Maa Laadu (Ladoo) / Maa Urundai - Diwali Sweet

This is my first Diwali sweet for the festival this year. It's the simplest of all sweets, with just 3 major ingredients : )

Maa Laadu / Maa Urundai

What You Need -

What you need for Maa Laadu

  • Roasted Gram Dal /Roasted Bengal gram (Pottu Kadalai) - 1 cup
  • Sugar - 1 cup
  • Ghee- 1/2 to 3/4 cup
    • Can substitute half with Vanaspati - Dalda (hydrogenated vegetable fat).
  • Cardamom - 3 pods
  • Cashews (optional)

How To -


  • Powder Roasted Gram dal into a fine powder using an electric mixer.

  • Next, powder sugar.

  • You could add cardamom to one of these (either roasted gram or sugar) and powder it together.
  • Next, take a kadai and heat Ghee (clarified butter) for 3 minutes.
  • Take a big mixing bowl, mix together the powdered pottu kadalai, sugar, cardamom and then pour the hot ghee over this. Be careful as you might hurt your fingers in hot ghee (like I did! )

  • You could use a stainless steel spoon to mix them all together, coarsely first. Then, you gotta use your fingers to make sure they're mixed evenly.
  • Make small lemon-sized balls of this mixture. The ghee helps to hold it all together. That's all. Maa Laadu is ready :)

  • Roast cashewnuts in ghee and stud them onto each ladoo, if you like.
