Besan Ladoo




Besan Ladoo

Besan ladoo is rich sweet made with roasted besan or gram flour.I had been wanting to try this recipe for a long time. The first time I made this was with ordinary gram flour which is commonly used to make these ladoos,but I messed up a bit and did not give the desired results. But this time I used ladoo besan which is little coarse and has a different texture. It came out really good.


Ingredients
Besan Ladoo-2 cups
Sugar- 3/4 cup to one cup
Ghee- 1/2 cup
Cardamon powder- 3/4 tsp
Chopped badam- 4 tsp
Raisins- a few


Heat one tsp of ghee in a pan and roast badam and raisins and keep aside. Mix ladoo besan with ghee into a crumble mixture,resembling wet sand and roast this in low medium flame for about 18-20 minutes continuously stirring. Do not speed up the process by increasing heat. The besan needs to be properly roasted and the raw flavor to completely disappear. The color will change to brownish red. Transfer the mixture into another bowl and allow to cool down a bit. Add in the nuts, cardamon powder and sugar and mix well. Make ball when it is warm other wise it is difficult to form shape.

Note: Always try to add sugar only in the end. Do not add in the cooking stage or when the mixture is too hot, the sugar will melt and become syrup. You can wait for one or two minute to slightly cool down and add the sugar and mix and blend well with a spoon and rest for one more minute before making the ladoos

Try this..
Hope you will all enjoy.
