This laddoo recipe works great as an anytime snack or a post-meal substitute for
something sweet. The protein content in this recipe helps fulfil a part of the body’s daily
protein requirement.

heart. Add to that, nuts which are rich in essential fats which help combat
cardiovascular diseases.

Preparation Time: 5 mins | Cooking Time: 15 mins
Ingredients (Makes 15 laddoos)
¾ cup urad (black gram) dal
1/3 cup oats
¼ cup cashew nuts
¼ cup almonds
½ cup ragi (finger millets) flour
100 grams sugar-free
25 ml Amul Lite butter
5 cardamom pods (elaichi)
30 gm chocolate Obesigo protein powder
Instructions
1. Rinse the urad dal until the water comes out clean. Wash very quickly and drain
out the water immediately.
2. Use a clean, dry cloth to pat the dal dry. Try to get rid off as much of the moisture
as possible. Keep under the ceiling fan or in sunlight for 15-20 minutes to further
dry it out.
3. Roast the cashew nuts and almonds for 2-3 minutes and set aside.
4. Dry roast the oats for 2 minutes and keep aside.
5. Roast the urad dal until it turns a light brown colour and smells fragrant. It should
take about 10-15 minutes.
6. Grind all the roasted ingredients one by one, separately and keep aside.
7. Melt 2-3 tablespoons of Amul Lite butter in a pan.
8. Add the ragi flour and sauté for 2-3 minutes until the raw flavour disappears.
9. Add oats powder, cashew nuts & almond powder, black gram powder and Sugar-
Free.
10. Combine everything well together and heat on low for 2-3 minutes.
11. Turn off the heat and transfer the mixture into a bowl.
12. Take 2-3 tablespoon of melted Amul Lite butter and pour in a small part of the
mixture. Mix that part well.

13. Take a fistful of the mixture and shape into a laddoo, packing tightly.

14. Store in an airtight container.
