Urad Dal Ladoo Recipe / Ulundu Ladoo Recipe

I am finishing my diwali posts with this ladoo..This is a healthy ladoos which is made with urad dal flour and karupatti. Since this has no sugar and karupatti is the sweetner it is really healthy. You can skip karupattai and add jaggery as well. I hope you will try this out and let me know how it turns out for you..

Preparation Time : 5 mins
Cooking Time : 15 mins
Makes : 10 to 12 ladoos


Urad Dal Flour - 1 cup
Karupatti / Palm Sugar - 1/2 cup grated (U can use Jaggery / Gur)
Ghee - 3 tblspn
Cashewnuts - 2 tblspn chopped finely
Cardamom Powder - 1 tsp


Take karupatti in a sauce pan and add just 2 tblspn of water. Mix well. Heat on a low heat till it is warm and the karupatti is melted. Strain it and set aside.

Now heat 3 tblspn of ghee in a kadai. Add in cashews and fry till golden. Remove and set aside.

In the remaining ghee add the flour and fry on low heat for 5 to 7 mins till the raw smell leaves from it..

Now remove it from heat and add in cardamom powder.

Add in the strained syrup to the flour and mix well. Add syrup till the mix turns little wet enough to form ladoos.

Add in cashews and mix well.

Now let it cool a bit and take a healthy portion from it. Shape it into tight ladoos.
