Maa Laadu:

I hope all of you are busy preparing for Krishna Jeyanthi/Janmashtami and few of you are celebrating the same. Best wishes from Kitchen Kathukutty on this special occasion. I was away from blogging for quite a few days and it happened so unexpectedly. My grandmom fell sick and it took some time to get things settled.I wanted to post a lot of recipes which I had tried for the upcoming festive season. But unfortunately couldn’t and now I am posting one of the simplest and all-time favourite festive season recipe of our family. My son just loves it. this lot was prepared by my mom for my son and you can find some small cracks in them due to travel . My camera had a small damage and I missed a few pictures including the step by step pictures of this recipe.

I shall soon update them when I make it next time. Check out other recipes for this festive season here.All recipes would be mostly prepared without sugar/maida/milk to maake it more healthy.We call this Cheeni Urundai at home and it is also called maa laddu/maa ladoo/pottu kadalai urundai or pori kadalai urndai.This is very simple sweet which can be prepared with just three ingredients.
