Sugarless Poha Ladoo: A Quick High Fiber Sweet Recipe


Poha ladoo? Well, the idea does not belong to me. But this one comes from a dear friend, Neelam Avasthy, who had shared this poha ladoo recipe in my group "Healthy Recipes by Homemakers" We are a Facebook platform for sharing healthy recipes only. The group does not entertain recipes that use unhealthy ingredients, so we keep brainstorming and coming up with innovative ideas to make food healthy and delicious. Perhaps this high fiber poha ladoo recipe is such an innovation from Neelam ji.

In the words of Neelam herself,  these ladoos are"low calorie but healthy treat for all. This sweet dish will be liked by everyone at home, light n just melting in mouth. Try it friends n don't forget to give me feedback plz."

Did I say she received feedback from all corners. Everybody simply fell in love with this simple recipe. Neelam Avasthy is a masterchef in herself. An amazing chef and a beautiful soul, she is simply one of my favorite girls in the food world.

I have altered the recipe a little to include my favorite fiber ingredient, oatmeal.

Poha/Rice Flakes

If you are looking for a low calorie sweet, then this is not the right recipe for you.
But it surely is a fiber-packed recipe that gives you amazing flavors and energy boost.
Made of rice grain, poha or flattened rice is a healthy addition to your diet plans. It is even a healthier snacking choice for diabetics. But of course, this poha ladoo recipe is not diabetes-friendly. I have shared a few diabetes-friendly recipes on this blog. Do give them a try. One of my favorite ones is baked poha cutlet.

Poha is the world's first fast food.


Easy to digest, flattened rice is a good diet food for people with stomach problems.
Being a high carb and high-calorie food, poha or rice flakes keep you feeling full for longer.
It is a gluten-free food ingredient - best for people with gluten allergy.


Let's come back to the high fiber sweet recipe:

Poha Ladoo Recipe Ingredients

POHA -1 cup (rice flakes)
Jaggery powder -2 tbsp (gur)
Ghee/butter/oil -1 tbsp
Elaichi powder -1/2 tsp
Roasted Oats-2 tbsp (optional)
Roasted Dry fruits of your choice (I have used roasted almonds, walnuts, and pistachios)

How to make sugarfree ladoo with poha

  • Dry roast poha on low flame until the color changes to light brown.
  • Dry roast oats for a couple of minutes. No need to brown them.
  • Dry roast nuts.
  • Turn off the flame. 
  • Allow the rice flakes to cool down before grinding them in the processor along with jaggery powder and roasted nuts.
  • Add cardamom or elaichi powder to the poha mix.
  • Next add ghee/oil along with dry fruits.
  • Run the mixer again. You may allow them to sit on the counter for 10 mts or bind them immediately.
  • Give the shape of high fiber ladoos and enjoy this healthylicious treat for your sweet tooth.
  • Do give this high fiber sweet recipe a try.
The high fiber sweet made from poha is a perfect way to pamper your sweet tooth. With just 1 tbsp of ghee and no sugar, the power-packed recipe uses a power-boosting pack of healthy nuts to give you a healthylicious snack to munch on. Are you ready to indulge in a healthy nutritious sweet recipe that is high in calories as well

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…

Instant Aam Papad (Sada) With Jaggery: Sweet & Tangy Mango Slices

Aam papad has been a hot favorite since childhood. I do not remember how many times I have enjoyed these sweet & tangy mango sheets, though no one from my mom's side ever tried making them at home. After marriage, my mother in law, who is an awesome cook, made these savory & sweet mango pulp slices for me. I must tell that she makes the best mango pickle in the world - which is both sweet & sour. She made two buckets full for me after she found that I love aam achaar.

Who does not like sweet and tangy mango leather? Our generation has grown up relishing aam papad- wonder what all the present generation is missing out on! So this instant aam sada or papad recipe was born after my dear friend Poonam Bachhav had shared her aam papad post. Her post was the ultimate trigger for me to come up with my own instant Odia version. Poonam is the real Annapurna. I love the way she picks healthy ingredients to cook up deliciousness in the kitchen. Poonam blogs at Poonam Bachaav dot…
