Poha Laddos with Gulkand and Home Made Condensed Milk / Flatten Rice and rose petals balls with Home Made Condescend Milk

I made this laddos once without gulkand and everyone loved it so when next time I was thinking what to make , I thought why not to make poha / Aval laddos with gulkand. But I was not in a mood to open up the condensed milk can just for that because I was not sure that I will be using it soon or not. So I tried to make condensed milk at that time, made it , love it  and it was so easy and so delicious, now I am thinking what I will do to those cans which are sitting in my pantry. You can add melted chocolate also in this laddos, it will enhance the flavor more and you can cut back condensed milk.

To make condensed milk I need icing sugar, since I was not a big baking person and above all icing person, I don't have it in my pantry, I Google the recipe and it was easy so I made that first , then I made condensed milk and then I made laddos. Don't worry I will show all three recipes here in one post only. so lets make Poha laddos.

For Icing sugar

1/4 cup regular sugar
1 tbsp. Corn starch


Blend the sugar in blender and make a powder out of it.
Then add corn starch and pulse for 4-5 times only.
Done , your icing sugar is ready. since in condensed milk, I only needed 1/4 cup, I make that much only.
DON'T MIX CORN STARCH IN THE BEGINNING , with the heat and chemicals, sugar will harden.


Condensed Milk Ingredients :

1/2 cup milk powder
1/4 cup icing sugar
1/4 cup boiling water
1 and 1/2 tbsp. butter chopped


Boil the water till it bubbles.
In a blender, add milk powder, icing sugar and butter. Pulse it for few times.
Add the boiling water and make a fine puree out of it.
Take it out in bowl or container where you want to store it and when it's cool store it in fridge or use it in recipe.
Since I was going to use it at once, I keep it out till it cools.

Poha Laddos Ingredients :

2 cups Poha  / rice flakes / Aval
1/2 cup condensed milk
2 tbsp. warm gulkand
pinch of cardamom powder
nuts in you want to add any, I didn't


Dry roast poha in a pan  till it change it color little bit.
Take it out and let it cool.
Then add those poha in blender and make a powder. It totally upon you , if you like texture leave little bit whole or make it fine powder.
Take it out in a bowl, add condensed milk, cardamom powder, gulkand  and mix it very well.
It should make nice balls, if doesn't then add more condensed milk.
Make as per your choice balls. If it sticks to your hand, grease it with little bit ghee or water.
Serve it after 15 minutes so you will have nice crunch.

By the time I post this , made this twice and this time I made it with molasses, turned out good too. check it out. If you don't have molasses, use pancake syrup, comes out same and use less ghee too.
