3 Ingredient Potukkadalai Ladoo | Vegan , GF with step by step pictures

The final dish for the theme of the week – 3 ingredient dishes in Blogging Marathon #85 is this dessert that was made this morning after a small discussion with mom to check if the idea will work out or not!

The idea did work out and it tasted great too!

The 3 ingredients used here are Fried gram dal/Potukkadalai, unrefined cane sugar / karumbu sakkarai and sesame seeds/ellu.

Fried gram dal / roasted gram dal is a protein rich ingredient that has low GI and is also gluten free. It is a good source of dietary fiber. Cane sugar and sesame seeds are good sources of Iron and hence this falls under the healthy dessert category.

And it takes less than 5 minutes to make this dish!!

A simple 3 ingredient dessert

Course: Dessert

Servings: 8
Ingredients
  • 1 cup Fried gram / potukkadalai
  • 1/4 cup Jaggery
  • 1/4 cup Sesame seeds
Instructions
  1. Take all the ingredients in a mixie jar.

  2. Grind to a powder


  3. Transfer to a plate and immediately make the ladoos

  4. Serve / store in an air tight container

Recipe Notes
  • You can increase the sweetness if needed. This measurement was just right for us.
  • Start making ladoo while the mixture is still warm after grinding. So you will not need a binding agent like ghee / milk
  • If you are unable to make it immediately / it won't hold shape, sprinkle milk and make balls / add ghee little by little and make the ladoos.
  • You can also add fried cashews ,raisins etc to the mixture before making the ladoos.
  • I have used a mix of white and black sesame seeds.

  1. Growing up use to eat putnalu (fried gram) and jaggery as a snack. Never thought of a laddu and also like the fact these laddu do not require any ghee to bind it together.

  2. As Usha mentioned we were given putnalu and jaggery for a snack when we went to our grandma’s place. These laddus look so good and wouldn’t mind gobbling a couple.

  3. Love these kind of desserts that take just a few ingredients and few minutes to make. Your pottukkadalai laddoo look so so tempting. I want make them right now 🙂
