It’s a new year!!
And it’s not so cold outside (though winter!!) which is best part to talk about in my food photography life. Back in 2012 when I started blogging, little did I know about photography and lighting, and in those days I never even bothered about SUN light when I set to cook blog food. Now, in my 4th year of food blog as I get up in the morning, I normally stand next to the window to check potential light and it’s clarity. If I predict it to be cloudy and possibility of SUN being hidden is more, in such case I straight away drop the idea of cooking for blog. These beautiful, golden yellow sweet ball’s magic happened on a day when SUN was pretty good and bright though it was winter.
Moong dal laddu is a super easy sweet thing that can be after-school snack for your children, a tasty sweet in your lunch or any time, feel good edible when lazying around. My 4 year old son was craving for some sweet things and he was constantly demanding the same. But I was sort of looking for dual role sweet thing like it should attain his demand while being able to find it’s place here in the blog. Thus super delicious moong dal laddu have become my world of food in true sense.
When I made these balls for the first time, I was skeptical as my son really likes them or not. Because he is very choosy when it comes to Sweets, his specifications are like the laddu should be very soft, easily bite-able and it should never turn hard for the life time. Do you remember rava laddu? that turned bit hard over a period of time and he straight away refused to eat them.
Moong dal laddu is soft, has the crunch of sugar powder and it just melts in your mouth. The ghee makes the laddu firm while shaping and enhances taste by it’s aroma. To sum it up, right now I am drooling to eat them and is there a better way to start new year than a sweet laddu like this??
