Javas Ladoo | How to make Flax Seed Ladoo

Javas Ladoo - A to Z Maharashtrian Sweets, 

When I did Alsi Ladoo for A, I mentioned that another similar ladoo is coming up. Here’s the one that I referred that day. Flaxseed is called Javas/ Alsi in Marathi, so I wanted to make the best use of this seed to cover both the alphabets. 

So I looked out for a recipe that’s different from the one I already made. I adapted this ladoo from here. The recipe is totally different, though its another ladoo. I also mentioned that I made about 5 different sweets the day I made these. Out of that two were ladoos with the same main ingredient.

While the taste was different, looks wise it was similar and I had confusion on plating it too. The other preps that I did was to make note of the recipes that called for similar ingredients, like mawa/khova. I made khova at home keeping in mind all the dishes that I would be making. So these were prepared on the same day so as to use up the homemade khova.

Flaxseeds  are very rich in omega 3 fatty acids and dietary fibers. This ladoo that I made is a traditional ladoo recipe made with flax seeds, black sesame, and poppy seeds. Since black sesame seeds, and poppy seeds are a very good source of minerals as well, these ladoo are highly nutritious.

Next add a tsp of ghee, roast the gond till it blooms and puffs up. Remove and allow to cool down. Grind to a powder once it cools down

Likewise, chop and roast the nuts in ghee.
