Moong/ Pesarra ladoos

Ingredients to make Moong/ Pesarra ladoos

  • moong dal 1 cup
  • sugar 1 cup
  • cardamom pods 4
  • ghee 1/4 cup
  • almonds 2 tablespoons chopped

How to make Moong/ Pesarra ladoos

  1. Firstly powder 1 cup sugar and cardamom seeds into a fine powder . Take 1/2 cup of this powder for preparing ladoos .
  2. Heat a wide pan . Gently roast 1 cup moong dal under low flame till it releases aroma and turns slightly brown in colour . At this stage , switch off the flame . Allow it to cool completely .
  3. Grind this cooled Dal into a coarse powder . Needn’t be too coarse to handle .
  4. In a mixer bowl , take both the ground powders and mix well to ensure there are no lumps . Add chopped almonds .
  5. Melt ghee and keep adding this warm ghee in regular intervals , while mixing the powdered ingredients . If at all , you can’t hold into shape / balls , add about 1 tablespoon of warm ghee and make ladoos .
  6. Start making balls using your greased palms .
  7. Moong / Pesarra ladoos are ready to serve .
  8. The ladoos can be stored in an air tight container . Stays fresh for about two weeks .

My Tip:

Stick to the quantity of ghee . Very less / too much ghee both spoils the dish. You can’t hold ladoos as desired. If using roasted readymade moong dal , skip the roasting step .
