Besan ke Ladoo (Sweet Gram Flour Balls)

besan ke ladoo

Besan ke ladoo is an all time favorite in many Indian households. They stay fresh for many days if stored properly. This recipe is an age old recipe which passes on from one generation to the next. Besan ladoo can also be described as Indian cookie ball.
Recipe of besan ke ladoo
3 cups besan (gram flour)
1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup ghee (clarified butter)
4-5 pods green cardamom (hari elaichi) - grounded
2 tbsp chopped nuts like cashew nuts, almonds
1. Heat ghee in a kadhai (heavy bottomed pan). Add besan and roast on a low heat, stirring continuously.
2. Roast till nice aroma comes out of the pan and besan turns brownish. Take besan out of kadhai and let it cool to temperature where besan is still warm but comfortable to touch.
3. Add powdered sugar, cardamom powder and nuts. Form small balls from the mixture by your hands. These are now called besan ke ladoo or besan laddu. Store ladoos in an airtight container.
Note- Form ladoo by your hands while besan mixture is still warm.
Break any lumps that might get formed while roasting.
