Sunnundalu Sweet is a very popular delicacy from Andhra Pradesh,India. I learn this from my Ammamma (maternal grand mother).Often she used to make this sweet in our exams times.This sweet considered to be the highly nutritious.This sweet is specially good for children.We can make this sweet with Sugar or Jaggery. Here i made with sugar.


  1. Black gram           1 cup(whole Black gram looks in black in color,after removing skin it looks white in color)
  2. Sugar                   1 cup
  3. Pure Ghee            1/3 cup

  1. Fry lentil in  non stick pan in a medium flame for 4 to 5 min till lentils turn into golden brown color and nice aroma comes from this  lentils.
  2. Turn off the flame and keep aside lentils to be cool. 
  3. Now take fried lentils in mixer grinder or food processor and grind it fine coarse powder. Keep it aside.
  4. Then take  sugar in mixer grinder or blender blend  it fine powder.Keep it aside.
  5. Now take ghee and melt for 1 min.
