Churma na laadva - Cracked wheat laddoo

4 cups fine cracked wheat
1 cup jaggery
1/4 cup nuts - cashew nut, almond
1 cup ghee
3 tbsp oil
Oil for frying

To the cracked wheat, add oil and water, and knead until a hard dough is formed
Make roughly oval balls of the dough
Fry in oil until golden brown
Allow them to cool
Grind in a food processor, along with the chopped nuts until medium fine (not too coarse, not too fine)

In a sauce pan, heat ghee and jaggery
Mixture is done when the jaggery rises on top of the sauce pan - watch closely as this takes only a few minutes post melting point
Add the mixture to the wheat powder

Cool the mixture until easy to handle
Make into round balls
Garnish with a slice of almond
