Atta Pinni/Ladoo: Indian Sweets

atta pinni
Atta pinni or ladoo are a specialty of Punjab.

I remember our parents and grandparents preparing these delicious delicacies during winters when we were young. We would relish this healthy sweet like anything. We love atta pinnis even today, but have made little alterations to the recipe to make it with less amount of ghee, which is a healthier option but isn't great for your heart.



This click of atta pinni was taken by my sis-in-law and this is her recipe.

Indian Sweet Ingredients

1 cup- wheat flour
2 tbsp- ghee (clarified butter)
1/2 cup- khoya or paneer
1 tbsp - rice flour or corn flour or maida
2 tbsp-sugar (as per taste) 
green cardamom/elaichi
Almonds or any other nuts
2 tbsp - milk

Process
  1. Take milk in a pan and add rice flour/cornflour.
