Besan ke Ladoo

Besan ke Ladoo is a dessert ball made with bengal gram flour, sugar, clarified butter and dry fruits roasted and rolled together. These ladoos have festive memories associated with each Indian household. They have the perfect mix of taste, nutrition and nostalgia.

Check the blog for Gujiya/ Karanji/ Coconut Filled Hand Pies, Namakpaare | Short Crust Cookies and Dal Namkeen for more festive snacks.

Besan ladoos need no introduction, no background! I won’t be far off the mark, when I say that Indians grow up on these ladoos across regions, states and cities.

Ingredients

  • 1 Cup - Besan (Gram Flour)
  • 1 Tbsp - Semolina
  • 2 Tbsps - Ghee (Clarified Butter)
  • 1 Cup - Castor Sugar (Bura)

Instructions

  1. In a thick bottom pan or wok, add ghee & besan. Now roast the besan till it starts emitting nice roasted aroma. Besan upon roasting leaves more ghee, so add ghee accordingly. Remove from pan and keep aside.
  2. When it is just lukewarm quickly add in castor sugar. Mix well.
  3. Roll small balls using hands. Serve with tea or coffee or as a dessert after dinner.
