My sister had this at her friend’s place and she loved it. She told me about this , but did not know the exact recipe. As I tried searching through the net , I found the recipe in Aayis recipes. Incidently I had a few left over chapatis of the previous day and I made this yesterday. I followed almost the same procedure. It tasted really good.
Tear the chapatis into small pieces. Place in a hot oven(around 200c) for 15 to 20 minutes
till they turn a little crisp. Now grind them to a fine powder. Combine this with jaggery
and mix well. Now heat the ghee in a pan. Add the cashews. Now add the mixture of chapati and jaggery along with the cardamom powder. Keep stirring for sometime. Remove from flame. Place the contents on the plate. Add little milk in it and ensure that there are no lumps. Take some mixture on your palm and knead them into small balls(laddoos).
My friend gave me another suggestion. Instead of heating them to make them crisper, you could just grind the fresh chapatis to a fine powder. Combine ghee and powdered jaggery in it and knead into laddoos. Heat if necessary.This is quite healthy and filling for kids too.
