Step 1: In a pan, melt the ghee or clarified butter over medium heat. Once it's melted, add the hemp seeds and roast them until they turn golden brown. This should take about 5 minutes. Keep stirring occasionally to prevent the seeds from burning.
Step 2: While the seeds are roasting, add the jaggery or brown sugar and milk to another pan. Heat the mixture over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the jaggery is completely melted and the mixture becomes smooth.
Step 3: Add the cardamom powder and nutmeg powder (if using) to the jaggery mixture and stir well.
Step 4: Add the jaggery mixture to the pan with the roasted hemp seeds and stir well to combine.
Step 5: Remove the pan from heat and allow the mixture to cool slightly. Once it's cool enough to handle, take small portions of the mixture and roll them into small balls.
Step 6: Allow the ladoo to cool completely before serving.
And that's it! Your delicious and healthy hemp seed ladoo is ready to be enjoyed.
Here are a few tips and tricks to keep in mind while making your ladoo:
If the mixture is too dry, you can add a little more milk to make it more pliable.
If the mixture is too wet, you can add a little more hemp seeds to absorb the excess moisture.
If you don't want to roll the ladoo by hand, you can also press the mixture into a tray and cut it into squares or diamonds after it cools.
