Aate Ke Laddu

Aate Ke Ladoo are just loved in my family, whenever visiting grand parents my son always has on his list having these everyday. These are absolutely delectable and a full plate just disappears during the day. As the name suggests these are made with wheat flour or atta mixed with powdered sugar (boora). This recipe has been carried in the family for few known generations and I share this with you today so you too can enjoy these delicious ladoo’s. These are especially good to eat during the winter season as these are rich with ghee and dry fruits and the addition of sonth powder makes them perfect for the cold weather. These can also be served as dessert or as a snack after evening tea or coffee or even in breakfast. So let’s see how to make these with this Aate Ke Ladoo Recipe.
