Amaranth Anjeer aur Khajoor ke Laddoo

After all that fasting and feasting (aka Navratri and Diwali), I was left with still unused Amaranth flour and lads of dry fruits. I was wondering what to do with all that stuff, when I chanced upon a recipe that used amaranth grains to make laddoos. I though I could replicate the same with amaranth flour. Instead of sugar or jaggery, I opted dates and dried figs as the sweetening agent. The result was a delicious and very nutritional recipe.

Read on -

















Preparation Time - 30 mins

Ingredients -


  • 2 cups amaranth flour (Rajgire ka atta)
  • 1/2 cup chopped dates
  • 1/2 cup chopped figs
  • 3-4 tsp ghee
  • a handful of raisins
  • chopped dry fruits (optional)

Preparation - Heat a heavy bottomed wok. Add the ghee to it followed by the amaranth flour. Roast till it turns a few shades darker and the smell changes. 

Remove from wok and keep aside.

Add the dates and figs to the same wok along with a few teaspoons of water. Once it turns into a thick liquid, add the roasted amaranth flour and raisins.

Mix for 2-3 mins.

Remove and keep aside till it is tolerable to touch. 

Grease your palms. Take small portions and roll into laddoos. 

Allow to cool down completely before storing in a airtight container. Stays good for 2-3 weeks.

Note - These laddoos taste better when consumed after a day.
