Ingredients required for making puffed rice ladoo
Puffed rice (Laai) - 3 cup or 80 grams
Jaggery - 1 cup or 260 gram (Finely broken into pieces)
Ghee - 1 tsp

How to make uffed Rice Laddu
To make murmura ladoo, first we’ll roast the puffed rice on medium flame and take out the rice in a separate bowl, puffed rice will become crispy.
Heat a pan and add ghee to it, cook it on medium or low flame, once the ghee is melted, add jaggery. Stir constantly till the jaggery melts completely. 
Once the jaggery is melted add puffed rice to it and cook on low flame. Keep stirring for sometime so that everything is thoroughly mixed. Turn off the flame. Remove the wok from the stove.
Keep the mixture aside and let it cool. Take some water in a bowl. Apply a little water on your hands. Pick up the mixture and roll it in a ball. Before making each ladoo, wet your hands.
Make all the laddus similarly. Put them in a plate.
Puffed rice ladoo are now ready to be served, this laddu is very tasty, keep the laddu in open for 3-4 hours, this will help it set. Now store the laddu in a container and enjoy eating for upto 2-3 months. 

Suggestions :
Make sure the jaggery is of good quality and there is no dirt in it. The ratio of jaggery and puffed rice should be appropriate.
Puffed rice laddu are made best only when the mixture of jaggery and puffed rice is a little warm.

Can we use the soaked water for millets? Does millet need to be soaked?

Do millets contain anti-nutrients? Yes, they do. In fact, all whole grains, including oats, contain phytates, which bind to minerals and make their absorption difficult for the body.  Soaking is the first step toward reducing anti-nutrients from millets. Soak for at least 6-8 hours to make digestion easier. Discard the soaked water and then proceed to the next step of cooking.

Making Dahi Without Starter | बिना जामन के दही | How to Make Curd at Home Without Curd

Ever imagines how to make curd without curd (with almonds) बिना जामन के दही ? Well, I am sure such use of almonds as a curd starter is nowhere in your thoughts, right? Perhaps we are not used to thinking on these lines until it happens incidentally and you want to share your experiment with others. I am happy to say that I have experimented with making curd without starter and it gives me creamy and sweet curd. बिना जामन के दही | How to Make Curd at Home Without Curd A Little About my Curd Love Give me a bowl of rich, creamy curd and I do not need anything else on my dining table.

My parents have inculcated in me good eating habits - home food is the best, they would day, preach and practice. This has become ingrained in my thoughts. I detest outside food, and yes, I dub it as market junk. One reason I love all homemade stuff - mommade food is the best. But w

How To Make Jowar Roti Without Breaking With Rolling Pin at Home [Sorghum Flour Recipes\Benefits]

Is Jowar good for weight loss? Is Jowar better than wheat? Is Jowar good in summer? Is Jowar good for thyroid? Is Jowar better than Bajra? Can Jowar be eaten everyday? Well, these are some of the most common questions people ask about sorghum flour. Well, sorghum benefits health in more ways than one. First, if you are wondering how to make jowar roti without breaking with a rolling pin at home, let's dig into it and see how to do that easily. The method I follow for making soft, fluffy jowar rotis came up in my mind after my successful trial of ragi jowar chocos at home. I was making sorghum flour chapati earlier as well.

I am happy to share it with you all.  Jowar is heat or cold  Jowar or sorghum has a cold potency so that means you can enjoy it during summers as a coolant. I won't mind enjoying jowar or sorghum flour recipes during winters too because
