Ingredients used for making flax seed almond ladoo

Flax seeds: Roasting the flax seeds before making powder gives nice aroma and removes raw taste. For this recipe I’m using brown flax seeds but any flax seeds works just fine.

Almonds: Whole almonds are roasted and then made into powder. For full nutrition absorption, try soaked and sun dried almonds which are available in market or you can make easily at home.

Sesame seeds: When sesame seeds are roasted and pulverized, they absorb a lot better. Most of the South Indian dishes add sesame powder to dishes for enhancing the flavors.

Jaggery: Using a good quality organic jaggery adds a ton of health benefits. Avoid jaggery which contains sulphur on label.

Cardamom powder: It enhances the dish and adds flavor to sweet dishes.

How to make flax seed almond ladoo

  1. Dry roast sesame seeds, flax seeds, almonds, in a pan. They release nice aroma and slightly change color.
  2. Make almond powder. Don’t over grind, other wise nuts start to release oil and become paste.
  3. Next grind sesame seeds until coarse, then add flax seeds to coarse sesame powder. Grind until it becomes a fine powder.
  4. Then add jaggery powder to the step 3 mixture and grind it for few times. When you notice the mixture is releasing oil, stop grinding at this stage.
  5. Add almond powder, sesame flaxseeds mixture, cardamon powder to a mixing bowl and mix well.
  6. Optional: Add a little bit of warm ghee to the mixture and start rolling them into balls. Add ghee only if needed.
  7. You can add any toppings(cashews, pistachios) if you like to at this point.
  8. Store them in a container for a week. Will not recommend to store them more than a week.
