Minapa Sunnundalu (Urad Dal Laddus)

This is a famous Andhra delicacy made with pure ghee. These are very easy to prepare and taste superbly delicious. Urad Dal is considered to give strength to the backbone.


  • 1 cup Black Gram (Minappappu) (Urad Dal)
  • ½ cup Sugar
  • ¼ cup Ghee (Clarified Butter)
  • A few cardamom seeds/powder (Optional)


Dry roast urad dal on a med-low flame until it turns golden brown in color. Then transfer to a plate and allow it to cool down.

Later grind the dal into a fine powder, add cardamom seeds if using and keep aside.

Also powder sugar finely and mix with powdered dal.

Melt ghee and pour this hot ghee on top of the urad dal mixture. Mix well with hand (yes, you can handle it) until ghee mixes well with the dal mixture.

Don’t let the mixture stand for a long time as it tends to dry soon. Take small portions of the mixture and shape into balls.

Arrange them on a plate to dry for some time and enjoy the tastiness of these aromatic laddus.

Hi Pavithra,

I never tried with urad flour. So I am not sure how they would taste. Please go ahead and try with urad flour and let me know how they turned out :)
