Nei Urundai - Moong Dal Laddoo

Wishing you all a wonderful New Year ! I know that I'm 20 days late,but better late than never:P This is a quickie post from Chennai,I would rather call it Madras.For those of us who love the city and its spirit it will always be Madras :)Little girl and I are happily lazing around here for a month now,filling our tummies with all kinds of good food.This is one place where I never log into the Internet, but I still don't feel cut off from the world.So off to one of the simplest yet tastiest sweets :)

You"ll Need:
Yellow Moong Dal - 1.5 cups
Powdered Sugar - 1 - 1.5 cups
Ghee - 1/4 cup
Cashew nuts (broken) - 2 tbsp
Whole Milk - 2 - 3 tbsp

-Dry roast the Moong dal on a low flame until it gives out a nice aroma.
-Grind it to a fine powder in a mixer. Sieve it to get a fine powder.
-Mix the moong dal powder and powdered sugar well.
-To a pan add the ghee and when it heats up add the cashew nuts and saute until it slightly changes in colour.
-Add the ghee and cashew mixture to the powder and when it's still warm shape them into small laddoos. If it's difficult to make ladoos or if the ladoos don't hold their shape sprinkle the milk little by little until you are able to make smooth ladoos.
-Store in air tight containers. Done !
-For a soft and smooth ladoo,grind the moong dal in a rice mill.

Thanks for stopping by ! Have a nice day !
