Pesaru pindi Laddu (moong dal powder laddu)
This is my favorite laddoo. These laddoos are generally made at Batukamma festival (a 9 day festival which comes before Dussehra navratri).
My mom got pesarupindi from India. It is generally made in the mills or Ghirni places. We roast a little moong dal and then take it to Ghirni place outside to make it good and smooth powder.
I think you can even make the powder in normal grinder also. So here goes the recipe:
Pesaru pindi (Moong dal powder) - 1 cup
Grinded sugar (or confectioner's sugar) - 1 cup
Ghee - to make laddoos
Method of Preparation:
Mix the moong dal powder, sugar in a bowl.
Heat the ghee and add it to the above powder.
Make laddoos by taking the mixed kind of solid powder in hands and pressing softly to make it to balls shape.
Your mouth watering and tasty laddoos are ready.
