R - Ragi Laddu/Finger Millet Flour Laddu

Ragi Laddu is a healthy Laddu that is high in iron, calcium and fiber. My grandma makes these Laddoos and used to feed them to my grand father who has diabetes as they are made with Jaggery.
Being highly nutritious, I give them to the kids and my daughter loves these. 

Preparation Time: 5 minutes 
Cook Time: 20 minutes 
Makes : 15 laddoos 

Ragi Flour/ Finger Millet Flour : 1 cup
Roasted peanuts: 1/2 cup
Coconut powder: 1/2 cup
Jaggery: 1 1/2 cups grated
Elachi/green cardamom: 2 powdered 
Water : 1/2 cup


Heat a fry pan and dry roast the Ragi flour for 2 minutes. Add coconut powder and fry for 1 minute. 
Take the roasted peanuts in a blender and make a coarse powder.
Mix all of them together and keep aside. 
Add water to jaggery and bring it to a boil, the syrup should be soft ball consistency. (Take some water in a plate and drop the syrup, the soft ball should form immediately)
Turn off the stove and add the powder mix to the syrup. Mix well. 
Grease your palms and make the Laddoos immediately. I just rolled them in a little bit of coconut to give a flaky look.
Store in an airtight container for 2 weeks.
