Dalia Dal Laddoos

Dalia-Dal (roasted chick peas dal) is more commonly recognized by the mention of “Hurikadle” or “Putanibele” or “Chana dal”. This dal is normally used in the preparation of dry chutney powder, wet chutney in combination with coconut, also garlic wet chutney for masala dosa and also in almost all mixtures/chiwda and such savouries.  In some places, people use it to thicken the gravy for wet masala as well.  Today, I would like to put up the recipe for Dalia Dal Laddoos which taste really yummy and are easy to prepare.

1.Dalia-Dal – 1 cup

2. Pure ghee – Little less than 1/2 cup

3. Sugar – 1/2 cup

4. Resins – A handful

5. Cashews – A handful

    I have a lot of powdered sugar lying around at home. Instead of roasting the sugar and grinding, can I roast the powdered sugar?

      Hi Varsha,

      Please donot roast powder sugar. The reason being that it will turn into syrup soon. The reason to roast sugar granules is that the laddoos will not break easily while eating.
