Nice recipe and yummy laddu.
can the oil be substitute with something else? butter or ghee perhaps.. if the oil can be substitute, what are the measurement?
Hi Becka, yes you may substitute the oil with similar grammage for ghee or butter. Happy cooking!
U didn’t mention how much dhal flour only 400 ml water
Hi Malini, the dhal flour is listed in the ingredients as 830g. The water used in Step 1 is only 400ml as the remaining 100ml is used in Step 2 to dilute the sugar. Thanks for the spot, we have made the recipe instructions clearer by mentioning dhal flour in the steps. Happy cooking!
