javarisi ladoo
  1. Always powder the sago finely. Generally sago tends to powder nicely once they are roasted well.
  2. If the flour is coarse, ladoos will not come out good also takes a lot of ghee while making.
  3. Depends on the texture of the sago the quantity of ghee may slightly vary.
  4. I added 2 tblsp of sugar and i felt it is slightly more. But if you are sweet lovers then it will be perfectly fine.
  5. This ladoo stays good for 3-4 days in room temperature. Always handle with clean hands.
  6. You can add finely grated fresh coconut while making the ladoo. Roast the coconut nicely and then add to the flour. If the coconut scrapings are bit big, pulse it once in a mixie and add.
