Peanut Ladoo Recipe – Easy and Healthy Peanut Laddu

Peanut Ladoo or Mungfali ke Laddu, as they are called in Hindi, are a delicious snack prepared from roasted peanuts (groundnuts), jaggery and ghee as the main ingredients. These ladoos are extremely easy to prepare and healthy as they are loaded with nutrients like protein, fibre, essential fats, iron, potassium, magnesium etc. You should especially eat them during the winter as jaggery has a warming effect on the body. These ladoos can also be eaten during Navratri or any other vrat as well as prepared as a healthy sweet during festivals like Diwali and Holi. Navratri 2020 begins on October 17 while Diwali 2020 is on November 14.

Peanut Ladoo Recipe – Easy and Healthy Peanut Laddu
Recipe Type: Sweets and Desserts, Snacks
Cuisine: Indian
Author: Shradha
Prep time:
Cook time:
Total time:
Serves: 21 mins
  • 1 cup peanuts
  • 1/2 cup jaggery or as required
  • 3 tsp ghee (melted) or as required
  • powder of 3-4 green cardamom
1 cup = 200 ml

How to make peanut ladoo?

  1. Roast peanuts on low heat while stirring continuously. Note: Do not over roast otherwise the ladoos will taste slightly bitter.
  2. Once the peanuts are roasted, take them out in a plate and let them cool down a bit.
  3. Take off the skin of the peanuts once they have cooled down a bit as shown in the video.
  4. In a mixer grinder jar, add peanuts and jaggery and coarsely grind the peanuts. Note: I have used jaggery powder for this recipe but you may use grated or sliced jaggery.
  5. Now add the cardamom powder and ghee to the peanut-jaggery mixture and mix well. Note: If using sliced or grated jaggery the peanut-jaggery mixture will become sticky and you will need less ghee to bind the mixture together.
  6. Make the ladoos by gently pressing the mixture in between the fist and rolling it in between the palms.

These ladoos can be stored in airtight container for a couple of weeks and will last longer in the fridge.
