Peanuts or groundnuts or moongfali is a versatile seed that has its presence all over the world it is used in curries, makes a wonderful spicy sauce for stir fry , peanut butter to make bread more interesting or it is a snack on its own.

This is a very simple recipe that is close to my childhood , In India peanuts is one of the acceptable food for fasting days so whenever there were days for fasting this amazing peanut ladoo’s were made and as a child I just couldn’t get enough of them.

It is a very quick to make recipe with just 3 ingredients, it will yield 7-8 ladoos


  • Peanuts – 1 Cup
  • Bura (Powdered Sugar) – 1/2 cup
  • Ghee (Clarified butter You can use unsalted butter if needed)- 2-3 spoons


  1. Toast peanuts and remove their peel by rubbing with your hand, take the clean toasted peanuts in a grinder and make a fine powder
  2. Take out the powder and mix sugar (You can adjust sugar level as per your preference) and ghee (Ghee is added to bind the ladoo’s together so add a little at a time and adjust as per your need, you don’t want too much butter in there)
  3. Mix all the three throughly and start making small balls of these (Ladoo’s) If they are not binding properly add more ghee 1 spoon at a time.
