Panjiri Ladoo Recipe:


Panjiri is one dish which almost every Punjabi household prepares and adores. It is specially made in winters for everyone to eat. But, when a lady comes back home after delivery, this is prepared and distributed amongst friends and family as a token of celebration. Every household has its own recipe to prepare it. but I am sharing how it is done at my home. I have also tried and made a version of it which is very useful for toddlers and growing children.


Ingredients (For 250 grams of Ladoo): 


2 cups Wheat Flour


1/2 cup Besan or Chickpea flour to add taste and flavor


2 tbsp Semolina


2 tbsp Rolled Oats


4 tbsp Ghee


1/2 cup nuts powder (Crushed Almonds, Cashews, Pistachios)


4 tbsp Sugar


1 tsp Elaichi Powder



  1. Take a heavy base kadai and heat the ghee in it. Add wheat flour, besan, semolina and oats one by one and roast till the mixture is of a light brown consistency. Add nuts powder, elaichi powder and keep roasting till it is of a good brown colour and smells good.
  2. Add sugar and switch of the gas. The heat will melt the sugar a bit.



This panjiri is really tasty and filled with nutrition. Earlier people loaded it with ghee but I have used very optimum amount. People also add things like khus - Khus, Bhuna jeera, Alsi and other ayurvedic herbs to it for lactating mothers.


These ladoos can be taken while travelling and stay good for a day.
