Sunnundalu with Jaggery

Sunnundalu or Minapasunni is a very healthy sweet. One small size ball every morning will give a great relief to the lower back pain problem. Minapappu 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 haemoglobin levels in the blood and also helps in making bones strong. This is one of the confinement food.(given to delivered ladies after  11/2 to 2 month).

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 for Sunnundalu :

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

To prepare Sunnundalu :

1. Grate or cut the jaggery.
2. Roast black gram dal in the low flame, till gets the aroma of it.
3. Switch off the flame and let it cool for 10 mins. When cooled grind the black gram into powder. Make the powder neither too fine nor too coarse. It should be in between them.
4. Make Jaggery syrup by adding required amount of water. Mix jaggery syrup and blak gram powder.
5. Melt the ghee and add it to the above mixture. Make laddus of desired size. For each laddu wet the hand with ghee and make them, so that making laddus will be easy.  Keep them in an air tight container and serve them morning and evening.

Tips / Notes:

·        If we use 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. when u use sugar make it powder and to make laddu use melted Ghee. 
·        We can make the sugar and black gram dal powder mix without adding ghee and keep it for further use also.
·        Whenever plan to make laddus just add melted ghee and make them.
