Moong dhal ladoo
Diwali sweet/Indian/vegetarian


Moong dhal (dehusked): 1 cup or store bought Moong dhal flour!

Sugar: 1 cup but I used 3/4 (milder version)

Green Cardamom: 6 (remove the seed from the pod)

Cashew: 10 numbers broken into small pieces

Ghee: 1/4 cup + 2 tsp more for frying cashew and dhal




Add a teaspoon of ghee and roast the green gram dhal. Let it cool and grind into powder. Sieve to get a fine powder.

Grind the sugar and cardamom.

Fry the cashew with 1 tsp of ghee until golden brown.

Mix the green gram flour, sugar, carda and cashew together.

Heat the 1/4 cup of ghee , add one tbsp at the time in the mixture and make a ladoo. DO NOT POUR AT ONCE.

It could take less or more ghee... Try to make dry the ladoo- Less calories, if you add lots of ghee, it will be soft but take time to hard .


Yield: 8 medium size ladoos


Note: I used the store bought Moong dhal flour, fry for few minutes with little ghee and proceed the same way. It was much quicker and easier.
