Ram Ladoo

If you are also befuddled with its name and expecting it to be sweet like me, then I am sorry to disappoint you but trust me these small balls full of flavors are uber delicious.

It's commonly eaten in Delhi as a street food and popularly found in Winters as in it goes the hero of Ram Ladoo which is some piquant Radish.

Let’s get started with the recipe below :)
