Hesarittu Unde (Moong Laddoo)


1 cup hesarubele(yellow moong dal)
1 cup powdered sugar
3-4 tbsp hot ghee
cardamom powder
1/4 cup kobri(dry coconut)
cashews and raisins


Roast the hesarubele with a little ghee until you get a good aroma. This takes about 10-12 mins. Roast the cashews and raisins and keep aside. Once the hesarubele cools, make a fine powder. Add the powdered sugar, cardamom powder, kobri, cashews and raisins and mix well. Now add the hot ghee little by little, and make balls out of it.

Note: Roast the hesarubele on medium heat so it doesnt turn brown fast. The key is to roast on a low flame so the raw smell disappears and it gets to a golden brown color gradually. If you roast too much, its gonna get bitter. When making balls, dont press too hard or else they will become hard.

Makes around 10 laddoos.
