furthermore, i would like to highlight some more tips, suggestions and variations to urad dal ladoo recipe. firstly, i had dry roasted the split urad dal even before i started the recipe. you need to be very careful and do not burn it. keep the flame in low and continuously stir it so that it gets roasted evenly. secondly, i have used split urad dal and grounded to a fine powder. you may skip this step and use storebought urad dal powder to hasten the cooking process. lastly, i have decorated the laddo with just raisins and you can use any type of dry fruits. particularly you can use ghee roasted cashew or almonds to top the ladoo.
