Still I have 1/2 packet in the freezer that I have to use before expiry date. I didn’t prepare any Ladoo with Roasted Channa dal  for a long time. Remember eating during School days as a Dessert in Lunch Box or after School snack. Usually it is prepared with Sugar or Jaggery , Ghee and Coconut. Instead of Sugar and Jaggery I used raisins for sweetness and Dates for Binding the Ladoo. Need only tbsp of Ghee for aroma and taste . Cardamom is Vanilla Bean in Indian Desserts. Adds Sweet aroma to any  Dessert . Taste the mixture before binding Ladoo’s , if needed add some Powdered Jaggery . We like a little bite in Ladoo’s. So I added chopped Cashews and Pistachio’s .
