Sunnudalu is a traditional Andhra sweet which is made during festivals and baby showers.It is very nutritious and involves very few ingredients.I usually make this for my daughters and everyday without fail i give them one in the evening.Its been a while i made them and i was told by mom and other relatives to make them for my daughter who was hospitalized for 3 days due to high temp and she lost 4 kgs of weight,as such she is thin and now she was become very weak.The good thing is now she is having her summer break from school so i can utilize this time to give her healthy food with enough rest at home.This laddu my mom made for her and here goes her recipe



Udad dal 1 cup
Rice 3 tbsp
Jaggery 1 cup
Ghee 1/4 cup

Dry roast udad dal until light brown colour and remove from the pan as even after switching off the stove the hot pan still fries the dal and dal turns into dark brown colour (it doesn't taste good).Immediately after switching off the flame take the udad dal on a plate and spread it to cool.

In the same pan dry roast rice until light brown colour and add that to the udad dal.

Let both completely cool.

In a mixer grind both into powder not completely soft but a little coarse.

Grind the jaggery on a paper with a mortal (i don't grind jaggery in the mixie as it tends to leave water when grinded with the dal and rice.

Add the jaggery to the dal and rice powder.Now slowly add ghee and make round balls.The amount of powder to take in your palm depends on your palm size.

Let it dry for sometime before you store in a air tight container.
