Servings: 12 ladoos


  • 1 cup milk powder
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup + 1 tablespoon ghee
  • 2 cardamom
  • 10 cashews
  • 1 tablespoon raisin


  • Heat 2 tablespoon ghee, roast cashew nuts until golden and crisp, in medium flame. Set aside.
  • Fry raisins until they bloat and set aside.
  • Powder sugar with cardamom until it is super fine as talc.
  • Put the roasted cashew in ziploc and crush it roughly using a rolling pin gently.
  • In a mixing bowl, take milk powder, powdered sugar, crushed nuts, raisin and melted ghee.
  • Mix well and shape the mixture to ladoos. It takes a while to press and form the shape, so press firmly for laddu holding shape. Use gloves for ease of work and faster results.



  • Add ¼ cup ghee first (let it be warm) and if needed add one more tablespoon of ghee.
  • Initially the milk powder tends to stick to hands and it will take a while for holding its shape. Keep pressing firmly for the shape to hold.
