1.  Dry Roast the whole moong dal in medium flame for 10 - 15 minutes. After roasting for almost 10 minutes you can smell the aroma. Continue for 3-5 minutes.

2.  Allow the moong dal to cool. Meanwhile you can melt the ghee.

3.  Once cooled, powder the moong dal in a blender. You can add the pottu kadalai / fried channa dal now if you are using it.

4.  Powder the dal in batches to avoid uneven powdering. Add the powdered sugar to the powdered dal and mix well.

5.  Add 1 tblsp of ghee at first and start mixing. Mix thoroughly to avoid any lumps.

6.  Now add the remaining ghee little by little until you can make ladoos using your hand out of the powdered mix.

7.  You will be able to roll the laddoo usually after adding 1 and 3/4 tablespoon of ghee.

8.  If the ladoo does not hold tight and breaks off into powder add little more ghee.
