
Few cashew nuts
2tbsp Ghee
Milk (as per need)

Roast the quinoa & cornmeal separately for few minutes in a warm pan until a nice aroma comes out...Grind the roasted quinoa,cornmeal,cardamoms,sugar together as a fine or bit coarse powder,meanwhile heat the ghee and roast the cashew nuts until its turns golden brown, add the grounded powder to the hot ghee and nuts,springle the milk as per need and make medium sized balls from this mixture..Store it in a air tightened box..

Enjoy!
