(Motichoor Ladoo with Channa Dal)

Jump to recipe ↓

Motichoor Ladoo is a delicious ladoo made with tiny boondis. It is very juicy and tasty. It is loved by many. However, making it might be a tedious task. One day one of my friend suggested a new ladoo recipe that looks like the motichoor ladoo. She said it was a great alternative to making a motichoor ladoo using channa dal. I was very curious about that.

The very next day I tried out the recipe that she shared. The results were amazing. The ladoos came out perfectly. The only thing I missed was the juiciness of the traditional motichoor ladoos. Other than that, these ladoos looks and tastes great. It can be made easily and enjoyed any day. I encourage everyone to try it out once.
