Lets see how to make this nei urundai
Recipe is pretty easy. Dry fry the yellow moond dal / pasi payir / payatham paruppu in a kadai till it releases nice aroma. Do not brown too much, we need light golden tinge on the dal. Switch off and cool that completely. Combine sugar with cardamom in a mixer jar and make a fine powder. Then powder the roasted moong dal to fine powder. You may sift the moong flour if you want using a fine sieve.
Combine moong flour, powdered sugar & cardamom in a bowl. Heat ghee in a tawa and roast cashews till they are golden and then add that to the flour mixture. Mix using a spoon to a crumbly texture. Roll them into small balls while its still warm. It may appear sticky while making the balls but once cooled for about 15 minutes they become firm.
