Oats Laddu with Jaggery

By Swasthi on July 19, 2022, Comments, Jump to Recipe

Oats Laddu Recipe – Oats Ladoo is one of the easy Indian sweets recipes that I love to prepare at home often. It can be prepared with sugar or jaggery and not much of ghee is needed and it is optional. They are non-sticky while you hold on and slightly chewy and taste good. They can be made absolutely fat free or vegan by eliminating the ghee.

I had posted an oats burfi recipe last Diwali, so this time thought of sharing this laddu recipe too.

This recipe is a no fail one and needs no string consistency, while the burfi can become powdery or may not set well, if one goes wrong with the string consistency. Do try this healthy Easy Diwali Sweet Recipe.

I have used organic brown sugar cubes this time; you can use white sugar or brown sugar or even jaggery.

I wanted to know, if these laddoos can be stored or to be consumed immediately? If stored, outside or best to refridgerate?

Mam thanks for all the receipes i prepare kazzikayalu,so nice mam can u plz post the kobbri boorelu

Hi dear.
I made this reciepe today..much to my dismay it was a disaster.the jaggery had hardened …i switched off the gas when the jaggery was still sticky and watery as i felt it took quiet some time. The end ladoos were rock hard.pls help

Thanks swasthi for the prompt relpy.yes i do think its the quality of jaggery.even boiling water has not softened the ladoos 🙁
Pls suggest attributes of good jaggery. The jaggery i purchased was swad brand..extremely popular brand in mumbai and thane.

Tthanks swasthi

How to clean the impurities from the grated jaggery ? In some of the sweets ,we are adding it directly to the blender to make powdered form. In case we are making the syrup of it, we will sieve to remove the dirt.
