MOONG DAL LADOOS- NEI URUNDAI-PAYATHAM PARUPPU LADDU- {METHOD 2}
Moong dal ladoos is very tasty & traditional dish. This is very high in protein & rich in texture and quiet easy to make.I already made another version of this ladoos in my site. This ladoos is traditional in Northern India.I love little crunchy taste, so i didn't sieve it. If you want, you can sieve it before making the ladoos.

Ingredients

Moong dal-1 cup
Sugar-3/4 cup
Ghee-1/2 cup
Cardamom powder-a pinch

Method


Dry roast the moong dal until light golden brown. Allow it to cool & grind to a fine powder with cardamom. If you want a very fine powder use a fine sieve. I didn't sieve it because I love a little crunch in it.


Heat ghee in a pan, add ground moong dal, sugar & mix well.
Allow to saute until nice aroma comes out.make it cool.
Make small balls & keep it in a tight container.
