Mohan Laddu Effect With Wonton Wraps

Written By Srimathi Mani on Wednesday, May 12, 2010 | 8:02 PM

Seriously! what was I thinking, Mohan Laddu a very traditional sweet ladoo made with wanton wraps. I confess that I did not actually decide on creating any ladoo to start with. I was trying to make samosa's with different types of wraps and I got a packet of wonton wraps for that. I did not like the samosa's made with them. I made the samosa's with tortilla's and there was some oil remaining. Looking at the wantons I thought it would be good to fry them and use them in chat mix. While I was frying my daughter wanted me to make her a special sweet snack. I looked at the wantons and thought it must be fine with some sprinkled sugar. I gave it to her and I tasted a tiny bit of that. It reminded me of something I used to enjoy, Mohan laddu.

Traditionally it is made with rava or cream of wheat dough rolled out into discs or tortillas and deep fried. It was then powdered coarsely with some sugar and made into ladoos. Looking at all these wantons in my bowl I had a change of heart and I decide to make my favorite Mohan Laddu which was ready in minutes.



Gadgets:

Blender/Mixie
Bowl
Spatula
Measuring cups

Ingredients:

Fried wanton wraps(egg less ) - 30 ( Makes 3 - 4 cups powdered)
Sugar - 3/4th cup to 1 cup( according to taste)
Cardamom - 2 pods
Roasted cashews - a few (optional)



Preparation:

1. Coarsely powder the wantons and remove 1/2 of it and place it in a bowl.

2. Grind the remaining half with sugar and cardamom into a very fine powder .The powder will all stick together because of the oil in it.

3. Mix it with the coarse mixture, nuts and make into balls or ladoo's.
