Laddu , the traditional favorite dish of the Indian god Ganesha , is largely unknown in this country. The Ayurvedic specialty is a popular pilgrim food and is of course also suitable for hikes and picnics as a delicious alternative to cookies or muesli bars . Laddu, also known as Indian nougat, is relatively easy to make!
- 200 g chickpea flour
- 150 ml coconut oil
- 50 ml sesame oil
- 150g Lotao Jaggery Kiss Sugar
- 75 g chopped almonds
- 75g figs
- 25g sesame seeds
- 25 g desiccated coconut
- 1 teaspoon lemon peel, ground
- 1 pinch of cinnamon
- 1 pinch of ginger powder
- Roast the sesame oil, coconut oil and chickpea flour in a pot until the mixture begins to smell nutty. Add the almonds and sesame seeds and roast.
- Cut the figs into small pieces and add them together with the spices.
- At the end, mix in the Jaggery Kiss and stir until the sugar has melted. Spread the dough onto a baking tray (cover with baking paper if necessary), press firmly and sprinkle with coconut flakes. Allow to dry and cut into pieces (e.g. in the form of small muesli bars).
