A delicious sweet snack from Kerala..

Green Gram(Moong dal sabut) - 1.5 cups
Grated/Dessicated Coconut - 1 cup
Jaggery - 3/4 cup(grated)
Cardamom Powder - 1 tsp
Maida - 1cup
Salt - a pinch
Tumeric - 1/2tsp (optionla)
Oil - for deep frying

Method :-

Pressure cook moong dal with enough water till soft (say 3 whistles).
Once the pressure is gone, take out moong dal in a wide bowl n let it cool.
Mix in cardamom powder n jaggery .
Combine using  your hands and form small ladoos/balls.

Line them on a tray.
Prepare a thick batter using maida,salt,tumeric and water.

Heat oil in a deep pan.
Dip n coat each dal ladoo in the batter using 2 forks and deep fry them(2 to 3 at a time).
Drain on a kitchen tissue.

Serve hot with your evening Tea....Njoy!!!

  • Do not add too much of water in will make it soggy and the ladoos will break while frying.
  • If accidentally the dal ladoos are made soggy..keep them in the fridge for half an hour.Later take them out and  coat them in the batter and fry.
  • If you don't want to use jaggery replace them with sugar.
  • Tumeric is used here for the color..if you want to keep the sukhiyan not use tumeric.
