Steps In Making Murmura Laddu

  1. In a heavy bottom pan over medium heat add the murmura and while stirring it continuously dry roast them for 3-4 minutes. Now remove them on a plate.
  2. In the same pan add ghee and once it melts add the jaggery and while stirring it constantly cook till it melts completely and gets a boil. (around 3-4 minutes)
  3. Now lower the flame and add the murmura and mix till everything is well combined.
  4. Transfer the murmura ladoo mixture on a plate and let it cool down for couple of minutes till you can touch it. Don’t let it cool down completely. We have to make the ladoos while the mixture is still slightly hot.
  5. Take some water and rub it in between your palms. Now take a spoonful of the murmura ladoo mixture and form ladoos. Be careful as the mixture is hot right now. Similarly form all the ladoos.
