Urad Dal Ladoo / Sunnundalu
India has an array of really delicious, finger licking and yummy sweets. Ladoo is often prepared for festivals or family events such as weddings and births, or given as a prasadam (religious offering of food) at Hindu temples. Urad Dal ladoos are prepared during festivals like Diwali, Holi and many other Indian festivals. It is not only healthy and nutritious but tastes also great. Since Holi is around the corner, I thought of trying my hands on making these ladoos. It came out perfect. Give it a try, you will love it!

- Take grounded urad dal in a wide bowl. Add powdered sugar, nuts and cardamom powder and slightly warm ghee. Mix all the ingredients well while rubbing the mixture in between your palms till it gets a crumbly texture. The mixture to make the ladoos is ready.
- Take a small portion of the mixture into your hands and shape it into small round shape ball. Repeat the same for the rest of the mixture.
- Healthy and yummy ladoos are ready to eat.
- You can store these ladoos in an airtight container on room temperature for a month.

- Make sure you don't mix the sugar when dal mixture is hot. Sugar will melt and you won't be able to shape them properly.
