Whole Moong Dal Ladoo

Initially planned not to make any sweets or savories for Diwali but then after seeing posts coming from all around the world , I couldnt resist myself from making something .

After bursting a session of crackers wearing our newly bought dresses, we all step out armed with sweets and savories to meet our near and dear ones. This is the festival of joy.

Electric lamps have been hung at almost all the houses and the nice aroma of making sweets coming to my nostrils through the windows and the blog posts with so many wonderful pictures and recipes .. Wow Diwali has already started for me .

Here is my part too ..



Ingredients :

  1. whole monng dal : 1 cup
  2. Sugar - 1 cup 
  3. Ghee - a little less than half cup
  4. Dry fruits of choice .. I have used cashew nuts
Method :
  1. Dry roast moong dhal in a heavy bottomed pan until nice aroma comes and immediately turn off the gas.Cool it off completely and powder it.
  2. Powder the sugar and keep it aside.
  3. Heat a pan and add ghee , once the ghee is hot enough add the moong dhal mixture and give a stir. Turn off the stove and add powdered sugar and mix nicely.
  4. Make balls out of the above mixture . 

Yes, this blog is all about easy peacy , low fat ( though it is not completely low fat but this is one of the low calorie sweets right ;) )
