|1 & ½ cup||Pottukadalai|
Lets see how to make this Maladdu
Assemble all the ingredients needed for the laddu.
In a mixie powder the Pottukadalai / Split roasted gram / Dalia / Chickpea to a fine consistency along with that one cardamom mentioned. Again powder the granulated sugar too and keep aside. Now we have take equal quantity of both the powder. That is for every cup of powdered pottukadalai flour its 1 cup of powdered sugar. Mix them both in a big bowl.
Break the cashews to small pieces and then fry them in little ghee until golden and add it to the flour mixture.
Warm up the remaining ghee until melted and slowly add the to the mixture. (Ghee mentioned may be slightly more, so add little at a time, don’t pour all at once)
Keep working until it reaches a crumbly texture.
When you press and knead you should be able to make little laddus as shown. That’s the texture we are looking for. Once ready, apply some ghee to you hands and starts making small laddus. They tend to break easily so work it up with ghee.
