peanut ladoo recipepeanut ladoo recipe | groundnut laddu | shengdana ladoo | shenga unde with step by step photo and video recipe. peanuts or groundnuts are heavily used in indian cuisine, particularly in western india. it is often used to make curries, chutney or even in some deep fried snack recipes. but this is a unique peanut ladoo recipe made with just 2 main ingredients, i.e groundnuts and melted jaggery.

this recipe of groundnut laddu is very similar to my previously shared peanut chikki recipe, in terms of taste and flavour. but has a striking difference with respect to texture and appearance. basically, in the chikki recipe, the jaggery is melted and brought 1 string consistency, which gives a glossy finishing to chikki recipe. in addition, it also gives a brittle and crisp texture to the chikki. however, in this peanut ladoo recipe, the jaggery is just melted and mixed with roughly crushed peanuts. later it is shaped to round balls which can be served as laddu or perhaps as protein balls.

furthermore, some easy and important tips and suggestions for a perfect peanut ladoo recipe. firstly, the recipe can be made by finely grounding the peanuts to a fine powder and later shaping like besan ladoo. in this recipe, i have coarsely crushed it and i personally like it this way. secondly, while shaping these ladoo, it may lose its heat and the peanut and jaaggery mixture may turn hard. you may tackle it by reheating the mixture in the microwave for 1 minute followed by shaping again. lastly, these ladoo’s can be easily stored for 1-2 weeks if preserved in an airtight container boxes.
