The festival of Lights or Diwali is the mostly awaited festival after Durgapuja in our house. During Diwali, every corner of our house is illuminated with Diyas or lamps, the sweet smell of the incense sticks, the sound of fire cracker symbolizes joy and togetherness.
As Diwali is fast approaching, I thought of preparing something which is simple yet delicious and healthy too. This time it was the humble Moong Daal as the main ingredient. Moong Daal and Jaggery are both rich in proteins, iron and fiber making this Ladoo nutritious as well. This is a very traditional dish made with jaggery and moong daal and without much effort. All you need is to roast, grind, mix and make ladoos.
