Preparation method:

  1. Dry roast the besan / gram flour in a pan on low flame for about 10 to 12 mins or until they are slightly golden brown in color. While roasting the besan, melt the ghee and keep it aside.
  2. Keep roasting for even browning but do not burn it. Add melted ghee and continue roasting the besan for 5 to 6 minutes. Once besan starts releasing ghee and a nice nutty fragrance, switch off and remove from the stove.
  3. Add powdered sugar and cardamom powder, mix well so that no lumps are formed.
  4. While it is still warm, make lemon sized balls out of the dough and store it in an airtight container. Yummy besan ladoo is ready.

Notes:

  • Make ladoo while the dough is still warm otherwise it will be too hard to make a perfect ball.
  • Make sure you roast besan flour till raw smell leaves else it will give a raw taste to the ladoos.
  • Do not burn besan flour by over roasting. At the same time it should be nicely roasted so, keep the flame on low.
