Gond ka Laddo is a very Popular dish in India. It's made up of wheat flour mixed with edible gums and nuts which become very rich in taste. Gond or edible gum crystals are available in small pieces which are cooked before eating. Generally, we fry these gum crystals with ghee and mix with wheat flour but in this recipe, i haven't fried I used this gum crystals at last when the wheat flour is about to get roasted. Saute it for 5 to 6 mins Gums will all fluffs up due to heat.
Heat ghee in a heavy bottom pan, when the ghee becomes hot adds the whole wheat flour and roasts it in a pan over slow flame. Stir continuously till the flour turns golden brown in colour.
When you find the wheat flour has change its colour and about to get roasted add edible gum. Gum will fluffs up almost double within few mins. I haven’t deep fried the edible gum as its fluff up automatically due to the heat of wheat flour mix with ghee.
Now the wheat flour has been roasted and nice aroma is coming. Turn off the heat and add chopped almonds and mix it well.
Allow to cool until it can be touched by hand comfortably.
Now add powdered sugar to the roasted wheat flour and mix well.
Take small handfuls in your palm and roll them into round shape laddoos, if you find it difficult to shape the laddus, add a little melted ghee.
