Aate Ka Laddu Recipe

Laddu from wheat flour!? This was the expression when I had this Laddu for the first time at a friend's place. How can anybody prepare laddus from the same flour we use for making chapatis? The taste was so good that I could not afford to delay in collecting the recipe and trying it at home. Here is my simplified version of aate ka laddu or wheat flour ladoos. 

Ingredients :
Wheat flour - 2 cups
Ground Sugar - 2 cups
Ghee - 1 cup
Cardamom powder - 1/2 tbsp
Dry fruits

Procedure :
1. Heat ghee in a thick bottom pan. Add the flour, mix well
2. Keep stirring continuously on low flame until the color of the flour changes to brown and nice aroma comes (keep adding a spoon of ghee if the flour dries out.)
3. Once the color changes, switch off the heat.
4. Allow the mixture to cool a bit. When it becomes warm, mix ground sugar, cardamom powder and dry fruits.
5. Mix well and take some quantity in hand and form into laddus.
6. If the laddus are not forming into shape and breaking off, you can add ghee to the mixture and try.
7. Cool them completely before storing in airtight container.
