This gur-moong dal laddoo is easy, quick and ideal for guilt-free chomping.

Gone are the days when desserts and sweets were all about sinful indulgence! Over the years, with more and more people getting conscious about their fat, carb and calorie-intake, we have found several healthier ways to please our sweet tooth. All we have to do is replace the unhealthy elements in a recipe with some healthier substitutes. For instance, we replace maida with atta and oats in a cake, and white rice with black rice or makhana in a kheer. Likewise, we also substitute sugar with jaggery or coconut sugar or dates to make the sweet-treat healthier.

We found one such dessert recipe that gives the traditional moong dal laddoo a healthier spin. It needs just 5 minutes to prepare this protein-rich sweet-treat. This recipe has been shared by vlogger Parul Jain on her YouTube channel ‘Cook With Parul’. Let’s take a look!

In this recipe, sugar is replaced with jaggery, which is nutritious and a good source of antioxidants and minerals. And the ones keeping a check on their weight and blood sugar level can use dates (khajoor) instead. Alongside, Parul also used a unique cooking technique to reduce the amount of ghee in the recipe.

Here, the moong dal is cleaned in running water (not soaked) and dry roasted in a pan. It is then blended in a grinder with jaggery, into a soft and moist mix. You will then have to add some ghee, cinnamon powder and almonds to the mix and make small laddoos out of it.
