With Diwali around the corner, we all would definitely think about making some sweets/snacks to celebrate the occasion. Here is one such sweet I made today for the coming Diwali. This is a very easy and yummy laddu made with Putnaala Pappu/Dalia/ Roasted Chickpeas. I still have some other yummy things in mind for Diwali. I want to prepare them on the day of Diwali. I will post them after that!!
Now let’s have a look at the recipe:
Ingredients:(Makes 10 medium Laddus)
- 2 cups Putnaala Pappu (Dalia/Roasted Chickpeas)
- 1 ½ cups Sugar (or more according to your sweet buds)
- ½ cup Ghee (Neyyi, Clarified Butter)
- Some Cashews, halved
- Some Raisins
- Some Cardamom Seeds/Powder
Mix dalia + sugar together and make into a fine powder using a blender. Keep aside.
In a pan, heat ghee and add cashews + Raisins and fry for some time until cashews turn golden brown and raisins puff up.
Pour this hot ghee on top of powdered dalia + sugar mixture. Add cardamom powder/seeds to the mixture. Using a spoon mix the dalia powder well until it absorbes the hot ghee.
Let it cool down a bit (not too cold) and take small portions of the mixture and shape into balls. Repeat the same process with entire mixture.
Place on a plate to dry for some time and store in an airtight container. These can stay fresh up to a week to 10 days.
Enjoy the delicious laddus with much pleasure.
