Minapa Sunnundalu/Urad Dal Laddoo

Sunnundalu, this sweet is quite a popular one in Andhra, with just three ingredients you can make this healthy sweet in a jiffy. Sunnundalu or minapasunni is quite a healthy sweet, urad dal are in rich in iron and its quite advise to feed young gals with this laddoo. One small ball every morning will definitely keep you away from the lower back pain problem. This laddoo helps a lot in increasing haemoglobin levels in blood and makes the bone strong. Though my today's post goes for urad dal laddoo with sugar, some makes this cute balls with jaggery. Laddoo made with jaggery are more healthier than the sugar, however this laddoos are dangerously delicious coz of the use of ghee.
