Quick n Easy Moong Dal Laddu/Pesara Sunnundalu

I was getting ready to leave for a week-long business conference in a different city. It was 2 hrs before I have to leave to the airport and suddenly my almost 3 yr old comes up to me and asks "Mommy I want sweet. I want laddu. Make laddu..." This is the first time I will be away from him ever since he was born and it was heart-breaking to me.. just to think of it.. So, when he asked me this, I couldnt say no. I quickly made these delicious, healthy laddus to satisfy his sweet/laddu craving. Then I left.. and my hubby told me after I came back that the little one did enjoy them quite a bit.

2 Cups Moong Dal
1.5 Cups Sugar (powdered) - more if you like sweeter laddus
Ghee as needed

Dry roast the moong dal in a wide pan. When its light browish/pinkish color, turn off the heat. Grind it into powder(very slightly coarse/fine powder is ok). Add the powdered sugar to it. Mix well. Warm up some ghee and add little to some portion of the powder to make it wet enough to shape round balls/laddus with it. Make the laddus while its still warm. Repeat the same with rest of the dal-sugar mixture. Store the laddus in an airtight container. Will keep well for a long time.

The proportions mentioned make about 20-25 small laddus. I think the small laddus are good enough 1 serving size. They melt in your mouth instantly. My son loves these and I think its a great sweet treat and the protein packed moong dal makes me feel less guilty about giving sugar to him :) Enjoy !!

This goes to the Sunday Snacks - Fix It event that I am hosting this month.
