  • Make sure to use the good quality jaggery, if the jaggery has any impurities then make a syrup with little amount of water, strain and use it. In that case, you may not need the mentioned amount of ghee or no ghee at all. That too tastes good.
  • Dont grind the dal mixture into too fine,it makes the ladoo sticky while eating.
  • Adding rice helps to avoid the sticky texture of the ladoo.
