Two Round Ladoo (laddu, moti choor) From My Neighbor

My neighbor’s son scored 9 As for his SPM and to celebrate the occasion they made some nice Indian (and also Pakistan) dessert, ladoo ( laddu, moti choor) to share with everyone in our neighborhood. These round balls are made from sugar, ghee (clarified butter), whole milk, saffron, cardamom powder, gram flour (besan) and chickpea. They are then soaked in sweet syrup. Ladoos (moti choor) are often made for religious ceremony and as offering to gods at temple. Well congratulations to him for scoring straight As in his exam!

Moonaroo : They taste nice with a tinge of spice flavour

Penang Tua Pui : Should be available in some Penang Indian Restaurants especially near youth park area during Indian festivals.

Josephine : The ones my neighbor made are not very sweet, so there are ok for me.

Foongpc : Ha ha, have to get used to the spices used in Indian cousine. A bit tied up with work nowadays.....very little time to blog but will try to update whenever I can.
