Pesara Sunnundalu (Moong dal laddoo)

What I used:

Split green gram dal : 1 cup
Sugar : 3/4 cup
Ghee : 4 1/2 to 5 tbsp

How I did:
  • Heat a heavy bottomed pan or any non-stick pan on medium flame and roast green gram dal till golden brown.
  • When cooled grind them in a mixer grinder into 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 too into a fine powder.
  • Sieve both the powders together into a large mixing bowl.  
  • Fold in the ghee and with the help of your hands roll them into small lemon sized balls.  The gram and sugar powder mix can be made ahead and preserved.  Make laddoos whenever you want by adding ghee to it.
  • Serve as a dessert or a snack.
Sending this recipe to "Only" Festive event started by Pari of Foodelicious and now hosted by Preeti of Khaugiri and also to "Celebrate Sweets - Laddoo" event started by Nivedita of Nivedita's Kitchen and hosted by Nithu of Nithu's Kitchen .  They all have a lovely space, do check their blogs.
