BESAN LADDU

BESAN LADDU




INGREDIENTS
  • Besan (chickpea flour) - 1 cup (250 grams approx)
  • Desi ghee - 1/2 cup
  • Powdered sugar - 1/2 cup - 3/4 cup
  • Cardamom powder - 1 teaspoon
METHOD
  • First, warm the ghee on low heat. make sure it is not very hot, it should be just warm.
  • It adds flavour to the laddus and at the same time acts as a binding agent.
  • Next, sift besan (chickpea flour).
  • Add this flour to the warm ghee..
  • Mix them well and keep the heat on low-medium.

  • Now, roast this mixture till the time it gets well cooked. This will take around 10-15 minutes. A very nice aroma starts coming from this mixture. that is the time when you get to know that it is done.

  • Turn off the flame and allow the mixture to turn warm from hot.
  • Once, it turns warm, add powdered sugar to it & mix well.
  • You can also add some almonds and raisins and cardamom powder to this mixture at this point.


  • Put some mixture on your palm when it is warm & turn it into round laddus.
  • If you have any problem in making the laddu, add a little milk.
  • The mixtrue won't look sticky enough, but it will form round and beautiful laddus.
  • Garnish with powdered almonds as I did it or you can even use whole almonds or raisins to garnish.
  • Besan laddus are ready to serve.

I have never made besan ladoos though my Mum used to make them every winter. I guess I need to pull out her recipe and give them a try this season.
The ladoos look tasty and tempting.
