Low Carb Chocolate Laddu

By 01:29:00 , , , , , , ,

Okay, it is obvious that I'm still stuck in Deepavali mode.
I used to enjoy variety of Indian sweets/desserts and Deepavali is the best time to eat 'em all. Of course being in ketogenic lifestyle I will have to avoid these yummy, spiced sweets.
So I went hunting for some inspiration on keto indian desserts and voila.....i found this perfect low carb chocolate laddu with simple ingredients and non-complicated steps to prepare it.
Laddu is originally made of flour, ghee (butter), sugar and some nuts/dried fruits. I always like soft, crumbly and melt-in-the-mouth laddu...oh how heavenly! And one of the most important ingredients is cardamom powder, since I cannot get any so I have resorted to grinding them from scratch. 
This recipe is not going to have the melt-in-the-mouth effect as we will be using coconut flour, so it will have some chewiness to the laddu. And we will be using whipping cream instead of butter...hmm..perhaps I should re-create this recipe with ghee/butter next round!

30 gm Whipping Cream (and more for shaping the laddu)

Directions:

  1. Heat the pan over medium heat, toast all the dry ingredients until fragrant.
  2. Add the whipping cream and stir it well, turn off the heat. (Tips: It will looks clumpy and coarse-textured)
  3. Remove from pan and let it cool before shaping them into round balls. If the flour-mixture is too dry to get into shape, add some whipping cream (add little by little).
