Peanut Ladoo

I usually make this during navratri... they can be made on any occasion really and they are so easy to make...


1 1/2 cup peanut butter (crunchy)
3/4 cup icing Sugar (can put 1 cup if you want more sweet)
1 cup khoya (grated finely)
1/2 cup dessicated coconut
5 tbsp ghee (enough to moisten the peanut mixture)

Add all the ingredients (ghee, peanut butter, sugar, coconut and khoya) in a wok on medium flame and combine everthing togethor until mixed well and sugar has melted. The mixture should not get runny. When it cools down a bit but still very warm, make round balls.

Can decorate with silver vark, or a little bit of coconut or have just like that.

Soul Food

Cooking has a therapeutic effect on me. When I'm tired, bored, frustrated or wanting to do something creative, I cook. Lucky hubby i hear you say, tabhi tho ....kha kha ke mote hote jaa rahe hai....!!

I attribute my cooking skills to my mum, although its my dad whose brought in the fine tuning and perfectioned touch to my recipes. And hubby dear, he's responsible for the quality and testing (mostly tasting) contribution to the food i make. I know how to bring him home early from office... I sms to him..."babe...shud I make aalo roti ya makki ki roti tonite???" "..makki ki for dinner....start making aalo ki coming early for tea...." he replies..

Enjoy, try out the recipes and lemme know if u liked them....
