MAALADOO | POTTUKADALAI URUNDAI |MALADOO RECIPE

Maladoo | Maaladoo is a sweet dish made for diwali or janmashtami . It is made with pottukadalai |roasted gram and my grandma always tells it is very healthy for kids. I have few extra packets of pottukadalai left as my friend passed it on to me as she shifted from here. So i wanted to try the Maladoo which is made with roasted gram. It turned out very well and it got over on the same day it is made. Try out this easy Maladoo recipe .

Note:
  • Sugar can be reduced 2-3 tblsp less if you want it little less sweet.
  • In that case reduce 1 tblsp of ghee
  • If you feel the mixture is not binding after adding ghee, sprinkle 1 tsp of milk and bind.
  • But adding milk will reduce the shelf life of the maaladoo.
