Curbing that 4 O’ Clock sugar rush is a big thing to me! When I stock my pantry with only picky healthy ingredients…gosh, I am saved! I won’t be carried away to make any unhealthy choice like pastries-cookies-chocolates! Good, to keep a track of what I put on the shelves, I started post-it notes, clues and cheat cards to keep me away from anything ‘Sugary’!!!
Its needless to say’ that whole lentils/ whole grains are packed with extra-vitamins and good fiber. Well, for this recipe’ I chose, Black Gram and traded white refined sugar with that of brown one’…kool huh! Very simple to whip in minutes…we can make it’ just like that:)
Black Lentils/ Karuppu Ulundhu 1 cup
Brown sugar 1/2 cup
Cardamom pods 3
Milk 2 teaspoons
Ghee/oil few teaspoons
Dry toast the lentils and cardamom pods. Powder the same coarsely.
Now, mix all the remaining ingredients to it. Bring them into a dough. Divide equal parts and shape them into tiny laddus.
One can cover and place them in fridge for perfect solid laddus. However I end up eating immediately:)
