Atte ke Ladoos (Godhumai maavu/ Wheat Flour Ladoos)–Diwali Sweets

Hope all are enjoying this Diwali season with sweets and snacks.Today I am going to introduce a healthy laddoo for growing kids. Always doing Chapatis or any other stuffed paratha is a routine in our daily basis. Try this Ladoo which is otherwise called as Gothumai Maavu Urundai.

Atte ke Ladoo are the easiest to make of all the ladoos. is an easy and tasty sweet ladoo recipe. These are quite popular in our house and are a must in Diwali sweets.Wheat flour is rich in calcium and vitamins which is very essential for kids and women. Having so many health benefits, these balls require very few ingredients and can be prepared within a few minutes. These balls are not soft like ladoos but have a powdery crumbling texture that melts in the mouth when you take a bite you can store these in clean airtight containers for days and serve when needed.So let’s get into the recipe and make some wonderful and yummy ladoos.
