Nei Urundai/Paasiparuppu Urundai

This year november 5 happens to be my ‘thalai deepavali’. Previous years I have assisted my mom in the making of Diwali sweets and snacks, but have never tried a sweet recipe fully. This year I learnt how to make ‘Nei Urundai’ from my MIL. This is a very simple and easy to make sweet. It is also known as ‘Paasiparuppu Urundai’.

I am sending this recipe to Complete my thali – mithai event started by Jagruti of  ‘joy of cooking’and hosted now by Mina of ‘Authentic vegetarian Recipes’.

Nei Urundai/Paasiparuppu Urundai


3 cups split yellow moong dhal/paasiparuppu

3 cups sugar

30-35 no cashews

1 cup ghee

1/4 tsp cardamom powder


  1. Dry roast the moong dhal till you get a nice aroma. Cool and make it into a fine powder in mixie. You can sieve the flour to ensure that there are no coarse particles.
  2. Grind the sugar in mixie to a fine powder.
  3. Fry the cashews in a tbsp of ghee till golden colour and keep aside.
  4. In a big bowl add dhal powder and sugar. To this add 1/4 tsp cardamom powder and mix.
  5. Now heat ghee and add it to the the dhal powder and sugar mix. Mix it with a spoon. Make small balls while the heat is endurable. While making balls you can keep one cashew inside each ball. Melt in the mouth Nei Urundai is ready. This will even stay for a month if you store it properly in an airtight container.
