Happy Diwali everyone 🙂  This year being the first year for my daughter, it is quiet special. But these days I am rarely getting time. Preparing day to day food with her is getting challenging.Even if I prepare something taking picture is time consuming 🙂 So I made this quick laddo. I try to include millet in my diet as they are rich in iron. This is a basic poha laddo, with the addition of millet.

Samai_Aval_laddo Samai_Aval_laddo_1 Samai_Aval_laddo_2


Little Millet/Samai : 1 cup

Poha/aval/Beaten Rice : 1/2 cup ( I have used red poha here)

Dalia/Pottukadalai : 1/2 cup

Sugar/Jaggery : according to your taste ( I used jaggery)

Ghee : 1/4 cup

Cashews : 10 to 15 numbers

Milk : 2 to 3 tablespoons


  • Dry roast little millet/samo, poha, dalia and grind it to a fine powder.
  • If you are using sugar grind it to a fine powder as well. I used jaggery, so I made a syrup and heated it.
  • Heat ghee in another pan, roast cashews.
  • Add ghee, jaggery syrup to the powder and mix.
  • Heat milk and mix with the above.
  • Form round balls when hot. If needed add more ghee.

As we are adding milk, this needs to be refrigerated. Stays good for a week.
