    I love to eat laddus but whenever I make them at home, they fall apart/they break.

    Could you please give me a tip for how to make round laddus without broken them breaking, like the ones we get from shops?"
    See above for my corrections to your post and to your sentences about laddus. Note that I have rewritten the first sentence completely to make it natural. There is just one main correction to the second part.
    Remember to capitalise proper nouns at all times (English, Indian, Australia, Microsoft, Shakespeare etc).
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    While we are at it, could you tell me what laddus is? If I go to an Indian restaurant and order laddus they will know what I am asking for, right?

    Laddus are one of the Indian traditional recipe, they tastes sweet and looks like tennis ball. It makes a big role in every Indian festival. You can buy the 'Laddus' from Indian sweet shops not from restaurants.
