Healthy protein ladoo


Fried/roasted dal (pottukadalai/chutney dal) has a high protein content and jaggery also has proteins.

Ingredients

2 cups fried dal
1 1/2 cups grated jaggery
1 tsp cardamom powder
1 tsp ghee
Roasted nuts and raisins

Powder the fried dal. Heat ghee, add grated jaggery and just about 2-3 tsp water to it. When it melts, immediately add the cardamom powder and fried dal powder. Add nuts, raisins and switch off the stove. Mix well and make ladoos.

I too have a similar recipe in my blog tried from another blogger. I prefer these to maladoos for the low fat content.

Looking for something
