Chana Dal Laddus - పచ్చి శెనగపప్పు సున్నుండలు

I prepared these delicious and aromatic laddus on Srirama Navami Day.

Ingredients: (Makes 26 small laddus)
  • 2 cups Bengal Gram (Chana Dal, పచ్చి శెనగపప్పు)
  • 2 cups Sugar
  • ½ cup Clarified Butter (Ghee, నెయ్యి)
  • Few broken Cashews
  • Few Cardamom Seeds
  • Few Raisins


Dry roast chana dal until it turns golden brown in color. Keep aside to cool down.

Later grind chana dal + sugar into a fine powder. Keep aside.

In a pan heat ghee and add cashews + raisins + cardamom. Sauté until cashews become golden brown in color and raisins bubble up. Pour this mixture on top of the chana dal – sugar mixture and mix well with spoon as the ghee will be so hot.

Allow to cool down a bit and mix well with hand. Take small portions of the chana dal mixture and shape into balls.

If the mixture remains little dry, add a little amount of milk (1 or 2 tbsp) and mix well. Don’t add too much milk as it will make the mixture watery.

Place the shaped laddus on a big tray and allow the laddus to harden for some time.

Enjoy the yummy laddus!!

Hi Uma,
This is my first visit to your blog. I got the address while blogging the holycowvegan.net. I too make these laddoos. Yours look nice and has a grainy texture which I love. Is 1/2 a cup of ghee not less for 2 cups chana dal flour?

God Bless.
