 Sorghum (Jowar) Laddoo 

If we have to name a popular Indian sweet dish, laddoo will surely be one of the most common answers! These sweet, bite-sized roundels are easy to make and an all-time hit across ages. All you need to do is throw in some ingredients together, bind them together with some sweetening agent and ghee and make small balls out of it.

Laddoos are made from different flours, millets, fruits and even vegetables and everything tastes just equally delicious. This recipe of laddoo uses a millet as the key ingredient – sorghum or jowar flakes. And I am using jaggery to sweeten them. So that does make it a healthier sweet that you indulge with lesser guilt, especially during the festival time..:)
