Green Moong Dal Ladoo | Pachai Payaru Urundai

Pachai Payaru Urundai, a delicious and healthy ladoo made from the green moong dal and palm jaggery as main ingredients. It's one of the healthiest ladoos that i have made so far and it tastes so great !

If you're looking for a healthy sweet without any white sugar and a lot of ghee, then i would highly recommend to try this ladoo. 

For this ladoo, i have used palm jaggery/karupatti, it gives the nice aroma and taste to this ladoo. But if you can't source the palm jaggery, normal jaggery can also be used. However the unique flavor from the palm jaggery would be missing.
This ladoo tastes so much like the stuffing of the traditional sweet "Munthiri kothu", so if you like munthiri kothu, then i'm sure that you would love like ladoo too.
