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.

  1. Alka! Beautiful and simple laddoos recipe idea with Moong dal and gur. Can imagine the aroma of the dry roasted dal as the main ingredient. Something different from the typical besan ke laddoo. Wishing you and loved ones a blessed and fun filled Diwali!

  2. Thanks for the recipe.
    Not an experienced cook, so lots of questions here 🙂
    1. How fine does the jaggery powder need to be? Coarsely ground or very fine?
    2. Can palm jaggery be used for this recipe?
    Will definitely try this after I get your response.
    Thanks.
