Nei Urundai/Paasiparuppu urundai

When I prepared the murukku, I thought of preparing something sweet to munch along with murukku. I am tired in the eve and hence choose this yummy snack - Nei urundai/paasi paruppu urundai/Ghee balls and prepared this in less than 20 min. With these quantity, I prepared 12 urundais. Next time, planned to do more. Also I was preparing this in a hurry as it was already evening 6.15, so could not take the step wise pictures.


  • Moong dal/Split green gram - 2 cups
  • Cardamom - 4 pieces
  • Powdered sugar - 2 cups
  • Ghee - 1 cup
  • Cashews - 1/2 cup


  • Dry fry the moong dal till nice aroma comes.
  • Transfer it to mixer/food processor, along with cardamom and grind to a find powder.
  • Sieve it one or more time.
  • Meanwhile, in a wok, add 1/2 tsp ghee and fry the cashews and make into small pieces.
  • In a big plate, add the powdered dal, sugar, and cashews and mix it.
  • Heat the ghee and when it is hot, pour to the mix little by little.
  • Start making round shaped balls/urundais.
  • If the ghee is too hot, just dust the balls with the dal flour and make tight balls.
  • Allow to rest for 1 hr.
  • Store in a airtight container.


  • You can use normal sugar and using mixer grinder/food processor, grind to fine powder.
This goes to my event
