Pro tips & tricks by Anishya
- Grease hands with ghee or oil while rolling the laddus/ balls. So that you will get smooth laddus.
- Adding ghee helps the body to absorb nutrients from the millets fast.
- I have added jaggery where the sweetness is not too much or less. Increase or decrease the jaggery according to your taste.
