|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!
Serve as snack.
Makes 15 laddu.
