It's festive season in India and I can see many of my friends on Instagram making different varieties of Indian sweets which made me craving for sweets. I checked my pantry and with the ingredients I got from my kitchen, I made these amazingly delicious maaladu which I used to eat often as a kid in Andhra. This laddoo is the easiest dessert which can be made within no time. A rich, delicious, perfect one for any festive occasion.

There are so many dessert recipes among which these laddoos will stand out and will be a perfect crowd pleaser. Just three main ingredients and theses laddoos are ready. Hope you all will try and let me know how it turned out.


  1. Gram Dal- 2 Cups ( Roasted)
  2. Sugar- 3/4 Cup
  3. Ghee- 1/2 Cup
  4. Cardamom Powder- 1 tsp
  5. Broken Cashew- 2 tbsp


  1. Grind together gram dal and sugar to a fine powder.
  2. Transfer to a mixing bowl. Add the cardamom powder and broken cashews.
  3. In this add the melted ghee and shape into small balls. If the balls are not forming, add little amount of ghee till it forms a firm laddoo.
