I have never heard of Maaladu until my marriage. This is one of the seer pakshanam that needs to be kept for Kalyanam or any function in my in laws side. For this year Diwali – My mom made this healthy and delicious sweet. It is very easier to prepare.


Below is the recipe

1. Potukadalai – 1 cup

2. Sugar – 1 cup

3. Ghee – 1/2 to 3/4 cup

4. Cardamom – 1 tsp ( Optional )

5. Cashews – few (Optional)


1) Grind the Potukadalai and Sugar separately in a mixer for fine consistency . In a pan, heat the ghee ( 1/4 cup ) . Mix Potukadalai powder and sugar. Add the warm ghee in to the mixture ( Ghee should be warm enough such that, you should get a shhhh sound when you pour into the mixture ) . Mix it well and make small balls.

You can keep this potukadalai / sugar powder handy and when ever you want to make the maaladu’s you can just warm the ghee and quickly make the  balls.
