Print Friendly and PDF
moong dal ladoo
I was not very fond of sweets during my childhood and I used to eat only a few varieties of sweets and this Moongdal Ladoo(Pesara Ladoo) is one of them. My mom prepares it quite well and its difficult for anyone to stop at just one. My mom gives me the roasted moong dal flour when I visit her and I store it for several months in the refrigerator.If we have the flour ready, preparing these ladoos does'nt take much time.

When my parents visited us a few months back, I had asked my mom to prepare this ladoo so that I can post it in my blog.Though she prepared them in a large quantity, I could not take the pics immediately and after finishing almost half of what she made, I pushed myself to take the pics. Last time she visited us, she had prepared a few namkeen varieties which I would post soon.

  • Roasted moong dal flour can be stored for 4-5 months when refrigerated. You can make it in large portion and make ladoos when needed.
  • These laddus can be stored for over a month and hence store it in an air-tight container.
  • If you find it difficult to make laddus out of it and the mixture is dry,feel free to add 3-4 tbsp melted ghee to it and mix again and then start making laddus.
  • The addition of fried nuts in the ladoos make them taste extremely delicious,so I highly recommend to use them and not to skip them.
  • You can add 1/4 tsp Cardamom powder to the moong dal powder-sugar mixture.It adds a nice flavor and taste to ladoos.
