Makar Sankranti calls for setting up the dining table with traditional delicacies, spending quality time with our loved ones, and gorging on sweets like Sunnundalu. For the unversed, Sunnundalu is a traditional Indian sweet dish made with urad dal, jaggery, ghee, and a dash of love.

Basically, these are sweet balls that you can munch on post your meal. Given that these are made from urad dal, you don’t have to worry about holiday weight gain either. You can even serve them as evening snacks with a hot cup of chai.

Earlier today, Pushpa actor Allu Arjun’s wife was seen making this sweet dish with her daughter Arha. The mother-daughter duo spent some time together and looked super cute in the video Sneha shared online.

She captioned the post, Its festival time or as Arha says its ‘Laddoo’ time! This year on Sankranti, Arha has joined me for the first time in making sunnundalu, which is rooted in both tradition and health. Happy Sankranti, from my family to yours  #RootedLiving #RootedInTradition #Sankranti #Laddoo #Sunnundalu #FamilyTime
