Laddoo from Maner!

Posted by Rewa Smriti on June 26, 2008

Today while I was chatting with my friend Roushan, he was trying to pull my legs, but as usual he couldn’t make it. So sad! In between he said ‘हे भगवान तुम्हारा दिमाग़ कैसे बना है?’ I replied, ‘मोतीचूर की लड्डू से’! He again said ‘जल्दी खाली हो जाएगा’ and I replied ‘तुम चिंता मत करो क्यूँकि हमारे cute गणेशजी को भी यह बहुत पसन्द है, वो भर देंगे’! I don’t know ‘मेरे दोस्त सब मेरे दिमाग़ के पीछे क्यूँ पड़े रहते हें’! 😦

Anyway, suddenly laddoo started floating in my mind and reminded me something related with laddoo. I asked him that do you know the place called ‘मनेर’ (Maner) or have you heared about ‘मनेर का लड्डू’ (laddoo from maner)? He said that he doesn’t know about it, and I explained about ‘मनेर का लड्डू’. Then he added that here in kanpur we have a ‘ठग्गू के लड्डू’ and I asked him what is that thaggu? He said, they say in ads “ऐसा कोई सागा नही जिसको हमने ठगा नही”…very funny! 😉

Coming to the point, There are various kind of laddoos made in different style and having different taste. I am talking about Motichoor laddu is an Indian sweet delicacy, made from grilled gram flour flakes which are sweetened, mixed with almonds, pressed into balls and fried in ghee. As I know this is originally from ‘मनेर’ (Maner), a small town near Patna. It is now made and enjoyed throughout the India. ‘मनेर का लड्डू’ की बात ही कुछ और है, और जो इसे ना खाए वो तो पक्का पछताए.’ I can say that ‘मनेर का लड्डू’ is famous and delicious like ‘आगरा के पेठे’ (Agra’s peetha) or ‘बीकानेर का भुजिया’ (Bikaneri bhujia) is famous! It is often made to celebrate festivals or weddings. 

You know me and my brother both are very fond of sweets and especially motichur ka laddoo and gulab jamun are our favourite sweets! घर में रोज पूजा में प्रसाद चढ़ाया जाता है! मुझे याद है जब हम छोटे थे और माँ हमेशा पूजा के लिए भाई को प्रसाद लाने बोलती थी तो वो अपने मन पसन्द की मिठाई लेते आता था, और यह कहकर माँ को खुश करता था कि गणेश जी की प्यारी मिठाई लड्डू लाया हूँ. फिर सब उसे चिढ़ाते थे कि गणेश जी की प्यारी या तुम दोनो की प्यारी मिठाई. लेकिन हम चुप ही रहते थे क्यूँकि ये हम दोनों की मिली मिलाई प्लान होती थी. 🙂
  
कल मेरा सबसे प्यारा छोटा भाई मुझसे मिलने आ रहा है और मैं आज उसके लिए लड्डू ला रखी हूँ, इसलिए मेरे दिमाग़ में यही चल रहा था. Waise I am sure कि लड्डू के नाम से ही अभी सभी के मुँह में पानी आ रहा होगा! 😛

    @Premsir, वाह वाह…आपके तो दोनो हाथों में लड्डू….आप तो बहुत चालू निकले…ये नही चलेगा…लड्डू तब खाने को मिलेगी जब मेरी मूवी चलेगी और अगर पीट गयी तो बिल्कुल नही मिलेगी. वैसे पीटेगी नही! शुक्रिया 🙂

  16. Are chalegi kaise nahi.. Pure Cinema Hall mein kam se kam ek darshak main to hounga hi na 😛

    Waise Muhurat ke samay hi Maner laddu bantogi to film chal sakti hai…Waise it all depends on Choice of Actor too.

  31. Shivam shiva said

    It seems movie is going to b in Bojpuri..bcoz no mention of outsider aspirants…gud dubbing facilities are available if sum1 doesnt know the required language…hope i will get favor from leading lady of this movie (swetaji).
    Cheers

  32. shweta said

    @ my team
    shukriya shukriya. and welcome aboard. kaam jara jaldi shuru karein? laddu basi hone se pahle?
    to ji kafi kuchh to mil hi gaya hame. bhagvan ki kripa se madhuri si mast dancer(choreographer)bhi mil gayi9.
    to ji aab bacha hai actor. vaise villain and comedian ka role bhi hai. aab jo bhi interested hain screening ko taiyar ho jayein. kyunki kisi ki kismat ka faisla hone vala hai, kisike bhagya ka darvaja khulne vala hai.
    doc sahab, mujhe bimar karne ki itni taiyari?????????????? koi bat nahi. apko bhi dekh lenge
    aur sets to mast honge hi jab abhay sir ka hath lag jaye.vaise natural sets bhi bure nahi hote. what sAY?

    and team members are also invited to nominate.
    and its not just actress who ll choose the actor, others will have a say in the matter. so what are you waiting for dudes and dudesses. have it now

  33. Shivam shiva said

    even people are ready to work on honorary remuneration…still project is not getting started…sweta mam has sumthing else in mind…Rewa itz quite possible she has started work with her favorite actor,villain,comedian n choreographer but not disclosing it..keep eye on censor bord if any movie is being registered as MANER KE LADOO…atleast u can file intellectual property rights complain against these upcoming stars…to pacify all release tak badi badi baatein world, country etc. kar ke emotional rakhengi…baad mai movie ke laddo bhi share nahi karenge akeli hi kha jayengi…

  34. shweta said

    ohhhh…….well, if the movie ll b in bhojpuri, dubbing is all we need at the first place, as bhojpuri is nt the only lingo in bihar.
    and none is outsider sir. we all belong to the same planet ccalled earth. and to make it close, we belong to the same country.
    but if we have the plans to dub the movie even in sth indian lingos. so u ll b there ofcourse.

    सचमुच मुँह में पानी आ गया है, मुझे भी मोतीचूर के लड्डू बहुत ही पसन्द हैं। लड्डू कई तरह के बनते हैं, राजस्थान में हमारे यहां चूरमे का लड्डू भी बहुत बनता है.. आहा! क्या स्वाद होता है उसका। यह राजस्थान के पारंपरिक भोजन दाल- बाटी के साथ बनता है।
    ठग्गू के लड्डू की दुकान का फॊटॊ यहां देखा जा सकता है।
    मनेर के लड्डू भी कभी खाने ही पड़ेंगे… पता भेज दूं क्या? 🙂

  36. @Shivam
    Aapko pata nahi hai aap kiske bare mein bol rahe hein…I can’t even think of filing intellectual property rights complain against her as she is steadying law baba. Mujhe muft mein lene ka dene per jayenge…And I know my sis yaar, she can’t do such mistake…She will do justification with all. Don’t worry…ok ji!
