Some recipes are too simple to prepare but tastes great. Peanut ladoo is one such recipe. When my mom does not have any time for preparing after school snack, I used to eat roasted peanuts with a piece of jaggery.My Grandma once saw this and suggested to make peanut ladoos instead. My grandma is an expert in making such delicious ladoos with her pounding stone.

Peanuts/Groundnuts may aggravate Pita. So do not take more ladoos at a time.
