Ghee Milk Solids Laddoo | Nei Urundai | Leftover Recipes

When amma makes ghee, she usually ditches the milk solids that settle down after the heating part. We usually make ghee from small amounts of butter and so it didn't matter. But this time when I made ghee, I used a one pound butter block and there was quite some milk solids left over. I didn't want to waste them, after all it is just solidified milk. When I was talking about this with amma, she gave me this idea to make laddoos. Sounded simple and knew that the huss would love these.

I used wheat flour but you can use urad dhal or moong dhal flour too. And tastewise, it was great ~ crunchy from the milk solids, melt in the mouth from the ghee and nutty from the wheat flour. One point that needs attention is roasting the wheat flour. You have to get a nice nutty aroma and the colour should be a golden brown.

Prep Time: Nil; Cooking time: 15 mins; Makes: 7-8

~*What U Need*~
Left over milk solids from the ghee
Wheat flour - 1/2 cup
Sugar - 3 tbsp
Ghee - 3 tbsp or more
Cashew nuts - 2 tbsp

How I Made it:
Put the wheat flour in the pan which has the milk solids and mix well to combine. The flour should become wet. Transfer this to a kadai and in medium heat roast till you a rich aroma and the wheat flour turns golden brown. Remove from heat, add the sugar, give it a stir and allow to cool.

Heat 3 tbsp ghee in a pan and fry the cashews.

Once the wheat mixture becomes hand-bearable, add the cashews and the ghee, mix well and start forming laddoos. Add more ghee if you cannot form balls.

Store in an air-tight container!!!

So thats it Folks...
With Love,

  18. Hello Vimitha,
    These laddos remind me of my grandmother who used to make them after making ghee. Rich in taste, they were relished very much by everyone. I have also to thank you for Raagi porridge that you once posted in your blog under the name "malt" (if I remember correctly). Whenever I make it, I remember you. Thanks :)
