Hai thanks for liking n following my i am posting another dish came from my family. U should have to spend some time to prepare this dish. Mainly for balls because we r making small balls n it will take time. In joint family where there will be 10 n more then it will be easy if some one helps u but if no one r there to help then u must have time n patience. But if u taste this dish then u will not leave it for sure. Mainly children now a days if we say about green vegetables they will make faces. In this they will love n can't find leaves n it will be good for both rice n roti. Generally there is a saying that south Indians will live to eat. Yes we love to eat n will give lot of variations to our dishes. I tried it in pizza also. I loved it.

Bandhar laddu (thokudu laddu)

This is famous in Andhra Pradesh. It came from a place called Bandhar now called Machlipatanam.

          So this thokudu laddu is also called as Bandhar laddu. Who ever goes to that place they will definitely taste this laddu. Slowly it spread to whole state. It won’t be strange if we say it spread to whole world.

         This is long process n from this laddu we can learn two dishes. That is bundhi n laddu. Bundhi is same process which we do it first to prepare this laddu slight difference is we have to add chilly powder to spicy bundhi.
