Ram Ladoo

Ram Ladoo is a popular street food in Delhi. The origin of the name is not known. The speciality of this dish is that it is served garnished with grated radish and it’s tender leaves. A spicy mint chutney is drizzled on the Ram ladoo just before it is served.


200 gms Moong Dal

100 gms Chana dal

4 green chillies chopped fine

1 inch long piece of ginger grated

2 tbsps finely chopped coriander leaves


Oil to fry the Ram Ladoo.


Wash and clean the moong and chana dal and soak them together for 5-6 hours in enough water. Drain and grind till fluffy without adding much water. I use the wet grinder for the same. If using the mixer, grind in small batches.

Tip the batter in a bowl and add salt to it along with green chilli, ginger and coriander leaves. Mix the ingredients well . Whisk the batter thoroughly.

Heat oil in a pan. Pick up a small portion of the batter and drop small balls of it into the hot oil. Fry around six to seven ladoos at a time. Keep on turning them so that they fry evenly… Always fry on a medium flame. Drain the ladoos once they take on a golden brown hue. Finish off similarly with the remaining batter.

Grate a large radish and mix 1 tbsp of coriander leaves and finely chopped tender radish leaves( optional) into it.

Serve the Ram Ladoos with mint chutney and grated radish.
