well to be honest, for the first look, this ladoo recipe is very much similar to besan ladoo or chickpea laddu. as a matter of fact, if you do not mention the name of moong dal ladoo while serving, i guess it would be easily misunderstood for the other. the texture, taste and also the colour is very similar to the besan ke laddu. yet the use of moong dal and sugar combination makes it a unique one. i personally feel the moong ke laddu is a much better option compared to the other as it is more healthy and also easy to make. with rava ladoo, there are high chances to go wrong especially while it is mixed with sugar syrup and you may not be able to shape. whereas, there is less chance of getting this wrong.

furthermore, i would like to highlight some of tips, suggestions and variations for a perfect moong dal ladoo recipe. firstly, the recipe is actually very simple, yet it involves a critical and tiring step of roasting it in a low flame. there isn’t any alternative for it and you need to roast it for a minimum of 15-20 mins. alternatively, you can try if you can get the roasted moong dal from the store. secondly, add powdered sugar only after the mixture of moong and ghee cools down. do not add it while the mixture is hot as sugar might just melt down. lastly, you can make these ladoo’s with the same quantity of powdered jaggery in the place of sugar. this would make it a healthy alternative.
