डाळीचे लाडू Chanyacha daliche ladu

Roasted chana dal ladus are healthy and easy to make.I am sharing my mothers recipe. 

Roasted chana dal 1 cup 
भुना हुआ चना दाल 1 कप
Jaggery 3/4 cup गूड 3/4 कप
Ghee or vegan butter 2 tsp
घी 2 चम्मच
cardamom seed powder 1/4 tsp
1/4 टीस्पून इलायची पाउडर
Dry fruits mix optional 2 tbsp
2 चम्मच सुखा मेवा कुटा हुआ



Blend roasted chana dal into fine powder. 
Take ghee or vegan butter in the pan. 
Add chana dal flour. 
Roast on a low flame for 5-7 minutes or until slight color has been changed and roasted aroma is released. 
Take in a bowl. 
Add dry fruits mix, cardamom seed powder, jaggery and mix well.
Roll into laddos when the mixture is warm. 
If the consistency is not right you can warm up little bit of ghee or butter and add to the mix. 
This can be stored in an airtight container for up to 4 weeks. 
Dry fruits will add more nutrients to this ladus. 
If you delay the ladu rolling process then it will be difficult to roll ladus so you can place the mixture into pan and warm up for 1-2 minutes which will make it easier to roll.
