Recipe Notes For Atta Ki Ladoo/ Pinni

  1. Always roast the edible gum on medium or low flame, if cooked on high flame then it will get cooked from the outside but the inside will remain uncooked.
  2. Roasting the dried fruits is very important as it removes the extra moisture that they have, thus resulting in the longer shelf life of the atta ladoo/ pinni.
  3. While making pinni/ladoo if you feel the mixture is dry then add some more ghee.
  4. Never store the atta ladoo/ pinni while they are still warm else they can get spoiled because of the moisture.
