Its Navratri season back in India and I absolutely miss the celebrations here in NZ.
Yes we do get to play garba here in weekends but then its no fun as I do not have much of a friend circle here. At least like the one from back in India.
However there is one particular tradition that I am following here during Navratri. And that is inviting 9 girls over lunch and doing the pooja.
So this time since my Mom is here she took over the kitchen and decided the menu and I ended up making only these Oreo Laddus.. <3 Needless to say the kids absolutely loved this one. And I was jumping from joy within. I thought of making the Rose Coconut Laddu again but ended up making these Oreo Laddu.
You won't believe the texture play in these Oreo Laddu.
First since they are made up of oreo cookies they have this amazing cookie crumbs.
These are stuffed laddus which means it has a stuffing of nutella and nuts in the centre. I mean nutella seriously!!! I just love nutella. You absolutely know it from my 3 ingredient Eggless Nutella Cookies made in Pressure cooker right!!
Moving on I dumped these Cookies in the melted chocolate; ahhh nutella + oreo + cookies - death by chocolate laddus..
And then comes the best part. These Oreo Laddu were then coated with the Waffle cone crumbs. There is nothing that you can go wrong with this Laddu. The crumbly waffle cone and the soft cookie made it one perfect combination.
- 20 no oreo biscuits
- 2+2 tbsp Nutella
- 2 tbsp Melted butter
- 4 tbsp chopped nuts (almond, pista and cashew)
- 100 gms Semi-sweet chocolate (optional)
- 3 nos Waffle cones (optional)
- Crush the waffle cones coarsely, melt the chocolate and keep aside.
- Take 2 tbsp of nutella and add chopped nuts to it. Mix well. Keep aside
- Grind 20 oreo biscuits coarsely. Add the melted butter and nutella and grind one more time. Transfer to a bowl.
- Pinch out a small portion and round it off to make a laddu or ball shape. Flatten it and add the mixed nutella nuts in the centre. Bring the flattened oreo crumbs to a round shape and round it off.
- Dip it in the melted chocolate and then onto the crushed waffle cones crumbs.
- And your oreo laddu is ready.
1. Using melted chocolate and crushed waffle cone crumbs is optional. You can serve it as it is or even use desiccated coconut instead.
2. Instead of nutella you can use ganache or even peanut butter.
3. If by adding melted butter and nutella you are still not able to roll it into a ball then add 1 more tbsp nutella and mix it thoroughly.
