Hello friends,

Yesterday, I made these yummy Besan Ladoos for my kids as they were craving for something sweet. This became our summer project and we enjoyed making it together! This is a easy recipe and very popular in India. You fill find lot of different versions of these ladoos in India, with melon seeds, jaggery, boora, almonds but i like it plane and easy with just a few ingredients.

Good to Know

Besan (Gram Flour) is rich in protein and complex carbohydrate. It is high in folate, Vit B6, fiber and Iron. Since we are using lot of ghee and sugar in this recipe, it is best to consume these ladoos in moderation.

Ingredients
Ingredients

Method

  1. Add besan in a Kadhai and roast on low flame for 10 minutes. Add Desi ghee and keep on roasting, let the besan combine well with ghee. Use 1/2 cup ghee, if you want your ladoos to be more firmer.

2. After about 20-25 minutes the besan starts to release ghee. By now it should be little dark in color. Keep on roasting till it becomes golden brown. (proper roasting of besan is very important, if it is under roasted, it will have a raw smell to it and ladoos won’t taste good and over roasting will make the besan bitter)

3. Turn off the flame, after about 30-35 minutes of roasting. Let it cool down and transfer it to a large bowl.

4. When the besan is slightly warm, add powdered sugar and Ilaichi (cardamom) powder, mix well with hands. (Do not mix sugar in hot besan, as it will melt the sugar)

5. Prepare round ladoos and enjoy!
