Ragi - Moongdal ladoos a nutritious,protein packed ladoos prepared with ragi/pearl millet flour and yellow moongdal. Have you ever combined this both together?, even i didn't thought of this combination before few days, while my daughter asked me a post for her friend Manjula, we talked together for hours and finally we concluded it as this healthy ladoos. This ladoos needs ghee, don't use milk to for making this ladoos. You can also name its as nutritious balls, make some and feed your kids.


1/4 cup Ragi flour
3/4 cup Yellow moong dal
1/2 cup Sugar
1/4 cup Ghee
2 nos Green cardamoms
Few  cashew nuts and raisins


  • Dry roast the ragi flour in low flame until a nice aroma comes out,keep aside.
  • In the same pan, dry roast the yellow moongdal until they turns golden brown.Let it cool completely.
  • Now take the dry roasted yellow moongdal,sugar,green cardamoms together in a mixer, grind for few seconds.
  • Add the roasted ragi flour and grind again, you can either grind bit smooth or bit coarsely.
  • Meanwhile heat the ghee in a vessel fry the nuts and raisins in it.
  • Gradually add the warm ghee to the grounded powder and make medium sized ladoos from the mixture.
  • Have it anytime of the day.
