Nei Urundai - Ghee Ladoo

Due to Diwali every blogger rushes to post the some sweet items.But according to me making sweets is a big task,i never tried it before except kesari.Usually my amma make number of varieties for diwali,thats y i never take a turn towards the kitchen except for eating those items.Now,the scene totally changed,i am in a situation that i myself prepare some items for diwali [toughest job].So i made a call to my amma n ask her,which sweet is soo easy to prepare.My amma suggest me to make my most favourite, nei urundai.My first attempt itself a successful one.Only little amount of  ghee only used to make this.In our home,my amma uses the whole green gram which is to b powdered in the mill.But i used moong dhal instead of green gram. Lets see the recipe to make the delicious nei urundai.Really its very delicious sweet.
                                                        
 INGREDIENTS;
                          Moong dhal   -- 1 cup [100 gms]
                          Sugar             -- 1 cup
                          Ghee              -- 2 to 3 tsp
                          Cardamom     -- 4 nos
                          Cashews         -- 5 nos
METHOD;
                In a pan roast the moong dhal slightly,the colour shouldn't change.
                Till the raw smell goes out roast it and cool.
                Put it the mixie,make it as very nice powder.Set aside
                Grind the sugar,cardamom n cashews together as a nice powder.
                Put the moong dhal powder n sugar powder together in a bowl.
                Mix well together.
                Heat the ghee,add the ghee little by little to the ground mix.
                Make the mix as small balls with the help of ghee.
                Add the ghee while in hot,few drops is enough to make a ball.
                If u add more ghee  u can't  make it as ladoos,so add the ghee
                little by little.
                Now, the delicious nei urundai is ready.
                ENJOY DIWALI WITH THIS SIMPLE DELICIOUS SWEET.
TIPS;
        Make the dhal n sugar as a fine powder.then only we can make it as ladoos.
        Usually it is soo soft,we must hold it tightly while making as balls.
        The ladoos can b easily collapsed,but no problem,again we can make it as
         ladoos with hot ghee.
I am sending this sweet to
                Gayathri's ''Only sweets and desserts'' which was started by pari.
                                                       and
                Sravs ''CC-FESTIVE FOOD''

  2. Thats really an easy recipe for a diwali sweet. I too haven't made many traditional sweets till now. For a whole year after marriage i used to make Gulab jamun for every festival ;-)
    You laddoo sounds delicious too. Similar laddoo with urad dal instead of mung dal is a delicacy in Andhra and my dad's favourite :)
