Moong Dal Laddo (sweet Split Green Gram Balls)

In Bengali there is a famous saying "Baro mashe tero parban". This means that we observe so many festivals through out the year. And in these festivals sweets are the most important things.
During these occasions in my home my mother makes these laddos. This is a very favourite dish of mine. I learned to make this from Maa (my mother).
When I made this for the first time I was just 12 years old. Then the laddos were not perfect. But practice and also my mother's tips helped me to make laddos properly.
Dear friends today I am going to share with you my mother's recipe and also her tips. Let's start.
