453: Maladu/ Ma Ladoo with New year wishes


  • Every end marks a new beginning. Keep your spirits and determination unshaken, and you shall always walk the glory road. With courage, faith and great effort, you shall achieve everything you desire. I wish you a very Happy New Year.

Maladus are very popular in Tamil Nadu. Call it a cousin of the Besan ladoo!!  Maladu is made from roasted chutney dhal (Pottukadalai).  This is very tasty sweet and easy to make.


Roast gram dal / Dariya Dal / Pori Kadala   1 cup                    .
Sugar                                                      ¾ cup
Cashew nuts                                            2 Tbsp.
Ghee                                                       1  cup (you may not need it all)
Powdered cardamom                                1 Tsp


  • Take a nonstick pan, roast the roasted gram. Just roast till it is aromatic. Do not allow it to change color.
  • Powder, the dal, cardamom and sugar fine separately.
  • Roast the cashew in a 1 tsp of ghee and add this to the mixture.
  • Melt the ghee. Pour this over the mixture and mix well.
  • It might form lumps. Mix it gently with your hands and break them.
  • As it is still warm, start making small balls out of it.
  • Store it in an airtight container for a couple of weeks.


  • You can make the powders and store them separately to whip this up even more quickly.  


  1. simple but delicious looking ladoos. Happy New Year to you Sadhana.
