Banana Ladoo | Energy Balls | Healthy Snack Recipe | with step by step photos and video. A healthy snack recipe using overripe bananas.
1 glass Matta Rice or Red Rice
1/2 tsp Cumin Seeds
4 Bananas (overripe)
1 tsp Ghee/Butter
10 tbsp Jaggery Grated or as required
1/4 tsp Dry Ginger Powder (optional)
2 pinches of Salt
- Firstly, take a glass of matta rice and wash it twice or thrice using water.
- Keep it aside and allow it to drain off the water for 30 minutes.
- Now we are going to roast the drained rice. For that heat a pan and add the drained rice.
- Roast the rice over a medium-high flame with continuous stirring until the rice turns its color.
- At this stage, turn the flame to low and add 3 cardamoms, and 1/2 tsp cumin seeds.
- Roast them again for 30 seconds and switch off the flame. Transfer it to another plate and allow it to cool down completely.
- Once cooled transfer to a mixie jar and grind to a fine powder. Transfer to another bowl and keep aside.
- Now, heat 1 tsp ghee in a pan.
- Chop the bananas and add them to the hot pan. Mash the bananas using the ladle and mix them.
- Once the heat starts to get in the bananas it will start to loosen. Saute for 7 to 8 minutes until the banana thickens as shown.
- Now add 1/2 cup of grated jaggery and mix well. (Amount of jaggery depends on your sweet taste.)
- Then add 2 pinches of salt and 1/4 tsp dry ginger powder. Mix them and lower the flame.
- Start adding the ground rice powder little by little. I added nearly, 1/2 of the ground rice powder.
- Mix it and switch off the flame.Transfer it to bowl. Once it is slightly cooled, start kneading and see if the dough is sticky. If so, add some more rice powder and mix them until it turns non-sticky. Non-sticky dough is ready.
- Pinch small amount of dough and roll them to small sized balls.
- Coat it with rice powder and serve them.
- Delicious banana balls are ready.
- Use overripe bananas.
- Use jaggery based on your sweetness taste. It depends on the quality of jaggery you using.
