Hello spring where are you? Yes, I keep asking this since there are thunder storms with heavy down pour every day. It was an unusual winter with completely dry days and nature fooled us all including the trees to bloom with flowers of bright yellow, white, orange and many more when there was just a few days of sunshine. Oh well, mother nature is so unpredictable and so powerful. Seasons change makes my little one who turned two months sleeps even longer! He loves to sleep bundled up tightly in his swaddle and it surely is such a joy to watch him. This also gives me extra time to make something for the sweet tooth; something that is fast, easy and satisfying not to mention it brings back memories when it was always there in our kitchen growing up. Here I am sharing this recipe with you so you can build memories with your family too.
1 cup roasted channa dal powdered
1/2 cup powdered sugar or per taste
1 cardamom pod powdered
2 tbsp ghee
Edible silver for decoration (optional)
Heat ghee in a kadai then add the channa powder, stir until you get the aroma. Now add the powdered sugar, taste and adjust. Then add the cardamom, mix well. While it is warm, roll into small balls, stick edible silver. Let it cool before storing in an airtight container.
NOTE:The roasted channa dal is the one used in making coconut chutney

Thank you Priti, Im super impressed that you are almost the first one to check out the recipe and never fail to add a comment 🙂
Where do you get the edible silver? Thanks.
Shruti, you get it most of the stores in India. Sometimes, even temples sell them. It is very common in Indian sweets, so should not be hard to find it.
I have made besan laddu- never this. Am definitely going to try. BTW; I stumbled on to your blog because I know of Sattu as a flaky white material used for making parathas etc. in Bihar; and I just thought you’d made that at home 🙂
Hey Deepika, I know Satthu means different things in different regions in India but where I come from, this is the recipe 🙂
I would love to know your version too.

Thank you Gayathri. Yes, it is indeed super easy and filling too.
I think ‘Yummy’ would be a small word to describe this beautiful recipe. Absolutely lip smacking!! Excellent work!
Thank you Thank you Payal 🙂
Edible silver? I didn’t even know there was such a thing, but how neat! Love your blog! 🙂
Yes, its very popular in India, rich sweets are not complete without it. In earlier days it was made brutally which I do not want to discuss hence Jain temple’s banned it but these days machinery is used to make it and Im glad.
Bumped into your blog and saw this sattu receipe.. Awesome.. We make it every year for Teej.. My mom sends it from home but this year I will try my hand on it
Thank you Deepa.. I know good old memories surface with some recipes…
