Green-gram dal ladoo recipe
Yield – 12 ladoos

Green-gram dal – 2 cups
Sugar – 1-1/2 cups
Cashew nuts – 8
Raisins – 2 tablespoons
Ghee – 3-4 tablespoons
Copra (dried coconut) – 2 tablespoons, finely sliced
Cardamom – 10 pods, finely powdered dry
Salt – ¼ teaspoon

Method: Fry the green-gram dal to a light brown color in a dry, hot, heavy frying pan over moderate heat. Grind and sift the fried dal to flour in a blender or in the grinding stone. Pound and sift the sugar also to powder. Combine the dal flour, sugar powder, copra, and cardamom powder with salt. Make the ghee just hot and fry separately in it the split cashew nuts to a light brown color and the raisins till they swell out. Break the cashew nuts into small bits. Mix along the cashew nuts, raisins, and dal-flour mixture in a bowl. Make the same ghee to smoking hot, remove from the fire, stir the dal-flour mixture thoroughly into it, and shape into small lemon-sized ladoos. If the ladoos crumple, bind it with a sprinkling of warm milk or hot water. Enjoy!

Vkn,hi the ladoos look yummy, should the green gram powder used be coarse in texture to get the end result as in the pic..?

Thanks everyone.

RP - Things are once again settled down at home and work fronts. Hope that I would be able to spare some time every day with my passion, My Dhaba.

Lera - a semi-coarse flour as in the third picture from top. You may be able to view a bigger picture by doubleclicking on it.
