Multigrains Ghee Laddoo/Sathumaavu Nei Urundai

A packet of whole multigrains aka Sathumaavu cereals were sitting in my pantry since a while. Though i grabbed this packet of mixed whole multigrains for making the usual traditional porridge with it, i changed my mind to dish out some dangerously laddoos with them. Its quite an authentic sweet balls, which is quite often prepared in many South Indian households just to feed everyone at home with these healthy and nutritious grains. Am running this week's blogging marathon with Make one type of Sweets, though Indians have many delightful sweets, i opted for laddoos. Hence am posting three different laddoos for this week's theme. Yesterday, i posted an interesting puffed lotus seeds and edible gum laddoos which is obviously a delicious sweets to give a try at home, and my today's post is this extremely delicious saathumaavu nei urundai, trust me these balls are dangerously addictive.

Sathmaavu Laddoo, Sweet Sathumaavu Balls

Since i prepared this laddoo with whole mixed grains, this laddoo wont be as smooth as like those laddoos prepared with storebought sathumaavu mix. I grinded those grains bit coarse powder as i felt like having something bit crunchy while enjoying these laddoos. Rolled with generous amount of ghee, these laddoos stays prefect for more than a week in room temperature if they are conserved properly. If you dont feel like dishing out this laddoos with ghee aka clarified butter, just sprinkle some milk and roll them. Yes even milk works awesome to prepare this laddoos and the shelf life may varies. Enjoy the goodness of the wholegrains by dishing out these sort of healthy sweet balls out of them.

Dry roast the whole multigrains until a nice aroma comes from.

That is a great idea to use sathumaavu. I have some sitting in my pantry as well and just making kanji with it is not helping. I will make some for my ladoo loving boys.
