Serves 10
  • 250 g Bengal Gram Flour (Senaga Pindi)
  • 250 g Sugar
  • 1 tsp Cardamom Powder
  • Oil, to fry
  • 1 cup Water
  • 50 g Cashew Nuts, fried in a tbsp ghee
  • 1 tsp Ghee
How to make Bandaru Ladoo:
  • Take a small pan and heat oil in it and add it to the Senaga Pindi.
  • Mix it well with hand and prepare a dough using water (it should have the same consistency as puri dough).
  • Place the disc with medium-size hole in the muruku press and fill it with dough, leaving space for the upper part of press.
  • Heat the oil and carefully press the dough in the oil, to make spirals, making sure that the bottom of the press is away from the oil (about 2 inches). Do it carefully, so that the hot oil fumes do not reach your hand.
  • Turn it over and fry it till it turns golden brown.
  • Drain the oil and repeat the process till the dough is over.
  • Powder the prepared spirals in a blender and keep aside
  • Now, take sugar and mix water in it, to make light syrup.
  • Add powdered spirals, cardamom powder and fried cashew nuts in the sugar syrup and mix well.
  • Remove from the flame and prepare lemon sized balls from the mixture, while applying a little ghee on the palm, so that it does not stick.
  • Bandaru ladoos are ready to serve.
