Delhi Street Food Ram LadooRam Ladoo is a popular street food made with fluffy lentil fritters that are topped with green and sweet chutnies.

For the final day of this month’s blogging marathon under ‘All that’s round – is Laddoo?’ theme, I have a savory ladoo recipe. I didn’t read Valli’s note about the theme and I was under the impression that they all had to be sweet preparations. But then I saw my fellow bloggers making savory ladoo and the first thing that came to my mind are these Ram Ladoo.Delhi Street Food Ram LadooDelhi Street Food Ram LadooI saw the recipe for Ram Ladoo for the first time on Sapana’s blog. I pinned it right away and had been planning to make them for a very long time. Finally I got to make them for this theme and I wasn’t disappointed at all. I love any and all chaat dishes and this was no different.Delhi Street Food Ram LadooDelhi Street Food Ram LadooRam ladoo are made with lentils, a combination of moong and chana dal. Soaked dals are ground until smooth, mixed with spices and deep fried until golden. The fritters are quite addictive. They are airy and fluffy on the inside; crispy on the outside. These are perfect to eat just as is.Delhi Street Food Ram LadooDelhi Street Food Ram LadooDelhi Street Food Ram LadooBut the fritters are made even more delicious by topping with green and sweet-tamarind chutney.
