Steamed Moong Ladoo With Oatmeal: Healthy Sweets, Low Fat

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.

  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.
