Ingredients (for 14-15 Laddus)
Peeled Roasted Peanuts 1.5 cups
Crushed Jaggery ½ to ¾ cup
Cardamom (Eliachy) Powder ½ teaspoon
Pure Ghee (Clarified Butter) 1.5 tablespoon
1. Add Peeled roasted peanuts and crushed jaggery in a grinder and pulse it 2-3 times till peanuts are crushed. Do not over grind. Amount of Jaggery depends on the desired sweetness of Laddus. If you want Laddus to be lightly sweet, then add only ½ cup Jaggery; else add ¾ cup jaggery.
2. Take out the mixture in a plate
3. Add Cardamom (Eliachy) powder, Ghee and mix using hands. Mixture will be moist enough for you to roll laddus. If not, you can add some more ghee.
4. Make bite size laddus.

The taste of these laddus will depend on how well the peanuts are roasted. Peanuts should be light brown when you roast them.
