Moongdal, Palm Rock Candy Sugar Laddoos/Pasiparuppu Panakalkandu Laddus

I have been posting beautiful diabetic friendly sweets for this week's blogging marathon as i picked Diabetic friendly sweets as theme for this week. After some fabulous steamed sweet dumplings aka kozhukattai, my today's post calls for yellow moongdal aka pasiparuppu. Instead of sugar, i opted for palm rock candy sugar and this healthy rock candy works awesome for making this incredible laddoos. Actually i was bit skeptical to give a try to this laddoos as i dont know how the final result will be. However i dont want to give up and dished out these beauties. Trust me, we just loved this healthy laddoos.

Moongdal, Palm rock candy laddoos, Pasiparupu Panakalkandu Laddu

This laddoos will definitely please everybody's tastebuds, though palm rock candy sugar is used. We always use this candy sugar while making a decocation with dried ginger chunks and few more spices. This rock candy sugar have loads of health benefits and much more superior to the cane sugar candy for their medicinal values. Panakalkandu aka palm rock candy sugar are not that much sweet as like the refined sugar, obviously these sweets balls aka laddoos suits prefect for diabetic peoples with limited consommation.

Pasiparuppu Panakalkandu Laddu

1cup Yellow moong dal
1/2cup Palm rock candy sugar

Heat the ghee and add gradually to the flour-palm candy sugar mixture and turns them as round shaped balls.
