Kajri Teej is a joyous festival celebrated by married and unmarried women in Northern India, especially in the states of Uttar Pradesh and Bihar.

In this article, we'll guide you through a simple and scrumptious method to make Sattu Laddus that will elevate your Kajri Teej celebrations.

What are Sattu Laddus?

Sattu is a flour made from roasted gram or chickpeas and is known for its high nutritional value. It is widely consumed in Northern India and is especially popular during the scorching summer months due to its cooling properties. Laddus, on the other hand, are sweet round-shaped treats made from various ingredients, often including gram flour (besan). When you combine these two, you get the delightful Sattu Laddus - a fusion of health and taste.

Ingredients You'll Need

For Sattu Mixture:

1. Sattu Flour: 1 cup 2. Jaggery: 1/2 cup (you can adjust the quantity based on your sweetness preference) 3. Ghee (Clarified Butter): 2-3 tablespoons 4. Cardamom Powder: 1/2 teaspoon 5. Chopped Dry Fruits (Almonds, Cashews, Pistachios): 2 tablespoons 6. Desiccated Coconut: 1 tablespoon (optional) 7. Raisins: 1 tablespoon 8. Poppy Seeds (Khus Khus): 1 tablespoon 9. Milk: 2-3 tablespoons (if needed)

For Rolling:

1. Ghee (Clarified Butter): For greasing your palms 2. Extra Sattu Flour: For dusting

Step-by-Step Instructions

Step 1: Roasting Sattu Flour

  1. Heat a pan on low-medium flame.
  2. Add the Sattu flour to the pan and dry roast it until it becomes aromatic and slightly changes color. Ensure you stir continuously to prevent it from burning.
  3. Once roasted, transfer it to a mixing bowl and let it cool down.

Step 2: Preparing Jaggery Syrup

  1. In the same pan, add the jaggery and a tablespoon of water.
  2. Heat it on low-medium flame until the jaggery melts and forms a syrup. You can check the syrup's consistency by taking a small drop and placing it in cold water. It should form a soft ball.
  3. Turn off the heat and add the cardamom powder to the syrup.

Step 3: Combining Ingredients

  1. Pour the jaggery syrup over the roasted Sattu flour.
  2. Mix it well to ensure the syrup coats the Sattu evenly.
  3. Add chopped dry fruits, desiccated coconut, raisins, and poppy seeds to the mixture. You can also add a couple of tablespoons of ghee at this stage for extra richness.
  4. If the mixture feels too dry, add a little milk to bind it together.

Step 4: Shaping the Laddus

  1. Grease your palms with ghee to prevent sticking.
  2. Take a small portion of the mixture and shape it into round laddus. You can make them as big or as small as you like.
  3. Roll each laddu in extra Sattu flour for a beautiful texture.
