Ingredients to make Sunnundalu- Urad dal ladoo

  • 2 cups urad dal
  • 1 .5 cups sugar
  • 4 tbsp Raw rice
  • 1 tsp cardamom powder
  • 150 ml oil n ghee mix or just ghee ( you can add more if required as its the only wet product that helps in binding ...i used 50 ml ghee and 100 ml oil )

How to make Sunnundalu- Urad dal ladoo

  1. In a pan add the dal and rice. Dry roast these two on medium heat stirring in intervals until golden. This might take 20 to 25 mins, so be patient, this is the only time consuming step.
  2. Once they turn Golden, turn off the heat, transfer on to a plate and allow them to cool at room temperature. Next, in a blender jar add sugar and cardamom pods, grind into a fine powder.
  3. Transfer the sugar powder in to a bowl and repeat grinding with roasted dal n rice.. Once its done transfer to the sugar mix.
  4. Next heat the oil n ghee mix or just the ghee to luke warm. Now add this to the Powdered dal n sugar mix..if u wish u can add some roasted n chopped nuts at this stage ,as well. Now mix it thoroughly n start shaping into ladoos.
  5. Once all done, store in air tight container n cherish till stock lasts.

My Tip:

Adding rice helps in making ladoos smooth n mouth melting without sticking to the gums and teeth...  just after shaping you will observe a shine on ladoos that is formed becoz of oil / ghee, do not worry as they tend to dry out when stored. Do not use more of oil or ghee as it will be difficult to shape n oil starts to drip ... ***I used about 50 ml ghee and 100 ml all the dals are different it might take a little more or less than do not add all at once ..add little by little n check if u r able to shape or case u r not then u can add a lil more and check...until u attain desired texture.. ***Fry dal n rice on medium heat not rush as the taste n flavor of  ladoos totally depends on this...Patience is virtue !!!
