Aate ke laddu or Atta laddoo is a rich and tasty recipe. This is also called Pinni in North Indian homes. Aate ke laddu has been the first sweet I would enjoy on reaching my granny's place. The whole box of wheat laddu would be waiting as soon as we reached Bhopal. How I wish I could revisit those days again!
My earliest memory of Pinni
It only reminds me of childhood, my mum and grand mum. It is simple and simply melts into mouth. My grandma made it for us when we were kids. Whole wheat ladoo is as good as having a roti. Full of proteins and carbs.This one more powerful with nuts.You could eat one and be full till lunch time.I love making them for my family too. When we were kids, grandma would make it before we came to her place and also make a big box of them when we would go back after vacation. Food is a great way of preserving your memories. Now as a mum, I make it for my family. You can also make it for travel as it stays good for a long time.

Others may add jaggery instead of sugar if you do not want to add white sugar to it. Add an extra teaspoon cardamom if you like.
