Moong Dal Laddoos

These are called “Pesara Laddoos” or “Pesara Sunni Vundalu” in Telugu. We usually prepare these during festive seasons.

Ingredients: (makes 12 medium laddoos or 6 big laddoos)
  • 1 cup yellow Moong Dal (Split Green Gram) (Pesara Pappu)
  • ½ cup Sugar
  • ¼ cup Ghee (Clarified Butter)
  • ¼ tsp Cardamom Seeds


Dry roast moong dal until it turns reddish brown in color. Keep aside to cool.

Powder the sugar in a blender and keep aside.

Grind the roasted moong dal into a fine powder. Mix it with the powdered sugar, add the cardamom seeds and mix well.

Melt ghee and pour into the prepared dal mixture and mix well. When the mixture is still warm due to the warm ghee, make laddoos (balls) out of it.

Leave the laddoos on a plate to dry and harden. These laddoos can be stored in an airtight container up to 20 days.

I am sending these laddoos to “Sweet Series – Chikki and Laddu” event being celebrated at Mythreyee’s place.

I am also sending this to “Sunday Snacks - Fix It” event hosted by Pallavi.
