Then these cute little almond balls are sure going to appeal to you. No, this is not the first time that I have tried these melt-in-the-mouth delicacies. Tried these on a previous occasion when I had just started doing kitchen experiments, and they exceeded my expectations. But then that wasn't an instant badam ladoo recipe. It was the traditional churning method.

  • it's yummy
  • it's kid-friendly
  • it's paleo
  • it's gluten-free

The instant milk badam ladoo is great for fasting days and equally perfect as a power-packed everyday snack!!!!

Let's get started with the super easy recipe. But before that, I would like to thank chef Rama Krishnan for his OPOS innovation. Yes, OPOS makes it that quick - it's a revolution in the culinary world and RK holds the OPOS trademark.


Almonds Benefits:



  • Help manage blood glucose levels
  • Add dietary fiber and aid in digestion
  • Make a powerful snacking option
  • Are loaded with vitamins & minerals, making them a complete health food



Health benefits of almonds have been a matter of discussion for centuries, with no controversies whatsoever. Eat them raw or toasted; flakes or sliced, slivered or floured or simply turn them into almond milk or almond butter. 

Believe me or not, almond butter makes a great substitute to clarified butter. I have tried an almond butter cake, without adding a single drop of oil or butter and it turned out amazingly delicious.This delicious cake was ready in 2 minutes. yes, this was a mug cake.

You might also want to try almond butter whole wheat cake.

You may also make almond butter kulfi, which is seriously healthylicious and does not use cream or sugar!  Almond butter does the magic here while honey adds subtle sweetness to this seriously addictive kulfi.


Trust me, the almond butter kulfi sans oats makes a delicious navratri recipe.

Almond Benefits


Almonds come with several health benefits. Unlike other types of nuts that are high in bad cholesterol, almonds raise good cholesterol levels. Try this health food and you will fall in love with the recipe!


According to  a study published in the American Dietetic Association Journal, almonds raise vitamin E levels in the red blood cells and plasma. The study also claims that almonds for cholesterol are really beneficial and help in lowering LDL while raising HDL levels. The nuts help improve blood lipid levels and are thus great for the heart functioning. 


Another study published in the Cancer Letters claims that almonds may help reduce colon cancer risk. In fact, eat almonds regularly to boost your body's cancer'fighting properties. Of course, you cannot change your genes, but you certainly can alter the behavior of genes with the type and amount of food you eat.


Though almond benefits outnumber their side effects, if you are allergic to nuts, avoid consuming them.

Ingredients for Instant Milk Badam Ladoo OPOS

1 cup measures 235 ml

1 1/4 cup- almond powder (simply grind almonds to powder to make 1/12 cups) - take 1 cup and 1/4 cup separate
1/2 cup- milk powder (you may skip to make it vegan - no substitute required)
1/4 cup- jaggery powder (more depending on your taste preferences)
1 tbsp- water

How To Make Instant Ladoo With Almonds

Mix 1 cup almond powder and milk powder in a bowl. Use a sifter or sieve to sift the flours. Remove any chunks or big pieces.
Take a 2 or 3-liter pressure cooker. This is standard for all OPOS recipes. Please do not try OPOS recipes without basics.
Add 1 cup water to it.
Take a wide and deep bowl that can fit in the cooker. Add jaggery powder and 1 tbsp of water to the bowl. Place this bowl inside the pressure cooker. I kept a small bowl beneath it. Cover the inner pot with foil or a dish/tray/plate so that boiling water from beneath doesn't enter the bowl and ruin your jaggery syrup.
Pressure cook for 5 whistles.
Release pressure manually.
Be careful and add the powders.
Mix gently and remove on a greased plate or foil.
Make almond balls and roll out the ladoos on the remaining 1/4 cup almond powder.
Enjoy these delectable ladoos for a power-packed snack.
Do not be surprised if kids would ask for more.

Here's my old almond ladoo post:

Eggless Cake Without Raising Agents: A No Baking Powder, No Baking Soda Sponge Cake Recipe

When you are able to bake an eggless cake without raising agents, your happiness knows no bounds, right? This is exactly what I am in for today. What started as an experiment has worked out wonders for me.


I was trying to hone my cake baking skills while learning a few baking basics. Then struck this idea of baking a cake without baking powder or baking soda. A loved one is suffering from histamine sensitivity, and these chemical agents trigger urticaria, which gives me goosebumps. So I decided to go the other way round - baking an eggless cake without raising agents.

You need a light flour here - something that would effectively replace maida/all-purpose flour/refined flour/white flour. I remember one dhaba wala telling me once about how they replace maida sometimes - using a mix of jau and rice flour.

So this is exactly what I needed. This has given me one of the simplest yet tastiest cakes. Please do not change the flours, as I am unsure how any other flour would work here. I will…
