Ram Ladoo

ram ladoo

I can never forget those breezy winters in Delhi. Me and my sister-in laws used to walk through the road in Dwarka, craving for Ram Ladoo and Aloo chat. Though I am fond of all kind of chaat items but these two were my favorite. Hot ram-ladoo topped up with green chutney and grated radish(mooli), has an amazing taste.

But guess what??? I don’t miss Delhi for that matter, since I have started making it at home and it’s very easy to make.

Ingredients:-

For the Ram Laddoo

  • Dhuli moong dal/ yellow lentils-1/2 cup
  • Chana dal/ bengal gram-1/2 cup
  • salt to taste
  • oil for deep frying

For spicy and tangy Green Chutney

  • Mint leaves-1/4 cup
  • Coriander leaves-1 cup
  • Onion-3-4 tbsp
  • Garlic pods-2
  • Green chilies-5-6
  • Lemon juice-1 tsp
  • Amla-1  chopped
  • Rock salt-1/4 tsp
  • Salt to taste
  • Water-1/8 cup
  • Radish grated

Grind together all the ingredients which is mention above to make green chutney using water.And the green chutney is ready.

Method:-

  1. Wash and soak both the lentils separately for 3-4 hours.
  2. Decant the water completely and grind the lentils to a coarse paste.
  3. Mix the lentils and then beat them till the mixture attains a white color and becomes light and fluffy and the mixture should have a dropping consistency.
  4. Heat oil in a pan and using a spoon put the laddoos in the oil. The oil should be hot enough (use medium flame) so that when the laddoos are put they immediately rise to the surface.
  5. Deep fry till golden in color, at a time you can put 7-8 laddoos and remove in another plate .
  6. Serve hot with green chutney and grated radish.(If you want you can also sprinkle some chaat masala on top of it).
