Ram ladoo is a popular street food snack from Delhi. It is basically made with round shape balls made with moong and chana dal batter and served with grated radish topping and spicy green chutney. It is a tangy and savory chaat recipe loved by kids and all age groups. Do try this!

The key to making tasty ram ladoo at home are:
  • Firstly, I used 2 types of lentils like yellow moong dal and chana dal. You can also add some urad with it. But the proportion of moong dal is more than other lentils.
  • Grind soaked dal into a thick and smooth paste. So add very little water while grinding dals.
  • Stir grinded batter into one direction so air particles incorporate in the batter and batter become light and fluffy.
  • Vada crispy from outside and soft from inside, but if your vada becomes hard after frying it then add little baking soda to make vada fluffy and tasty.
  • Lastly, Fry vada on medium flame till it becomes crispy and golden brown from both sides.
