Paasi paruppu maa ladoo

 

 
                              Paasi paruppu Maa laddo is one of the simplest sweet recipe one can prefer to do. It wont take more than 10 mins to do.. At the same time, it is very healthy and nutritious too. Green gram is rich in protein and fiber content. Medical surveys say that more than 70 % of the female population is anaemic.. If we use organic or palm jaggery in the following recipe, it would be a rich source of iron too. If you just feel that your kidoo seems thin then this would be a best recipe for you...you can even make it once in a week and keep it in a air tight container.. I would post the same recipe using ragi  next time..

                              I came across this recipe from a book "Aaram thinai"...I would say it is a must read book for anyone born in Tamilnadu...The author's deep sorrow is that we are losing all our traditional recipes and foods which are so healthy and nutritious...Really hatsoff to this author for this book (was a real eye opener!!!)...and a great applause to our grandmas n their great grandmas for carrying on these treasured secrets to the generations to come...:)...
