Minapa Sunni Undalu (also called Sunnundalu) is an Udad Dal Laddu that is very popular in Andhra Pradesh. Easy to make and absolutely delicious, this laddu is made for most festive occasions like Deepavali.

You can make Minapa Sunni Undalu with Udad Dal with or without the skin. I chose to make it with split udad dal with skin as I love the texture and taste that it imparts. It is also far more healthy than the Sunnundalu made with husked dal.
