Maavu Urundai - Moong dal Ladoo

This year Diwali is special because it falls on a Saturday. My husband  and my little girl will be home for celebrations. It does not feel like Diwali here I guess. We love to celebrate Diwali with fireworks. I need to figure out if there are any Diwali fireworks here somewhere. Last year we had just moved and we did not know a lot of people here. This year we do have few friends and I am making whole bunch of sweets and snacks to share with them.

This Ladoo is an authentic chettinad dish and its very easy to make. My mom  used to make this when we were kids.

This  sweet is made of split green gram dal and powdered sugar and little ghee. It Can be done in an hour without much preparation.

Preparation Time:10 min
Making time:40 min
Yields:30 laddos

  • 1 1/2 cup Split green gram dal/Pasiparuppu
  • 1 1/2 cup Sugar.
  • 5 tsp Ghee (use more if required).
  • Roast the green gram dal for 10 min or until raw smell goes off.
  • Cool it before grinding .
  • Grind it in Mixer until its fine .

  • Seive it and if there is a big quantity left over grind the left overs again and seive it.
  • Grind the sugar to a fine powder.
  • Seive it as well.

  • Mix the ground sugar with the dal mixture.

  • Heat the ghee in a large vessel . When it starts to smoke switch the heat off.
  • Add the sugar, dal flour mixture to the ghee and mix well.
  • There should not be any lumps. If there are any lumps break them.

  • Take a handful of the mixture and make a ladoo by shaping it into a ball.
  • Enjoy it with your friends and family.


  • Use a fine seive so that ladoo is not coarse.
  • If you are not able to shape the ladoo add some more ghee (don't use too much).
