Atta Ladoo

Atta Ladoo is a famous North Indian winter snack or dessert. It is also known as Pinni or Panjiri. My mom and mom-in-law are experts in making ladoos and I always learn from them. Atta ladoos are made of whole wheat flour, ghee and nuts. I have used gond as well to give it a crunchy flavor. You can skip it and it will taste equally good. Hope you enjoy it!!!
