Peanut(Verkadalai) Pista Laddu

Some recipes are too simple to prepare but tastes great. Peanut ladoo is one such recipe. In this I have added pista for a change. Eating all time peanut ladoos was looking plain for me.So I have just played with broken pistas.Try it and this tastes yummy and delicious. Go for it and try once.

When my mom does not have any time for preparing after school snack, I used to eat roasted peanuts. Ladoos come in many varieties. Peanut ladoo is a tasty snack which is prepared under 10 minutes.This can be prepared on the day of fasting or during festival seasons.My grandma is an expert in making such delicious ladoos with her pounding stone.Peanuts/Groundnuts may aggravate Pita. So do not take more ladoos at a time.

4. Now use the same ghee (which we roasted for cashews and raisins) for making rounds. This is because to consume less ghee.Now shape them into small byte sized ladoos
