Payathu Maav Laddu|Mithai|BM#14

I had some left over Payatha maav( Green Gram dhal) flour that i bought for my son, which i use to bathe him with that. I almost used it for 14 months and now i have stopped using them.I had some left over flour and decided to do this urundai (sweet). Usually in India, they say giving bath for babies with such flours is good for their skin.
1 cup of Green Gram dhal flour(Payathu Maav)
1 cup Powdered sugar
2 table spoon melted ghee
Little raisins and cashews

Dry roast the green gram flour until the raw smell goes away and nice aroma comes out of it.Switch of the stove.
Mix the powdered sugar along with the green gram dhal powder.
In a small pan heat the ghee and add the cashews and raisins and allow it to turn mild brown and switch off the stove.
Mix the hot ghee with the mixture and mix well.
Form into small laddoos when it is warm itself. Otherwise it is difficult to form laddoos.

I am totally not happy with the photo today. Hopefully will upload some better photo next time.
Lighting was bad.
