Minapasunni/Sunnundalu/Laddu with Blackgram

Minapasunni or sunnudalu is a very healthy sweet. One small size ball every morning will give a great relief to the lower back pain problem. Minappu or black gram has lot of iron in it adding jaggery which is also has lot of iron content in it. This will help in increasing hemoglobin levels in the blood and also helps in making bones strong. This is normally given to the just delivered ladies.

My most favourite and easiest sweet also. There are different ways to make it. We can use black gram with skin or without skin and also we can make them with sugar or with jaggery. Laddu made with jaggery are more healthier than made with sugar. Lot of ghee also adds taste to it.

Ingredients:

Black Gram Dal - 1 cup (with skin)
Jaggery - 1 cup
Ghee/Clarified Butter - 1/2 cup

Procedure:

Roast black gram dal. Roast it in the low flame, till gets the aroma of it.
Grate or cut the jaggery.
When cooled grind the black gram into powder.Make the powder neither too fine nor too coarse. It should be in between them. 
Mix jaggery with it and again grind it to mix well.
Melt the ghee and add it to the above. Make laddus of desired size. For each laddu wet the hand with ghee and make them, so that making laddus will be easy. 
Serve them morning and evening. Keep them in an air tight container for 15 to 20 days. 
  • I used to black gram dal with skin, it gives a dark colour to laddus, but they are really healthy. 

  • We can make these laddus with plain black gram dal and sugar as we did it now. 
  • We can make the sugar and black gram dal mix without adding ghee and keep it for further use also.
  • Whenever plan to make laddus just add melted ghee and make them.
  • Those do not like the dark colour can use plain black gram and sugar, they are no less healthy.
