Dry fruit and nut Urad dal laddu is very tasty and healthy sweet recipe. unlike normal urad dal laddu i used half raisin syrup and half sugar to sweeten this laddus.you can also use Dates syrup. if you use Dates syrup you don’t need to add sugar.
This healthy and nutritious Recipe, Courtesy of my best friend PRASANTHI who lives in Chennai. actually she told me to add 3/4 th cup of ghee for 1 cup black gram flour. but to make it more healthier i skipped adding that much of ghee/clarified butter. The taste was slightly different from traditional Urad dal laddus but they were really nice to taste. Try and enjoy….
