While traveling we always carry Atte ke ladoo, mathri, and chivda with us. I just love Atte ke Ladoo for lots of reasons. First, they are delicious. Second, my kids love them.

      HI Winnie. Its a traditional recipe and we have always used ghee in it. So I do not know if butter can be used and how will it taste. Sorry I have never tried that.
