Ulundhu kali | Urad dal halwa (Low fat Vegan dessert)

Ulundhu kali is south Indian delight which is high in protein,low in fat and very good for women which helps to strengthen hip bones.

My granny used to prepare this often and forces me to eat as she adds loads of gingelly oil/sesame oil and jaggery which i hesitate to eat  😉 but now I customized based on my taste as it has loads of benefits.This is very good for the girls who attain puberty and my granny always insist me to prepare kali using urad dal with skin(black whole urad dal) as it has lots of health benefits .
