Moong Dal Laddoo

Mugdha Mohanty | 02:44 | |
Diwali is round the corner and all are gearing up for the festival of lights by preparing festive treats for family and friends. So today i am sharing with you all a very quick and easy laddoo recipe that is protein rich and very delicious. Moong dal laddoo is a classic festival food and yet another favorite dish from my childhood days. Moong dal is very nutritious, especially for kids. 1/2 cup of moong dal is equivalent to one egg. So we can give these laddoos to our kids without any hesitation. This is a favorite sweet of my family..Wish u all will enjoy the festival of lights..wishing u all a very Happy Diwali ahead...enjoy....:-)

Ingredients :-

  • Moong dal - 1 cup
  • Sugar - 3/4 cup
  • Warm Ghee - 4-5 tbsp
  • Seeds of 2-3 cardamoms
  • Ground Cashews - 2 tbsp(optional)

Method :-
  • Heat a pan and dry roast moong dal in a low flame for 5-6 minutes or till they turn into golden colour.
  • When cooled grind them in a mixer in to a coarse powder. 
  • Not too coarse, should resemble a fine powder but when you touch it, you must still feel the grain.

  • Grind the sugar and cardamom seeds in to a fine powder.
  • Sieve both the powders together in to a large mixing bowl. Add ground cashews.
  • Now add ghee little by little to the mixture until they reached the laddoo consistency.(i.e; to be able to shape in to balls) 

  • Apply little ghee to your hands, with the help of them roll the mixture in to small lemon sized balls or laddoos.
  • After 1/2-1 hour, store in an air tight container.
  • Serve as desert or a snack.

Notes :-

  • The dal and sugar powder mix can be made ahead and preserved. Make laddoos whenever you want by adding warm ghee to it.
  • Increase or decrease the amount of sugar according to your choice.
  • You can add any dry fruit of your choice in place of cashews to the laddoo mixture, while making the laddoos.
