Today I will share a Bajra laddoo recipe which is a very easy and quick one to make. It is not a sweet one but a savoury one that can be enjoyed with curd, baingan bharta or lasun chutney. Millet or Bajra, as known in Hindi, is a good source of iron, calcium and fiber. Consuming millets during winters proves really beneficial. Millet roti tends to get dry in winter, so I have twisted this to make laddoos with these nutritious millets.
Lasan(Garlic) & Bajra( Millet) Laddoo
Healthy eating can also be somewhat of a luxury in the wintertime. This is a very old recipe from Gujarat. It is a very rustic and simple dish that is especially made during winters, because all ingredients that are ‘hot’ for the body. The main two ingredients are green garlic which is fresh tasting, much milder than mature garlic.
2- 3 tablespoons of ghee.
3-4 chappatis – made from 3 cups of millet flour and water.
1 cup finely chopped green garlic/ Salt to taste.
1. Break the chappatis and grind into fine crumbs in a mixer.
2. Heat the ghee in a large pan, fry the garlic for a few seconds only,
do not overcook it.
3. Add the ground mixture and mix with the ghee and lasan.
4. Add half cup water and cook till its looks like dough.
5. Remove from heat, let it cool , and shape into meduim size balls.
6. Serve hot with curd, raita or aubergine bhurta.
I think this can be easily stored in an airtight container for few days. Just need to heat on eating. An easy recipe for winters, rich in iron content. If you have any other recipe with bajra atta do share your links in the comments below. 100% you will love making and relishing this dish.
