  • 2 cups dhuli moong dal (split green gram)

  • 1 tsp cardamom powder


  • To begin, dry roast dhuli yellow moong dal (split green gram) on low heat until it is aromatic and changes color.
  • Remove from heat, allow it to cool, and grind it into a fine powder.
  • Next, keeping the pan on low heat, add the powdered moong dal along with desi ghee or clarified butter.
  • Mix well and cook it on low flame until it turns golden and you can smell the nutty aroma. Do not let it dry out.
  • Remove from heat, transfer into a large bowl and allow it to cool a bit. Do not leave it in the pan or it might burn.
  • While it is still a bit warm, add in artificial sweetener and cardamom powder. You can adjust the sweetness as per your taste.
  • Mix well. Crush the mixture so that it is easy to shape. If it is too dry, add a teaspoon or two more of ghee.
  • My kitchen is a nut-free kitchen. If you are using nuts, you can add them now.
  • Shape the mixture into ladoos of the desired size.
  • The Sugar Free Nut Free Moong Dal Ladoos are ready to enjoy.
