Steamed Moong Ladoo With Oatmeal

Steamed Moong Dal Oats Ladoo - A Light, Healthy & Tasty treat
We all love ladoos, isn't it? And if the ladoos are made with moong dal, who would say no to those delicacies? Nobody! But if you're watching your calorie intake, you try not to indulge in this delicious treat. What if I say you can enjoy this sweet guilt free? Perhaps here is my healthylicious moong dal ladoo recipe.

Moong dal halwa and burfi are a childhood favorite. This delicacy made from yellow lentils usually uses a good amount of clarified butter to get that authentic taste. I must tell you its real taste is completely lip smacking! OMG! My mouth has started to water again at the mere thought of it.

But since I am a health freak and keep a watch on my calorie and fat intake, I decided to alter the original recipe. I hope you remember I have shared moong dal halwa burfi previously - which also uses less ghee.

But this time it was different- I decided to steam the lentil!! Was I disappointed ? Well, initially I thought it may not be a hit, but I was wrong - the delicacy tasted even better the next day - just like boondi ladoo. Can you imagine?

I have seen my mother in law make moong halwa without a drop of ghee or oil. But somehow I did not like that taste!! Opps sorry my dear MIL - who is a diabetic and has stopped eating sweets altogether, but made it instantly upon my request . Love you bau (bau in Odiya means mother).

Here is my take on this traditional delicacy - steamed moong ladoo with oatmeal.

How to make steamed moong ladoo Procedure
moong dal oats ladoo


  1. Soak moong dal for 3-4 hours.
  2. Grind with little water.
  3. Steam the batter for 10 minutes or little longer.
  4. I used my idli steamer for this.
  5. Take a nonstick pan.
  6. Add ghee.
  7. Add a few slivered almonds.
  8. Pour the steamed moong dal. I powdered the steamed moong idlis when they were hot.
  9. Roast on a low flame. This will take some time.
  10. Meanwhile, take milk and water in a pan.
  11. Add elaichi and sugar or gur. I used gur powder.
  12. Keep it on high flame. Let it thicken little.
  13. I did not follow any thread consistency. 
  14. When the moong dal is still roasting, add oat powder and almond meal/powder.
  15. Mix well and keep stirring.
  16. Once roasted, pour the milk-water-gur mixture and keep stirring until everything gathers in the center.
  17. Keep stirring until the dough loses little moisture and does not feel sticky.
  18. Turn off the flame.
  19. Roll into balls. But do not burn your hands.
  20. Enjoy steamed, healthy moong dal ladoos.
  21. I must tell you these ladoos tasted even better the next day - just like boondi ladoo.
  22. I'm loving it.
  23. Here's my moong dal halwa burfi recipe that uses little ghee.
  24. You may want to try chana dal burfi - again a healthier version.

Homemade Edible Powders: Beetroot, Onion, Garlic, Ginger, Lemon, Orange, Sambar, Kurma, Garam Masala

The title says it all. This post is all about edible powders that can be used as flavoring agents, natural color, and to make food visually attractive. What more do we need? Though I am not too much in favor of drying food and storing the same, this is the best option for those days when these veggies are out of season. During the season, please make it a point to enjoy these fresh and flavorful. There's nothing better and healthier than fresh produce, right?

Okay so the idea to make these powders popped up in my mind as I had too many beetroots at home. When nobody was too eager to have them, the best way to still consume these beauties was to sundry them to powder. I did exactly that.





Then I wondered if I can sundry lemon peels into powder just like we do to orange peels. I have been using orange peels as a face pack thus far. But since the baking bug has bitten me badly, I plan to use it as an edible powder for cakes and cookies too. Fingers crossed for the results though, sin…

The Best Multigrain Digestives: An Airfryer Recipe

The best multigrain digestives? I know I have shared too many digestives recipes but this one is my best. To be frank, I experiment, relish, share, and post the same for you all and then forget all about it because it's time to experiment again with new ingredients. So today it was another kind of digestives - relished by one and all. My cookie making spree has turned my cookie hater hubby into someone who has started to munch on these baked beauties.



Before sharing the simple cookie recipe, it is time to go through oats benefits. You are already aware of my love for oats. One reason you rarely find my recipes without this fibrous cereal grain. Did you go through the fiber benefits?











Go to my fiber benefits post to get deeper insight into the need for including fiber in your diet.



Ingredients
1 cup- oat flour
3/4 cup- whole wheat
1/4 cup- bran
1/4cup- ragi
2 tbsp- roasted quinoa powdered (roasted quinoa adds a nutty flavor to the recipe - substitute with almond powder if you do not h…

Diabetic Diet Cake With Watermelon: A Vegan Recipe

While people are still debating whether watermelon is a diabetes-friendly fruit, I still stick to my notion that diabetics can have this fruit for its sheer hydration effect. Not only this, the fruit is loaded with minerals, nutrients, and antioxidants that make it a health-friendly food. However, diabetics with kidney issues should avoid watermelon. Anyway, let's come back to the watermelon cake recipe for diabetics. Well, this cake uses another fruit - banana- which even I do not think is diabetes-friendly. But I went ahead with including a banana for this recipe merely to keep the fat content low. I hope you all know that a banana is a good substitute for an egg for an eggless cake recipe.

Since an egg is also loaded with saturated fat, diabetics should avoid it at any cost. So I had to choose between an egg and a banana for this diabetes-friendly cake, and ended up voting for this humble fruit - which is one of my favorites too. Yes!

When you think of a vegan diabetes-friendl…
