Ganesh Chaturthi Special – Coconut Laddoo

Hello Everyone,

Today is Day 6 of the chaturthi festival and with Lord’s grace everything is going virtuous until now. I am actually loving cooking everyday for Bappa, it gives immense purity and faith to my soul.

Now, talking about Lord Ganesha, Hindu deities are seldom depicted without their particular β€˜vahana’ (vehicles) on which they travel. These vahanas are either animals or birds and symbolises the various forces they ride. So, is in the case of Lord Ganesha. His “Vahana” is a “Mooshak” or a “Mouse”. The mouse represents ego. Lord Ganesha using the mouse represents the need to control ego and so it’s said that one who controls his ego has Ganesha consciousness.The wandering mouse also signifies the wavering human mind.

 It is said that if one whispers their wishes in his ear, he transfers this message to lord gently and the desires are fulfilled. In every situation, mouse is always seen with the Lord. It is said that the Mouse of the Lord is just a vehicle, he is his friend that is why Lord Listens his messages that are conveyed by the devotees. The mouse is also offered with sweets specially Ladoo or Modak.

Now, coming to the offerings, I did aleady share the recipe of Modak in my last blogs. Today, I am going to share the recipe of Ladoo – Coconut Ladoo which I did prepare yesterday and it came out good πŸ™‚ It was a quick and easy recipe I learnt , but you need to make sure that you have all the ingredients handy. This time, I made laddoos using the 3 step process, but later down the line, I would also share an elaborated process of making Laddoos.

Preparation Time : 15 minutes, Cooking Time : 15-17 minutes, Calories : 115/Laddoo.

Ingredients :

  1. Desiccated/Shredded Coconut – 1.5 cups
  2. Ghee – 1 tablespoon
  3. Sweetened Condensed Milk – 180 gms
  4. Milk ( Half Cream) – 40 gms
  5. Raisins – 10-15
  6. Cardamom Powder – 2 tablespoons

Directions :

  1. In a pan, add the ghee and heat it slightly.
  2. Once the ghee gets heated up, add the grated coconut and fry it lightly. We do not need to “brown” the same as it might turn bitter.
  3. Now, add the condensed milk and the half cream milk to the coconut. Give it a nice stir.
  4. Add the raisins and the cardamom powder at this stage and mix it well.
  5. Now, cook the mixture until the coconut fat starts getting released from the sides. You will also see the milk is thickening and getting mingled with the coconut.
  6. Now, once the mixture is cooked completely, keep it aside and cool it down.
  7. Once the mixture has been cooled, make small balls/circles out of it. You can easily make 15-17 ladoos if you use the above mentioned quantity.
  8. Now, roll the ladoo on the desiccated coconut powder and repeat the same for all the ladoos.

Ladoos are now ready to be served πŸ™‚

Please do try this at home for you and your family. Yes, you will need to burn extra if you want to eat extra ..haha πŸ˜€

Ganesh Chaturthi Special – Modak

Happy Ganesh Chaturthi to all my dear friends,

Yes, today is the day of deity. The eternal Lord who takes away all the obstacles and brings health, wealth and prosperity – Yes its our Ganpati Bappa. I remember looking out for Bappa everywhere ever since I was too little. He is also known as Ganesh or Vinayaka.

Although he is known by many attributes, Ganesha’s elephant head makes him easy to identify. Ganesha is widely revered as the remover of obstacles, the patron of arts and sciences and the deva of intellect and wisdom. As the god of beginnings, he is honored at the start of rites and ceremonies.

The festival of Ganesh Chaturthi first originated at Maharashtra which was later moved to other states as well. It is widely celebrated throughout the Indian nation with full faith and belief. An annual festival honors Ganesha for ten days, starting on this day (Ganesha Chaturthi) which typically falls in late August or early September. During this day, devotees offer number of offerings to the Lord which also includes Modak, Laddu, Sheera,Halwa, Payasam, Poori and Aloo. Devotees worshiping also sustain fasting for the God and happy to say that I am also the one fasting this year.

So, I did get up early morning and started preparing for the rituals. I Know that Ganesh Ji loves Modak and what would be better start than this. I had all the ingredients ready for the same, however, I made one small mistake with the proportion of water and flour due to which I had to go through the same process again. But, you learn from your mistakes and I am happy that I was able to offer deluctable Modaks to Lord Ganesh.

So, without much ado lets start the recipe!! Please do remember to follow the measured quantity to avoid any rework.

Ingredients :

  1. Water – 1 cup
  2. Rice Flour – 1 cup
  3. Ghee – 2 tablespoons
  4. Salt – A pinch
  5. Jaggery Powder – 150 gms
  6. Shredded Coconut – 100 gms
  7. Poppy seeds – 1 tablespoon
  8. Dry Fruits – chopped 20 gms

Directions :

  1. In a pan, add 1 cup water, 1 tbsp ghee and pinch of salt. bring it to boil. Once the water starts boiling, add in the Rice Flour and mix it for 1 min in 1 direction .

**I added 1 and 1/2 cup of water in the first attempt and the dough got too sticky. As a result, all my modaks broke apart πŸ™

2. Allow the flour mix to cool down. Once cooled down, start kneading the same. Apply some oil on your palm, and start to make a soft dough out of the same.

3. Make sure there are no lumps in the dough and it should be soft enough. Keep it aside and start working on the filling.

4. In another cooking pan, add 1 table ghee and roast the poppy seeds. Keep it aside. Now, in the same pan add the Jaggery Powder and shredded coconut and fry for another 10 minutes.

** If you do not have Jaggery Powder, add in the Jaggery rock itself and melt it in ghee. This makes the filling even more consistent.

5. Now, from the already prepared dough, make small balls and press it with your palm. Softly start pressing the ends of the dough. Put the jaggery and coconut filling inside it and close/seal the ends. You can alternatively use the modak shaper to shape the modaks. I did use my hand and trust me it worked πŸ™‚

6. Repeat the same process for all the balls. With this quantity, you would be able to make about 7-8 modaks.

7. In a steamer, steam the modak for 8-10 minutes and allow it to cool down for sometime.

Modak is now ready to be served πŸ™‚

Besan Ke Laddu

Hello Friends,

How are you all doing ? Apologies from my end as I could not post anything last week as I got preoccupied with lots of office weekend work and scheduled releases. Did not really get much time to cook and record.Yet, I am back again on blog posting a recipe which was my ultimate favorite during my childhood days. Yes, you got it right…Its Besan Ke Laddoo..

I remember bugging my Mother and Maasi ( Mommy and Mommy’s sister) to make this laddu every month and I used to thoroughly enjoy each and every bite of it. I tried replicating this dessert for the very first time in my life and let me be very honest that the laddoos made by them wins hands down, not because the recipe had some special ingredient or elements but because of immense love and affection they pour it in the laddoos to make it extraordinary which makes them irreplaceable.

LadduΒ orΒ laddooΒ is a sphere-shaped sweet originating from the Indian subcontinent; the name originated from theΒ SanskritΒ wordΒ Lattika. Laddus are primarily made from flour, fat (ghee/butter/oil) and sugar. Besan ke laddu are very popular in the northern, western and eastern parts of India. The major ingredient for this recipe is Gram flour, Ghee and Sugar.

Gram Flour/Besan has number of health benefits which includes – weight loss/sugar level control/skin tightening etc.. On the other hand, Ghee is also extremely beneficial for the body and is a very good source of energy and good fat. You should make it a habit of including ghee in your diet, But, please do remember that excess of anything is not good πŸ™‚ So eat right and stay fit.

So, without much ado, lets start the recipe !!

Preparation Time : 10 minutes, Cooking Time : 45- 50 minutes, Calories : 165 calories.

Ingredients:

  1. Ghee – 1 cup.
  2. Besan – 1 and half cup
  3. Powdered Sugar – 1/2 cup. You can change this quantity based on the level of your desired sweetness.
  4. Dry Fruits – Finely Chopped for garnish.
  5. Cardamom Powder – 1 tablespoon

Directions:

  1. Finely chop some dry fruits ( Cashew,Almonds,Raisins,Pistachios) and keep them aside.
  2. In a cooking pan, add 2 tablespoons of ghee and all of the besan. Start cooking and stirring them on a low-medium flame.
  3. Please remember that Besan/Gram Flour should be properly cooked on a low flame to give it a roasted nutty flavor. If the besan isnt cooked properly, it might taste raw and bitter. So, lots of patience is needed to cook the same.
  4. After, 15 minutes, you will see that besan has changed its color to golden brown. At this stage and add 2 more tablespoons of ghee and stir it along.
  5. Add the cardamom powder to this mixture now.
  6. The besan would start thickening and would start getting firm as it is cooked. Keep stirring the mixture so that it doesnt stick to the bottom of the pan.
  7. After 10-15 minutes, you will see that the besan has cooked even more. At this stage add 2 more tablespoons of ghee and stir it along.
  8. The mixture would become even thicker and of a smoother consistency and after some time, you will observe that the ghee starts getting released from the sides.
  9. Now, turn of the flame and allow the mixture to cool down a bit. It will turn into a holding consistency.
  10. After the mixture is cooled down , add the powdered sugar to it as per your taste. Mix it very well.
  11. Now, throw half of the chopped dry fruits to it.
  12. Now, start making small balls from the mixture. The ball size completely depends upon your choice. I made it a little smaller.
  13. It will be very tender when hot. You can make the laddoos and cool it down for sometime to bring out more flavor to it. Garnish it with dry fruits and enjoy!!

Please do remember that patience plays a key role while making these laddoos. So, plan your work accordingly. Please do try this recipe at home and let me know how it turns out to be.

  3. Now, take a 7 inch greased pan and transfer this mixture to the pan. Make sure to properly spread it out and press it using a spoon to make it even.
  4. Now, in another mixing bowl, add 400 ml whipped cream and start whisking it using an electric beater. You can also beat manually but that would take little time. Add one spoon sugar and whisk it again.
  5. Gradually, add mangoes to the whipping cream and beat it until soft peaks are formed. The whole whisking process takes about 5 -7 minutes.
  6. Add yellow food color to this and whisk for additional 20-30 seconds.
  7. Now, transfer this soft and airy whipping cream on top of the biscuit layer ( to the greased pan).
  8. Quickly, heat 75 ml of whipping cream and add white chocolate to it ( 5 – 6 cubes) . Heat and mix until a glazy texture is formed. Immediately, turn of the heat. Add pinch of yellow food color to the same.
  9. Transfer the chocolate glaze on top of the whipping cream. This step is optional.
  10. Now, transfer the greased pan to the freezer and freeze it for about 5 – 6 hrs.
  11. You can bring it room temperature just 15 minutes before consuming it.
