Dal Ke Laddoo

We all love the famous street food delight, our very own savory – Dal ke Laddoos (Sweet lentil-based dessert balls). Rakhi happens to coincide with monsoons. With a cuppa or your child’s favorite beverage- a glass full of buttermilk or juice, serve these piping hot laddoos made from nothing but the goodness of Moong Daal (Split Red Lentil), thus high on nutritive content.
