  • Microwave
  • Measuring cups and spoons
  • Spatula


  • ½ cup Sprouted Ragi flour you can also use normal ragi flour or popped ragi flour
  • ½ cup organic jaggery powder I used dhatu organic jaggery powder
  • ¼ cup desiccated coconut
  • 4 pods cardamom
  • 1 no clove
  • ½ cup ghee, melted you might not need all of it.
  • 4 tablespoon almonds and cashews, chopped


  • Take ragi flour, coconut and 1 tablespoon ghee in a microwave safe bowl. Mix the ghee into the flour with your hands. Microwave the flour mix for 1 minute and 30 seconds.
  • Remove the bowl from the microwave, using a spatula, mix the flour nicely. do not use your hands, the flour mix will be hot. The ghee would have clumped with the flour. So, mix it nicely with the spatula.
  • Microwave the flour mix for another minute. By this time, you should smell the nice aroma of toasted flour. If you still smell raw flour, then you can microwave again for 30 more seconds.
  • To this flour mix, add jaggery and chopped nuts and mix well.
  • To this mix, now slowly add 1-2 teaspoon of ghee at a time and shape them into balls. I made around 13-14 ladoos. The number of ladoos depend on the size of ladoo.
  • Store the ladoo in an air-tight container. They stay well on the counter for a week.
