Quinoa Ladoo

Quinoa is one of the worlds popular health foods. Quinoa is Gluten free, high in protein and contains all 9 essential amino fluids. High in fiber, iron and  calcium. As it is high in protein, it can both increase metabolism and reduce appetite. Today I am here to show you how to prepare ladoo with this healthy seeds.

This recipe is adapted from here, only change I made was, I replaced sugar with jaggery to make it more healthier. Here goes the simple and delicious Quinoa ladoo.........


Quinoa 1 cup
Jaggery 1/2 cup
Butter / ghee 2 spoons
Milk 1/4 cup
Water 1 spoon


Wash quinoa thoroughly, drain water.
Spread the quinoa on a dry kitchen cloth and let dry for a day.
Now grind the quinoa, just like sooji / semolina.
Heat butter in a non stick pan and add grounded  quinoa and roast on low flame.
Keep stirring to roast evenly.
In a separate sauce pan add jaggery and water.
Let the jaggery melt completely , filer out all the impurities and add to the roasting quinoa.
Warm the milk separately and add to qunioa mixture.

Mix well to form a nice dough.
Remove from heat and let cool for sometime.
Now apply ghee or butter to your palms and make round ladoo's with the dough.

Good one, Sushma. Did it have the typical after taste ? My idea is that if quinoa is roasted, the smell should disappear. Was that your observation too?
