Malida - Chapati Laddoo

Basically, I am not that fond of very sweet things. So when my sister- in-law made this malida/ chapati ladoo, I was little cautious while taking taste of it. But after having a little bite, I can't control to eat whole laddoo. It was just delitious, also it was not too sweet and buttery. I just loved it.
After that, It became like ritual of preparing extra chapatis and having freshly made malida with my family.

Serves : 6-7 laddoos ( depends on size)
Time : 5 mins.


5/6 Left over chapatis/freshly made chapatis
1 tsp roasted fennel seeds2tsp clarified butter(Ghee)
2 tsp grated jaggery or to taste
1/2 tsp Cardamom powder


1. Crumble chapatis in rough pieces.

2 In blender, add roasted fennel seeds, chapati pieces and blend coarsely till it will have even structure.

3. Mix vigorously chapati pieces, grated jaggery, butter, cardamom powder with hands.

4. Make balls out of it. Serve.

1. These can be stored for a week.
2. Some people doesn't like malida made using blender in that case use your fingers to make very small pieces of chapatis.
3. This is good option as snack for children as they like the taste but will not understand that they are eating chapatis .. so children's are happy as well as moms :-).
3. Malida made from Leftover chapatis is more tasty than freshly made chapatis.
