Atukula Laddu/Flattened Rice Laddu is a healthy sweet which is easy to make. Atukulu/Flattened Rice is one of the favourites of Lord Krishna. Recipes with these are quick and easy. Gojjavalakki, poha,chivda, Atukula Payasam are some of the popular dishes. Gojjavalakki is often made in Karnataka.
Flattened rice can be eaten raw with milk, jaggery or sugar, a quick breakfast or a snack. Atukula laddu is made of jaggery, clarified butter/ ghee, and dry fruits. In this recipe, I haven’t used any wet ingredients other than clarified butter/ghee. Trust me this tastes yumm with ghee. You can even eat as it is without making it into balls in powdered form like Satyanarayana Swamy podi prasadam, which looks like a crumbled mixture.
You can use milk if required but I personally don’t prefer it as it feels a little heavy and difficult to store for a long time.
Now let’s get into the step by step procedure of the recipe
