Urad Dal Ladoo (Ulundu Ladoo Recipe) a very famous and healthy dessert.
The urad dal ladoo is known as ulundu ladoo in tamil and minapa sunnundalu in Telugu.
It is a very famous South Indian delicacy. The Urad Dal Ladoo (Ulundu Ladoo Recipe) is made with goodness of the urad dal, jaggery and ghee. That’s it!! It requires only 3 ingredients and is so deliciously yummy.
These ladoos are easy to make and are highly nutritious.
Urad Dal is known for it’s highly nutritious value and when it is mixed with jaggery, the benefit multiplies manifold.
I like to use the palm jaggery for making this urad dal ladoo recipe. It is known as Karupatti in Tamil. It is not only tasty but also a very, very healthy alternative. You can even powder this Karupatti and use it in place of white sugar.
If you want, you can even use sugar or the regular jaggery instead of the palm jaggery. But if you have access to the karupatti, then definitely use it.
The Urad Dal ladoo or the ulundu ladoo recipe is generally considered very healthy and given to new mothers or young girls. There is a famous belief that it is good for the back. I am not sure whether it is true or not but it surely is very healthy.
The crucial and tricky part is roasting the urad dal. Roast the urad dal in medium low heat while stirring continuously. If you leave this unattended the urad dal wouldn’t be roasted properly. It doesn’t take long for the dal to be roasted. Switch off the heat when the urad dal starts turning golden brown in color.
Once the urad dal is roasted, allow it to cool. And straight away make a fine powder with either a mixie or coffee grinder. If you think of roasting the urad dal ahead of time, then it doesn’t powder as well. It takes a lot of time to powder it as well. The best time is to roast and cool it down, and then immediately make it into a powder for the best fresh taste.
