Besan Ladoo



  1. Ghee – 1/2 cup
  2. Besan – 1 cup + 1/4 cup; divided
  3. Cashews – 2 tbsps., chopped
  4. Powdered sugar – 1 cup (Not icing sugar)
  5. Powdered cardamom – 3/4 tsp.


  1. Heat ghee in a heavy bottomed wok & stir in 1 cup of besan. Roast on low flame for 25 minutes.
  2. When the flour is nicely roasted and is dark golden brown in colour, put the extra 1/4 cup of besan. If the mixture is still very wet add extra tbsp. or two of besan.
  3. Cook further for 12-15 minutes.
  4. Turn off heat & transfer this mixture to another bowl. Add the cashews & keep stirring till the mixture is completely cool to prevent the besan from burning.
  5. Add the powdered sugar & powdered cardamom & make laddoos from the mixture.
