Putani hittina laddu | Roasted split gram laddu – No cook

I’m celebrating!🥳

What you ask?!

There are so many reasons… Where do I start?!🤔 The weekend gone by was really special in many ways.

🔸It’s been a year since I’ve been on a low sugar diet. Except for straying from the diet past couple of months(…blame it on the mango season😆), followed very religiously and the results have been rewarding.😇

🔸 It was a cousin’s first wedding anniversary. My best wishes to the happy couple. 💕 Yeah, the same guy during whose wedding, I ate so many desserts that I decided to quit sugar from the very next day! 😆 That was the best decision I made in terms of dieting.

🔸I crossed a milestone on my blog … 5️⃣0️⃣ blogs in a span of less than three months. Not that I was keeping a count… WordPress tells me so.😊

🔸 Best of all, it was my sister’s birthday. The best sister one could ask for!🥰 We have so many memories together and one of those happens to be making these super duper delicious, quick and no cook putani hittina laddus (roasted split gram laddus) whenever we craved for something sweet.


Roasted Chana Dal is also called as daria dal, roasted split gram, puffed gram, phutana, pappulu / putanalu pappulu in telugu, putani / hurigadale in kannada. Roasted gram is rich in manganese, folate, protein, dietary fiber, copper, phosphorous and iron.

If we girls could make them when we were little… so can you! Do give it a try.

Recipe makes about 11-12 laddus


  • Roasted chana/putani powder – 1cup
  • Powdered sugar – 3/4cup
  • Fresh grated coconut – 1/4cup
  • Cashew nuts – 2tbsp, broken pieces
  • Poppy seeds/khus khus – 1tsp
  • Green cardamom – 2, powdered
  • Fresh cream – 2tbsp
  • Milk – 1tbsp

For garnishing

  • Cashew halves – 11 to 12
  • Poppy seeds to roll laddus in (optional)


  1. Mix all the ingredients together and form laddus.
  2. Garnish with a cashew half towards the end of shaping the laddu. That’s as simple as it gets to make putani hittina laddu.
  3. Rolling laddus in poppy seeds at the end is completely optional.

I made these Putani Hittina Laddus again to celebrate milestone of reaching 10k followers on Instagram. I can see my growth during this past year, in terms of how I capture and present my creations. What do you think?
