Semiya Laddu
A virtual treat with Semiya Laddu, Sugar cane, and Ugadi Pacchadi
Sri Nanadana Nama Samvatsara Subhaakankshalu!!Ugadi Greetings to All!! 

The second week of this edition of Blogging Marathon is here and you shall see me blog under three different themes. Festival Food - Quick and Easy Mithai, Vegan Friendly Dishes and Eggless Baking with Fruits and Nuts.

This recipe qualifies under the first category. My sister's mother-in-law is the source of this recipe which is sure to delight your senses. So here is the recipe for the quick and easy sweet for Day 1 week 2 of BM#14.

Ingredients - 

Semiya 1/2 cup
Sugar 1/4 cup (plus 2 Tbsp more if preferred)(I used brown sugar)
Cashews, broken 1 Tbsp
Almonds, chopped 2 Tbsp
Ghee/Clarified Butter 1 tsp
Milk 2 tsp

Semiya Laddu

Method Of Preparation -

In a heated wok, add 1/2 tsp of ghee and fry semiya (vermicelli) until golden brown. Remove onto a plate to cool and set aside.

Add a few drops of ghee in the same heated wok/kadai and fry the chopped nuts and set aside.

Powder the roasted semiya, mix in the fried nuts and sugar. 

In the same heated wok/kadai, add the remaining ghee and roast the above mixture for a minute.

Remove from fire and sprinkle 2 tsp of milk and mix well. The sugar will start to melt and the mixture will come together as a single mass. 

Pinch bite sized mixture and roll into laddus (small balls) when it is safe to handle with your hands.

Set aside for a few minutes to set and is ready to enjoy!
