GREEN GRAM LADDOOS

Ingredients

green gram (roasted & ground) - 1 cup
icing sugar - 1 cup
ghee - 1/4 cup
cashew nuts for garnishing

Method

Roast & Grind the Green gram:

Heat the frying pan and roast the Green gram till it becomes light golden color. You get a sweet aroma when done.
Let it cool.
Dry grind the gram till it becomes soft powder.
Fry the cashew nuts in one tbsp of ghee till golden brown.
Add 1 cup of (roasted & ground) Green gram powder to 1 cup of icing sugar.
Heat the ghee and add it to the above mixture little by little, constantly mixing it.
Add ghee till you get the right consistency wherein when you make the ladoos with your hand, it should just hold together. Be careful. Too much ghee will make it soggy and spoil the taste. Too less ghee will make the ladoos crumble and will give a 'powdery' odour.
Now insert one roasted cashewnut into each ladoo.
Serve warm or cool. You can store it for several days. You can always keep some quantity of fried & roasted Green gram. This would come in handy if you have surprise guests.
You can use powdered sugar instead of icing sugar too.
