Aate Ki Pinni recipe (aata ladoo)

Aate Ki Pinni is a mouthwatering sweet dish that is very well-liked in India’s northern states.

It is an easy and healthy laddu recipe made with wheat flour, gond, sugar and clarified butter. the dessert mainly hails from the north Indian cuisine or particularly from the Punjabi house but is widely accepted in India.

Aate Ki Pinni can be made for any festival celebration or occasion, but also as a snack or as a simple dessert after the meal. People with a sweet tooth will find this dessert recipe to be a great joy. Serve this wonderful dessert to your guests as a way to celebrate Baisakhi.

The gond particles in the wheat pinni laddu add to its flavor and make eating it a pleasant experience. Furthermore, I enjoy desserts that are tasty because they combine wheat and ghee. In other words, the only difference between this recipe and the panjiri is the shape of the balls.

Suji can also be added in addition to wheat flour to create a gritty texture.

The wheat flour shouldn’t be overroasted since otherwise it would burn and taste unpleasant.
