Sweet Lentil Balls(Urad Laddu)

These are my favorite kind of laddus because they are more nutritious than any other kind of laddu(boondi or rava or coconut laddu). Because its high in calcium its good for your bones . The sweetness can be varied, i like making it lightly sweet for low sugar snacking.

Ingredients you'll need are
2 cups Urad lentil
1 cup powdered Sugar
1 cup clarified butter(Ghee)
2 green cardamom

To make the Laddu
Roast and Blend
Roast the lentils in a pan at medium low flame until lightly brown. Use a coffee grinder or heavy duty grinder to grind the lentil to a smooth flour along with cardamoms.
Shape the Laddu
Melt the Ghee .Take a big bowl and mix together the ground flour and sugar and add the ghee while its still warm ,slowly mixing and combining the flour mixture. Knead until smooth and make balls and set on a tray to cool. Store in air tight container ,it lasts for months.

Hi
Could you put a recipe of how to make clarified ghee? Step by step with pics if possible. Is it true that clarified ghee is not harmful to health like butter is?
