To Make Muthia

  • Preheat the air fryer/ oven at 400F

  • Once done, do a knife test. If the knife comes out clean, your muthias are ready.
  • Let the Muthias cool down completely. In a skillet roast the poppy seeds until they smell little nutty. Stir them continuously, as they burn fast. Keep it aside.

Make Churma

  • Pulse the Muthia in a food processor until fine coarse powder.

  • Now add cardamom powder, nutmeg powder, salt , and nuts. Give it a mix.
  • In a skillet, add melted ghee and jaggery. Let the jaggery bubble. Once it starts to bubble, take it off the flame and add it to the churma.
  • Now with the help of a spatula mix everything thouroughly.

Make the Ladoos

  • Add more melted ghee, while the churma is still warm and start to bind the churma mix.
