A sweet bonanza to my blog!!!

As you all know that personal blogs are meant to express anything you feel and like. In that way, I thought of posting a sweet recipe though am not an expert in cooking. This sweet is called as Moong dhal ladoo. It looks like as if it’s very difficult to make but I feel it’s one of the easy dessert to prepare and to surprise your loved ones. Making complex things to easy one’s is what I love to do and that’s what my blog is all about. Let me tell you how to prepare this yummy ladoo’s….
(makes 6)
1 cup yellow moong dhal (split green gram)
heaped 3/4 cup sugar (adjust to taste)
3-4 cardamoms, peeled and powdered (add little sugar and grind to make it powdery)
8-10 cashews, broken into pieces
about 10-12 teaspoons of ghee

On low heat toast the moong dhal till it is a uniform reddish brown color. Remove from heat and spread on a plate to cool.

Powder the sugar in a blender. Heat a teaspoon of ghee and saute cashews until light brown. Remove in a bowl and keep aside.

Grind moong dhal to a fine powder and mix with cashews, sugar and cardamom-nutmeg powder.

Heat about ten teaspoons of ghee in a wide sauce pan. Add dhal mixture and stir until well combined. Remove from heat and shape into lemon sized balls when the mixture is still warm. Add teaspoons of hot ghee gradually if the mixture cannot be easily shaped.
