Almond Maa laddoo

I joined few cooking challenges around the web for two main reasons, one was to get to know cuisines and fellow bloggers and second was for time management. I have always been weak on the time management part right from school. I study for tests at the last minute, do record work at the last minute and type status reports at the last minute. That is me and I have never worried about it. But then I started blogging and the last minute didn't seem to work out. And so I joined challenges so that I would learn and be prompt with the posts too.. Well, again I have failed. I have been skipping the HBC for the past two months and as for the secret cooking challenge, here I am with the post when it is near date to reveal this month's secret ingredient. I am really sorry admins, I am gonna try and make it up in the future.

Coming to this months Ssshhh Cooking secretly challenge, I was paired with PJ of Seduce your tastebuds and she gave me almonds and peanuts. I first thought of making halwa but since I was pressed on time, I settled for these easy laddoos. I made this for pappu who never eats nuts just because he needs to work it out with his teeth. I finally had to give in and made these so that he could have his daily nuts intake atleast in the form of a laddoo. He totally loved it and I have already made a second batch.

~*What U Need*~
Almonds - 1/2 cup
Roasted channa dhal /pottukadalai - 1/2 cup
Ghee - 1/4 cup, melted
Sugar - 1/2 cup
Cardamom powder - a pinch(optional)

How I Made it:
In a mixie, powder the almonds, channa dhal and sugar separately. In a mixing bowl, combine everything along with the cardamom powder. Add ghee and mix till it holds shape adding more ghee if needed. Form balls and store in an airtight container.

Serve with love!!!

So thats it Folks...
With Love,

Signs off!!!
