Policha Ladoo

Last December I posted leftover chapati (POLI in Marathi) recipe "Kuskara". Kuskara is our all-time favorite dish. Yesterday after so many days I made Policha Ladoo that is chapati or roti ladoo. Aai used to do this for us as a evening snacks with morning leftover chapattis. I tell you this ladoo will turn out good only with 12-24 hrs old chapati. So that they will crumble very easily.


Chapati - 4-5

Grated or powdered jaggery - 4tablespoon

Ghee - 1 tablespoon

Poppy seeds - 1 teaspoon

Grated dry coconut - 1 tablespoon (optional)

Cardamom powder - 1/2 teaspoon


Tear chapatis into pieces and grind the chapatis coarsely in a mixer. Heat kadai and add ghee into it. Fry poppy seeds in ghee. Then add grinded chapati. Fry it for 1 minute. Now add jaggery, grated dry coconut and mix well. Saute it till jaggery melts properly. Take off heat. Add cardamom powder. This mixture should be little soft. If the mixture is little dry add little milk into it. Make little ladoos of it. Everybody will be happy and you can solve the problem of leftover chapatis:)

One of the best ways of putting the left over chappatis to use..very rich and healthy!! I wonder why it is never looked upon as a nice fesivatl it only because of the leftover chappatis as its main ingredient!! :(
