Old-Chappatti Laddoos

Here is a recipe I invented ( using old chappatti is  my friend Rucha’s idea but i am responssible for mixing up the other interesting ingredients).


1. Two old chapattis (one day old)

2. One teaspoon ghee

3. One table spoon jaggery ( if u have a sweet tooth, more)

4. 10 almonds

5. 10 walnuts

6. Half a handful of lightly roasted groundnuts

7. Half a teaspoon of flax seeds, lightly roasted (this is a dicey ingredient, if you make for children, leave this out….children may not like it)

Tear the chapattis into small pieces and put them in to the blender along with the other ingredients. Blend until a thick paste is formed. With your hands make small laddoos.You can experiment with other ingredients as well. i also add a teaspoon of cinnamon powder.experiments in the kitchen

Makes for a great prebreakfast snack…kids will love this and its sooper healthy. Plus its about making use of left over chapattis. I love it.

Caution: don’t eat all of it … serves 2 or 3 people….its too heavy for one person.
