We are starting the BM 29th Edition today and I am going to blog about sweet treats for Kids this week. When I talk about sweets, my kids are not so keen into sweets, other than chocolate treats and cakes. And if at all they eat, it's only sweets that we make at home. Nothing of the store bought sweets for them, other than Sonpadi.
So I know I will end up making cakes and chocolates when I decided to do this theme. However we were surprised when Konda loved this laddo that Amma made for us. It's a quick fix and something I end up doing with these whole grains. Makes a healthy snack as well.

Samba Broken Wheat Laddoo
Samba Broken Wheat - 1 cup
Sugar - 1 cup
Fresh Coconut - 1/2 cup
Ghee as required
Nuts for garnish
How to make the Laddo
Fry the wheat till it turns colour slightly. Roast the nuts and keep it aside.
Cool and powder it fine. Powder the sugar separately and take both wheat powder along with sugar, coconut, nuts in a bowl. Add melted ghee and press out balls. If the laddos don't hold it's shape, sprinkle hot milk over the mix and quickly shape out laddoos.
Frying can be done without ghee. If you want you can add a tsp and fry.
Since milk is added, take care to store it properly.
