Tasty and delicious Ram Ladoo recipe or Lentil fritters is an all time favorite tea time snack. This insanely crispy and crunchy moong dal fritters hails from the streets of Delhi and is a mouthwatering savory snack!
Hello, Delhi bellies…. here comes the favorite street food of Delhi- Ram Ladoo recipe or Gul-gulle. Just like Chole Bhature, and Matar Kulcha, this is another yummy delicacy from Delhi. If you are from Delhi, you can’t miss on this one.
Outside every shopping mall or a famous shopping place like Lajpat Nagar, Chandi Chowk, vendors set up their mobile stalls and sell these tempting ladoos dipped in chutneys and topped with shredded radish.
Yummy and spicy-food lover’s delight!
Ladoos, on their own, are not spicy. Spicy flavor comes from the chutneys and spices that top these Ram ladoos.
These ladoos takes on the flavor of shredded radish, chutneys and this is what makes this dish a yummy and lip-smacking chaat.
Crispy and crunchy fritters are a pure bliss on a rainy day! They taste –
- super yum
- comforting and
- is just perfect for the weather.
And not to mention, they are gluten-free and vegan too!
Now, onto the recipe!
Nothing complicated, a very simple and straightforward recipe. Soak dals (lentils) for 3-4 hours and after the soaking time ground them to a fine paste.
Do not add water while grounding the lentils. This will make the mixture runny and difficult to handle. Feel free to add or subtract ingredients to suit your taste.
Later add all the ingredients mentioned under ‘ladoo ingredients’ and fry them like round balls. Baking soda can be substituted with 1/2 teaspoon of Eno.
I have also displayed the non-fried version in the appe pan. Only difference – the appe ones turned a bit dense due to prolonged cooking. But both were equally tasty and crunchy.
Traditionally Ram ladoos are more prominent in size, but I prefer bit-sized ladoos so have customized according to taste.
This is a great make-ahead recipe!
Prepare the ladoos in advance. Use an airtight container to store the ladoos.
When ready to serve, warm up in a microwave, and arrange on a plate.
Garnish with shredded radish, chutney and serve hot.
