Shenga Undi is basically laddus made of peanuts. This used to be one of the five laddus that my mom made during Nagara Panchami. Laddus, new dresses, bangles and swings – that is what we had during Naga Panchami. We used to bathe a mud and silver Nagappa with milk and eat the yummy snacks and play swings.
Roasted peanuts 500 g , brown sugar 300 g , ghee 1 tablespoon, water
Preparation of the brown sugar syrup – Heat brown sugar by adding 1 cup water and 1 spoon of ghee to prepare a syrup ( 2 string consistency – the syrup when stretched between the thumb and the forefinger should give only two strings).
Powder the peanuts to a coarse consistency and mix well with the hot syrup.
Prepare laddus while the mixture is hot by applying little ghee and cold water to the palms.
