Semiya Laddu


This is a quick and easy recipe for making laddu with vermicelli/semiya. Usually we use semiya for preparing payasam or upma . But this time for a variety I have tried laddus. You can try this for any festive season or simply in the evenings as a snack. If you don’t like the smell of ghee, you can use warm milk to shape the laddus.


  • Vermicelli – 1 cup
  • Sugar – 1/4 cup
  • Cardamom pods – 4
  • Cashew nuts – 8
  • Ghee – 2 teaspoon


  1. Grind sugar along with cardamom seeds into fine powder using grinder.
  2. Grind cashew nut also into fine powder.
  3. Heat half a teaspoon of ghee in a pan on low heat, add vermicelli and saute until golden brown; allow to cool. Grind roasted & cooled vermicelli to a fine powder.
  4. In a mixing bowl add ground sugar, vermicelli, nuts & cardamom powder; mix well.
  5. Pour warm ghee and shape them in to ladoos.
