Sajja Laddulu(Bajra Laddu)

My final recipe for this week is again with a millet. Because millets are best substitute for a diabetic diet to replace with white rice. Bajra is one of those millets we used to cook it in the place of rice for lunch or we mke rotis and some sweets. Cook bajra with little salt and serve with any spicy, tangy gravy the best combination for lunch. Bajra is one of the common grain which is used widely in rural India. Bajra is well known as Sajjalu in telugu, we make Sajjaburelu (a sweet snack) with this lillet in Sankranthi festival time. This sajja laddulu is an experment for my diabetic sweet recipe. So I used jaggery for this recipe but you can replace with refind sugar. I used 1/2 cup ghee if you feel that is a large amount of ghee I used. You can reduce the ghee and sprinkle some milk to make laddu's. But when you mix with milk this sajjaladdulu won't stay for long they stay for one or two days. If you make this laddu's with melted ghee this will stay for a month.
So let's check the recipe...

Sajjalu (bajra)  ----  1 cup
Jaggery  ----  1 cup grated
Ghee  ---  1/2 cup
Badam ( almonds)  --- 20
Cardamom powder  ---  1/2 tea sp
1. Dry roast bajra in a low flame till they lightly change the color.
2. In the same pan dry roast almonds for a while
3. Now grind both bajra and almonds in to a fine powder.
4. Add grated jaggery to the millet powder mix well.
5. Melt the ghee and add little by little to the flour mix well with your hand.
6. Add ghee little by little to the flour till you can fold the laddus.
7. Make all the laddu s and store them in a airtight container 
This bajra laddu's will stay till one month.
