Fresh Avarekalu(Hyacinth beans) ladoos

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi All,
Do you all think that I am feeling lazy to post anything here in the blog!!! Yes and NO. Lazy because I am not trying anything new to post the recipe, No because I am not able to manage the time .
Today I am posting a very unusual recipe. Ladoos made with fresh Avarekalu/Hyacinth beans/Surti Papdi.
This recipe is from my mother which she saw in a cookery show and made it immediately when she was in Pune.
And last week she prepared it when I brought the beans...

Here goes the recipe:

Ingredients :
Fresh beans - 250 gm
Powdered Sugar - same as the powdered beans
Oil to fry the beans
Ghee - 2 tbsp (more or less)
Green cardamom powder - 1tsp
Cashew nuts - 2 tbsp, small pieces(optional)

Clean and wash the beans.
Dry with a cloth or kitchen tissue.
Heat the oil in a kadai and fry the beans till crispy and the raw smell of beans should go.
Transfer on a kitchen towel or tissue to remove the excess oil.
Once cool grind into powder and measure the quantity.
Measure the powdered sugar same as powdered beans.
Mix powdered beans, sugar, ghee and cardamom powder nicely. Add more ghee if you feel its dry.
Add cashews (if adding), make into small ladoos.

Keep Smiling,
