Paasi payaru ladoo

Whole green gram (பாசி பயறு) ladoo  is similar to nei ladoo. During this long weekend we had a snow storm and I wanted to make something nice for the evening snack quickly with simple ingredients. I had a pack of whole moong flour in hand, which I wanted to make use of soon. Then it came to my mind about nei ladoo made of moong lentil. Then I tried a similar version and got this flavorful ladoos. I love this sweet very much because of the lesser time consumption and wholesome ingredients. I am glad that hubby too appreciated this very much.
Hope you all like it !
Paasi payaru laddu

Moong flour ladoo ingredients

whole green gram flour - 2 cup
brown sugar - 1 cup
(or) jaggery / white sugar
ghee - 2 tbsp or more *
ghee -  1/2 tsp (for shaping ladoo)
cardamom - 3
shredded coconut - 2 tbsp

Dry roast whole moong flour (paasi payaru mavu) till it smells good (2 - 3 minutes in medium flame).
(We can buy the moong flour in any grocery store or we can dry roast whole moong and get them powdered in a mill. But dry roasting is very important).
Melt 2 tbsp ghee and add to the flour.
In the vessel which we melt the ghee, roast the shredded coconut and add to the moong flour.
Powder the cardamom seeds and add it to the flour.
Put the brown sugar and mix well. Sprinkle little milk or water and knead gently, so that it looks wet. Don't add too much water.
*(If we are planning to make this laddoo as gift / to be consumed later, it may need more shelf life. Then avoid water and make it purely in ghee).
Apply pressure and make balls of equal size.
Let them cool and store in airtight container.
Green gram ladoo is ready!

Serving suggestion:
Serve as snack.
Makes 15 laddu.
