This is the only sweet my aachi (grandma) & mom makes for every diwali..This is one of the easiest & healthy sweets..We call this as “Neivilangaai “ . People from tirunelveli may know this name..But the common name is Payatha maavu urundai.. Maa ladu is also similar to this.Fried gram dal(pottukadalai) is used in maaladu whereas moong dal is used here. Else the same.It can be made in ten minutes.. Include this healthy laddu in ur diwali menu . Try n let me know how it turned out.I have given the recipe of Maa ladu in the "Notes" section...
Yields 10 medium sized laddu..
For Maa ladu :
Powdered Roasted gram dal / pottu kadalai - 1 cup
Powdered sugar - 1/2 - 3/4 cup
Ghee - 1/3 cup ( takes less than this quantity)
Cardamom seeds - 3 nos ( powdered)
Fried cashews - few
Dry roasting the dal is optional. I don't roast it. Powder the dal first and then sugar.. Mix them well. Add hot melted ghee little by little .Spare some ghee. Once warm , mix with ur hands and make balls. If u r not able to shape it or if u get cracks , add little more ghee..
