MOTICHOOR LADOO |EASY DIWALI SWEET RECIPES| MOTICHUR LADDU RECIPE


Moti choor- ladooMotichoor ladoo is one among my favorite sweet and i wanted to try this for a long time. I have posted few ladoo recipes last year . Check out my Boondi ladoo , Besan ladoo, Rava ladoo. Two weeks back we went to Malaysia and i wanted to make a sweet and a savory for my friends and my mama’s family whom i have planned to visit there. I decided on the South Indian Madras mixture and thought of making Mysore pak. Though i made both some how i wanted to make another sweet and suddenly this Motichoor ladoo came to mind and i had this recipe of Motichoor ladoo in a popular cookbook which i wanted to try for a long time. It just turned out perfect and i could finish the entire process in an hour. I can highly recommend to try out this motichoor ladoo for this diwali and trust me it will turn out awesome. Check out my post on Sugar syrup consistency. Check my full diwali collection of  recipes  . Also check out my Boondi ladoo with Khoya.

Motichoor-ladoo
Preparation time : 20 Minutes.  Cooking time: 45 minutes Makes: 22 ladoos
INGREDIENTS
BESAN | KADALAI MAAVU 1 AND 1/2 CUP
RAVA | SEMOLINA 1 AND 1/2 TBLSP
BAKING SODA A PINCH
SUGAR 1 AND 1/4 CUP
ORANGE FOOD COLOUR 2 PINCHES
SAFFRON FEW STRANDS
ALMONDS SLICED 1 TBLSP
ROSE WATER 1 TSP
CARDAMOM POWDER A PINCH


motichoor-ladoo
METHOD:
  • In a wide bowl add the besan, rava (if not fine pulse it once in the mixer) a pinch of orange food colour and baking soda. Add water to this and make this into a smooth batter like the dosa batter consistency without any lumps.
motichoor- ladoo
  • Heat oil in a wide pan for deep frying. Lets start preparing boondis now.
  • You need 2 perforated ladle for making boondi. The ladle with small holes to make boondi and another one to take out the boondis from oil.
  • Pour a ladle of batter to the perforated ladle ,keeping the ladle on the top of the oil and  let the boondis falls into the oil.
motichoor- ladoo
  • Let the boondis cook and don’t allow them to cook till crispy. Just take it out when they are done and yet soft. Drain the excess oil in a tissue. Repeat this for the rest of the batter.
  • Since we are going to grind the boondi in the last step, do not panic even if you get the tails in making boondis. Check out my boondi ladoo post for a detailed notes of how to make boondi without getting the tail.
  • In a pan add sugar and a pinch of orange colour.
motichoor ladoo 2
  •  Add 1 and 1/2 cup of water and bring it to a boil.
  • Heat till the sugar gets dissolved stirring in between.
  • Once sugar gets dissolved stop stirring and boil till this reach one string consistency.
  • Check for 1 string consistency. If you take the sugar syrup in your thumb finger and index finger it should form one string consistency.
  • Switch off the flame and add cardamom powder and  mix well.
  • Keep it aside.

  • Just heat the sugar syrup for few seconds till it become warm. Switch off the flame and add the boondis to it and mix evenly.
  • Boil 2 tblsp of  water in a sauce pan.  Transfer the boondis coated with sugar syrup ( the boondis would have observed the syrup and will be firm only) to a mixier. Let the water nicely boil.
  • Add the hot water to this and pulse them in a mixer. Transfer it to a plate. Sprinkle the rose water and add the chopped almonds.
motichoor ladoo 6
  • Start making ladoos. This mixture may be little moist, but don’t worry. After few minutes it will be firm .
  • This motichoor ladoos are the easiest one which you can try at home and win a big applause from all the friends and relatives . 
motichoor- ladooNOTES:
  • You can add melon seeds this instead of almonds.
  • I added everest milk masala on the top while serving.
  • This ladoo stays well for 3 to 4 days in the refrigerator.
  • Alternatively you can grind one portion of the boondi and keep the other portion as it is to get nice look of the ladoos.
  • Do not over grind, just one pulse is enough, else will look like besan ladoo.

  34. Hi
    Thanks for posting the recipe..can you tell me if I decide not to grind the boondis & just add rose water and nuts directly, would it impact the taste? Also I m looking to freeze the laddoos for an event..how long can I freeze these laddoos? Is 3 months ok? Any tips on freezing and thawing for optimal freshness before serving? Thank you so much

    1. Thanks for the message. If you don't grind the ladoos it won't affect the taste for sure. But regarding freeezing the ladoos i am clueless as i never attempted freezing foods.Sorry about that

    2. Hi jeyashri , tried ur recipe. Great taste. How long can it be kept outside without refrigeration? And mine was very moist. Any tips? How long should the boondis be in the sugar syrup?

      Delete
    3. You can keep it outside for a day or 2. After that depending on the weather conditions it will spoil soon. After a day you can put it back in the refrigerator. If it is too moist, you can put them in the refrigerator for 2 hours. It will be firm. The boondis need to be in the syrup for just 2 minutes. Once the syrup gets absorbed you can takeout

  36. Hi jey
    If we want to add ghee to these ladoos when should we add?

    1. You can grease your hands with little ghee while making the ladoo balls

  37. Hi, am planning to make this. But when I think of this one thread consistency, I am very scared of it as many times I have gone wrong in that "padham". Can you tell me how many minutes it would take for that "padham" after the sugar is completely dissolved? If not exactly, at least the probable time??

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi, thanks for the messgae. Do not worry about the one string consistency. It is very easy and you could easily make it out. Approximately in 5 to 7 minutes of time it will come. Depends on the flame u keep the syrup.

      Delete
  38. Hi jaya akka,
    i tried this laddo once but it was a bit soggy and i think the sugar syrup was too much but by mistake i added all the sugar syrup , wt i should do if the laddo becomes soggy nd sugar syrup is more?????

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. if you follow this measurement, you will go wrong for sure. In case if the texture of the besan is different , you may get less boondis, in that case just make some more boondis and add to this. Always check for one string consistency of the syrup. Else it will be soggy

      Delete
    2. Oh thank u sooooooo much :)

  42. Hi jeyashri, I have been following your blog for sometime and ladoo i made was awesome and i got it perfectly. I tried ladoo long before and we had it as only boondi could not shape it properly.
