Laddu or laddoo is an Indian sweet made of varieties of flour, semolina, ghee, dry fruit, nuts sweetened with sugar/jaggery and shaped into balls.
Here is my version of bread laddu using brown sugar and melted butter. The toasted bread is then shredded and coarsely ground. You can use any type of bread available at your place. It is fast and easy to prepare but more important to prevent them to disappear right after is is laid on your table. Such a delight on every bite!
2 C coarse bread crumbs
1/2 - 3/4 C brown sugar
6 TB melted butter/ ghee
1/4 C toasted nuts (cashew, almond, peanut)
3-4 TB milk
1/4 tsp ground cardamom
Toast the bread, break into small pieces and grind coarsely.
Place bread crumbs, sugar, nuts and cardamom into a mixing bowl. Stir well.
Mix in butter and milk until you can shape them into ball. Roll them into small balls.
Keep chilled until ready to serve. .
