Wheat Ladoo / Godi Unde for Ugadi


HAPPY UGADI TO ALL MY FRIENDS

Wheat Ladoo known as Godi Unde - Godi meaning wheat and Unde meaning ladoo in Kannada is basically a ladoo that is made during festivals and occasions. So I decided to make it for this Ugadi that falls on 8th April this year. 

Ugadi is celebrated as the New Year in Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, and Konkan.  Its basically the First Day of the Chaitra Month. 

Celebrating the New Year Day, I have decided to make this wheat ladoo / godi unde which is easy, healthy and a soft ladoo that melts in the mouth.

Ingredients:
Wheat Flour 1 cup
Powdered Sugar 3/4th cup 
Ghee 1/2 to 3/4th cup
Cardamom Powder 1 tsp
Raisins few

Method:
In a non stick pan, heat 2 tbsp of ghee. Once heated add raisins and fry until they are a bit brown. Remove and keep it aside.

Now in the same ghee add wheat flour and saute / roast until a nice aroma comes and the flour turns brown. This will take around 10 minutes.

Now switch the flame off and add powdered sugar, fried raisins and cardamon powder and mix well. Keep it aside for few minutes until its warm.

Now its time to roll the ladoos....
Note: This ladoo tends to break when touched, so rolling can be a bit of a task, so when needed add the remaining ghee and keep rolling.  


Roll the full mixture into ladoos.


Garnish and offer as prasad.



Store in a air tight container.

I have made this post in relation to being part of Ugadi Special event hosted by Jayashree Trao http://www.evergreendishes.com/
