Menapa Sunnundalu /Urad Dal Ladoos

Menapa Sunnundalu  /Urad Dal Ladoos:

Another variety of Simple and tasty sweet. The only trick to make this tasty is roast the urad dal just nice and  add enough of good quality ghee. And you are there.

The source of this recipe is from my Mom, used to make enough of these to satisfy our taste buds. But yet we used to fight for the last bit. :)

Here you go with the recipe.

Urad Dal : 1 cup
Sugar : 1 cup
Cardamon Powder - 2 tspn
Ghee roasted nuts : 1/3 cup (Optional)
Ghee: 1/2 cup (or enough to bind the mixture)

1) Dry roast the urad dal till good aroma is out or slightly golden brown. (Make sure you keep stirring so that the urad dal is evenly roasted) and keep aside to cool
2) Powder sugar and urad dal separately and keep aside.
3) Now, heat the ghee to melt and make sure you don't heat it too little or too much.
4) Mix the two ground powder (Urad dal and sugar) together and add cardamon powder and the nuts into it.
5) Then, pour the hot ghee on the mixture.
6) Use a spoon and mix the ghee and incorporate all together.
7) Using you hands make lemon sized balls and they are ready to eat.

Make sure the ghee is just nice to bind the ladoos.
Do not burn the ghee, the taste and smell will be different.
