Childhood memories have a magical way of transporting us back to a time when life was simpler and filled with joy. One particular chapter of my early years stands out vividly, a period when I spent two beautiful years in a town with my grandparents.
The town was a stark contrast to the bustling city life I was accustomed to. Here, people were deeply grounded and connected, fostering a sense of love.
The heart of this town experience was undoubtedly my grandmother's kitchen. It was a place where traditions came alive, and the aroma of spices and sweets lingered in the air. Festivals were synonymous with hours spent in the kitchen.
Among the many delights that emerged from Grandma's kitchen, ragi ladoos held a special place in my heart. Here is the recipe below-
Grandma visited us recently, I asked her to make the ladoos again. Here is the recipe-
3 cups Ragi powder
1 tbsp Ghee
1 cup Jaggery (syrup)
Handful of Almonds (optional)
- Roast Ragi: Heat 1 tbsp ghee in a pan. Add 3 cups Ragi powder; stir until golden brown.
- Jaggery Syrup: Melt 1 cup jaggery to make a sticky syrup.
- Combine and Shape: Mix ragi with jaggery syrup. Add almonds and shape into round ladoos.
- Set and Serve: Allow to cool, then serve these nostalgic treats!
Serve in bamboo round basket and enjoy!
Years passed, and life took me back to the city, but the memories remained etched in my mind. The aroma of ragi ladoos still brings back the laughter, the festivals, and the love that defined those precious years in the town with my grandparents.
