1 Step
peanut laddu step 1

Heat a heavy bottomed pan on a medium flame and add raw peanuts. Roast till peanuts turn crunchy. Keep stirring continuously so peanuts do not burn. You can reduce the flame to low in-between. Do not over roast otherwise the ladoos will taste slightly bitter. Take the roasted peanuts in a bowl and let them cool. Transfer the peanuts to a grinding jar. Grind to a coarse powder. Keep aside.

Take 1/2 cup desi ghee in the kadhai. Once it melts, add 1 cup water chestnut flour and fry it till it turns aromatic. Takes around 5 minutes. Remember to keep stirring it continuously. As soon as the flour is cooked well, and starts to change the color to darker brown, it starts releasing the ghee it has absorbed in the beginning. this is the indication that flour is cooked and its time to turn off the flame.
