Putnala Laddu (Dalia/Roasted Chickpeas Balls) – Diwali Special

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.

Check out what I did for last Diwali!!
