Dariya Ladoo / Roasted Gram Ladoo

Dariya Ladoo / Roasted Gram Ladoo for this Diwali. Yes its Diwali time a festival celebrated all over India, a festival also called as the Festival Of Lights . Diwali is celebrated with a great Grandeur and feast. The environment itself is so pure that all get deeply into the festivity mood as that of lighting diyas, bursting crackers and of course a feast of sweets and snacks enjoyed and exchanged with friends and relatives.

I have made this Toran / Door Hanging to decorate my house.

Now onto the ladoo. I have earlier shared few Diwali Recipes, and today I am posting Dariya Ladoo or Roasted Gram Ladoo, which is easy and a traditional ladoo prepared on the occasion of Diwali and many other festivals too. Also its my favorite ladoo. Its easy, healthy and mouth melting ladoo. Once you put a bite, you will be tempted to have another one. 


Dariya / Roasted Gram 1 cup
Sugar 1/2 cup
Raisins few
Cashew nuts few
Cardamon Powder 1 tsp
Ghee 1/2 cup to 1/4th cup + 1 tsp + extra if needed for shaping ladoos


Firstly, dry roast the dariya till nice aroma is come, being careful of not allowing change the colour or over roast it. Allow it to cool. 

Secondly, Chop raisins and cashew nuts. Take a pan, add 1 tsp ghee and fry cashew nuts and raisins until golden brown. Now keep ready aside.

Now lets start preparing the ladoo...

Take dariya in a mixer, and grind to fine powder. Transfer it to a plate on one side.

Now grind sugar into fine powder and transfer to the same plate other side. 

Mix dariya powder and sugar powder well. {If needed it can be mixed by sifting it, so that dariya and sugar gets mixed equally, and if any coarse piece of dariya is left will stay out}.

Add fried cashew nuts, raisins and cardamon powder, and mix once. 

Melt Ghee.

Pour it over the dariya mix. After pouring warm ghee, immediately mix all together and start making ladoos. 

Once all ladoos are made, transfer to a air tight jar. 

If it is difficult to shape the ladoos, then add little more warm melted ghee, and keep shaping, as the ladoos will get shaped when its warm only.

You can skip roasting dariya. Roasting give a good extra taste, so I roasted.

Raisins can be avoided.
