Very simple to prepare this appalu dough, you wont forget to give a try to this dish often.

Bandaru Laddu/Thokkudu Laddoo

Laddoo/Laddu, this popular Indian sweets are our family favourite, yes i never forget to prepare them every year especially for Diwali festival. Laddoos, this sweet balls are usually prepared with fried boondis, sugar syrup with dry fruits. But my today's post is a very popular Andhra sweets aka Bandaru Laddoo. This laddoos was originated in 'Machilipatnam' in Andhra Pradesh which is also known as 'Bandar'. Not to forget that this laddoo is also prepared during auspicious days like Sankranti, Deepavali etc. Though this laddoo calls for besan flour aka gram flour, this laddoo's preparation sounds very much different from the usual laddoos.
