In a bowl, mix together, oats, jaggery, cardamom powder and nuts.

Heat a tsp of ghee, saute the raisins until they puff up and add to the oats mixture.

Melt needed ghee and add to the mixture little at a time. Mix well and make balls. Make sure that the ghee is warm.

Storage and Shelf Life - Store it in an airtight container. Stays good for 15 days at room temperature.

  1. Can this oats laddu be done with unrefined cane sugar instead of jaggery

    1. Yes, this laddu can be done with unrefined cane sugar also.

  2. Thank you ... Should the cane sugar be ground

  3. I want to add dates. Should I first dry roast the dates pieces then add this to the oats mixture?

    1. No, you do not have to dry roast dates. Chop it finely and grind with the oats mixture. If you are adding dates, reduce the amount of jaggery and ghee.

  4. If we add the dates, shelf life will reduce, correct? It will stay good for how many days?

    1. No, even if you add dates, it will stay good for a month. Avoid using wet hands.
