Kashuvandi Unda (Cashew Nut Ladu)


Uncooked rice – 1 Cup
Melted Jaggery – 4 Table spoons
Grated Coconut – 3 Table spoons
Cashew nut –  2 Table Spoons
Cardamom – 3 nos
Cumin seeds (Small Jeera) – ½ teaspoon


Take brown rice in a container, wash it thoroughly till the water gets clean, strain all the water, if possible sun dry.  I haven’t dried it. So it takes a little longer.  Put the rice in a frying pan and roast without oil till all the rice splutters as shown in picture.  Remove from fire and leave it to cool. Roast the cashew nut with little ghee or without, I roasted it without ghee today. Grind the rice and make it into a smooth powder, then add coconut, skinned cardamom seeds, cumin seeds, 1 1/2 spoon cashew nuts and Jaggery grind well and empty the contents into a dish.

Mix well and make balls or any shape you like, decorate with bits of cashew nuts.  This is a very fast and tasty snack for tea which your family and guests will surely enjoy.

My grandma was using homemade organic rice so she wouldn’t wash it to preserve the vitamins.  But now since it’s brought from elsewhere we have to make sure it is well cleaned.  Today is the first time I measured and used all the ingredients to make these ladoo’s otherwise I used to be too lazy, so would do guess work  and vow I feel proud of myself, it turned out to be very delicious nearly reaching the taste of the once my Grandma used to make. I simply enjoyed them and preserved some for tomorrow.  All must try and make this lovey ladoos and enjoy instead of going for bakery items, it’s very easy to make and healthy too.
