Motichoor Ladoo recipe – Motichoor Laddu or Laddoo are basically a ball-shaped sweets very famous in India. Motichur or Motichoor ladoo is a combination of gram flour, ghee, Cardamom powder, sugar and dry fruits. Motichur Ladoo tastes real good if it is made in suddh desi ghee. The aroma of desi ghee gives a very nice flavor to it and you can,t just have one.:)
In India Laddus are considered a favorite sweets of lord Ganesha as well as Lord Hanuman. I have seen people offering Boondi or, motichur ke laddu on Tuesday to Lord Hanuman.
The only difference between motichur and boondi laddus is that the boondis in the boondi laddus are larger and are fried till they are slightly brown in color, however Motichur laddus are made with very small sized boondi (just like crushed rice) and they are not fried till they darken. And one more thing is that, motichur ke laddu are made very soft that it would just melt in your mouth.
If you have ever seen movies from the late 70s or, 80s, you are sure to have heard of a few dialogues when, the grandmother in the family calls the loyal servant at home, who more often than not goes by the name Ramu Kaka, and asks him to get Motichur ke laddu to sweeten the mouth of the visitors and the family members alike on the occasion of the finalization of a wedding or, when the struggling boy of the home lands a job in the City.
Though Motichur ke laddu made in Pure Ghee was considered a sweet of the rich, it was equally found in the not-so-rich as well. That is the kind of legacy that Motichur ke laddu carries.
