Wheat Ladoo/ Kodhumai maavu laadu

Sweets are prepared on everyday basis at home.. recently I found so many of us cling to a dessert after a meal. This sweet can definitely satisfy such craving. you can make it and store it with all the goodness of wheat. One ladoo can make you feel heaven.. 

Wheat flour is a powder made from the grinding of wheat used for human consumption. More wheat flour is produced than any other flour. Wheat varieties are called "soft" or "weak" if gluten content is low, and are called "hard" or "strong" if they have high gluten content. Hard flour, or bread flour, is high in gluten, with 12% to 14% gluten content, its dough has elastic toughness that holds its shape well once baked. Soft flour is comparatively low in gluten and thus results in a loaf with a finer, crumbly texture. Soft flour is usually divided into cake flour, which is the lowest in gluten, and pastry flour, which has slightly more gluten than cake flour.

coming on to the recipe:


  • Whea flour - 1 cup
  • Sugar powder - 3/4 cup
  • Ghee  - required to make ladoo
  • Cardamom powder - required
  • Milk - required to make ladoo
  • Raisin - for pressing on ladoos


  • Take wheat flour and dry roast it in a pantill the raw smell of wheat flour vanishes and the color changes a bit.
  • Take the roasted flour and sugar powder together in a vessel.
  • Add cardamom powder to the mixture.
  • Mix it well. Take a raisin and press on the ladoo while making balls.
  • Add required ghee and make balls or ladoos using hand.
  • If you are adding milk. Sprinkle milk and make tight balls. This cannot be stored for later consumption. If you are using milk , consume immediately.
  • You can see the picture , the dark ones are made by adding milk. the centre ones that are dry are made using ghee.

Enjoy the goodness of wheat!
