Sunnundalu or Uraddal Laddoo

Sunnundalu is a popular and traditional dish of Andhra. Sunnundalu are nothing but laddoos made by mixing roasted and powdered urad dal, jaggery powder and ghee. These laddoos are simple to make and are very good for children as they contain protiens (in urad dal), iron (in jaggery) and fat (in ghee). Let's see how to make them...                                                        

What you need:

Skinless uraddal (skinless black gram)-2 cups
Powdered jaggery-1 and 1/4 a cup
Ghee-1/2 a cup 


How to make:

1.Dry roast the urad dal on a medium flame for five minutes by stirring in medium intervals. Lower the flame and fry for 3-4 minutes until it gives a nice aroma.
2. Once the dal gets light brown colour, turn off the stove. Allow it to cool and grind into a fine powder.
3. Transfer the flour into a wide bowl and add the hot ghee and powdered jaggery. Mix it well and make lemon sized balls.
4. Leave them for 10-15 minutes to settle down and store them in a dry container.
  Delicious and healthy sunnundalu are ready to eat now :)

Note: We can replace jaggery with sugar. Avoid roasting the dal on a high flame, the laddoos may give burnt smell and at the same time improper roasting of the dal gives stickiness to laddoos.
