Millet Poha Ladoo is a super yummy and mindful snack prepared with the Millet Flakes. It is so easy and quick can be best called as Instant Ladoo
Millet is a super food which is rich in fiber and hence its been widely consumed these days.
I usually try to use a lot of Millet in our daily foods from snack to the regular meal.
I have tried many interesting recipes with Millet Flakes .This recipe is one such find and we all loved it.
We have been using Millets regularly in our diet and i like them equally as rice.
What is Millet Flakes:
Millets Flakes are the flatten and beaten version of the Millets. Similar to the Poha for Rice , Millets Flakes are for Millet.
Can we Replace Sugar with Jaggery for the Ladoo:
A big yes , Instead of sugar we can use other sweetners. Jaggery ,Country sugar or even Palm Jaggery.
Why my Ladoo do not hold Shape:
If the Millets are coarse and not a fine powder the ladoo will not hold shape.
If we replace or reduce the amount of gheethat needs to be added the Ladoo will not hold shape.
These are the most common mistakes that might happen but we have a solution for everything when making Ladoos.
What if i add more ghee to the Ladoo:
We can use more powdered millet flakes , so that the ladoo becomes sturdy .Otherwise the Ladoo can be refrigerated ,so the ladoo becomes sturdy.
