Atukula Laddu ~ Beaten Rice Recipe
Atukula Laddu is a simple and easy to make festive sweet that is prepared in many homes for Sri Krishna Jayanthi festival. Beaten rice or flattened rice flakes is a popular ingredient that is used to prepare many varieties of savory and sweet dishes for Janmashtami. There are numerous variations to the Atukula laddu recipe which is also known as Atukula Unda/Vundalu in Andhra. A popular variation is the additon of dry coconut powder, roasted chick peas (dalia) or peanuts and jaggery.
Today, I am posting a slightly different version of the beaten rice recipe which calls for yellow moong dal, vermicelli and powdered sugar. These laddus can be stored upto a month in an air tight container. Just ensure that you grind all the ingredients to a very fine powder before forming the mixture into laddus.
