Maa laddu process
Preparation method:
  1. Grind roasted gram / pottukadalai in a mixer grinder to a smooth powder. Set aside.
  2. Same way grind sugar and cardamom seeds in a mixer grinder to a smooth powder, set it aside.
  3. Fry cashew nuts in little ghee till they are golden brown in color. Set aside.
  4. Take a mixing bowl, add ground roasted gram, ground sugar, fried cashew nuts along with ghee and mix well.
  5. Now heat the remaining ghee over medium flame and slowly add to the above mixture till you get the right consistency that lets you make lemon sized balls. Do not add all the ghee in one shot, make sure you add little at a time.
  6. While it is still warm, make lemon sized balls out of the dough and store it in an airtight container for a week. yummy maa laddu is ready.

  • You can alternatively dry roast the roasted gram and then powder it, but it is completely optional.
  • Make laddu balls while the dough is still warm otherwise it will be too hard to make a perfect ball.
  • Add hot ghee little by little in the ground mixture while making laddu.
