Leftover Biscuit Balls/Ladoo

Do not throw the leftover broken biscuits and crumbs.  Try this simple biscuit ladoo recipe made from leftover biscuits.  You can use any leftover biscuits either sweet or salty. You can also mix different types of biscuit crumbs together to make this recipe.

I'm using ghee in this recipe.  You can use either cow ghee or buffalo ghee. Ghee is clarified butter which is used as a cooking medium in India since time immemorial. 

But hey! don't worry if you don't have ghee. You can use butter instead of ghee. I have used buffalo ghee here. Buffalo ghee is white in colour and good for weight gain. So I didn't used too much of it out of weight gaining fear.  But these biscuit balls...... I couldn't stopped myself... It was just yummy 😋.
