Instant Moong Dal Ladoo – Kids Lunch Box / Dessert /After School snack

Moong Dal is a simple Dessert recipe prepared with Roasted Moong Dal and Sugar. In today’s recipe I took a little help from store bought flour because I’m not able to grind  Dal into a fine Powder . Tried with store bought flour and they turned out delicious.  So no need of Roasting Dal and Grinding. Roast the flour on medium flame till rawness goes( Say 7 to 10 minutes).Instead of Sugar I used Jaggery and 2 tbsp Ghee. We don’t need more Ghee and 1/2 tbsp for Binding Ladoo’s. Check the Procedure how to make Ladoo’s with Less Ghee. These  ladoo’s are different in taste and texture because I added few more ingredients for an interesting taste. They are tasty and you can stop eating One. Here is the recipe :
