Nei Urundai Recipe - Pasi Paruppu Laddu - Moong Dal Ladoo | Easy Diwali Sweets Recipes

Nei Urundai Recipe
Nei Urundai(Moong Dal Laddu) is my MIL's speciality. She always uses green moong dal(paasi payaru) with skin for making this laddu and she makes the best perfect nei urundais according to me, even when she packs from thanjavur I havent seen even 1 laddu break.As its tough to grind green moong dal in our mixer I preferred using yellow moong dal as my mother suggested. This is very healthy sweet that you can make for this diwali especially for kids.Now add on to your todo list of diwali recipes as this is a very easy ladoo recipe !

And I am rushing with the recipes as there is only 1 more week left for Diwali ....:)
