very delicious laddu, can be preserved for a long period in powder form and can be made into laddus instantly whenever guests come.

Ingredients vegetarian 20 servings

    1 kg Split black gram Dal 1 kg Sugar 10 gms Cardamom 200 gms Ghee


    1. Roast the blackgram dal over a low fire till it turns golden brown in colour and gives an aromatic flavour. Remove from flame, spread it on a cloth and allow it to cool.
    2. Grind the dal and sugar with cardamoms separately in a mixer. The powder can be little bit coarse.( I mean it should not be ultra fine.)
    3. Mix the dal powder and sugar powder thoroughly. This powder can be preserved for many days.
    4. Required amount of powder can be taken and shaped into balls by mixing with melted ghee (at room temperature).



    Black gram dal means dhuli urad dal (White color)? How much melted ghee should be used for 1 cup powder (mixed with Sugar) ?
