Besan Laddu




1 Cup Ghee

2 Cups Besan or Gram Flour

11/2Cups Powdered Sugar

1tsp Cardamom Powder

2tbsp. Almonds finely chopped

2-3 Silver Foil for Garnishing


Heat ghee and the gram flour in a heavy bottom pan. Stir-fry over low heat. It takes about 30 minutes for the flour to get cooked through and the nice aroma of roasting will come when done. Add cardamom powder and chopped Almonds.

The color should be a light brown. Shut off the heat and leave the mixture to cool completely. If it does not cool entirely, it becomes moist when sugar is added.

Add the sugar and mix well by rubbing it with your open palm against the base of the bowl. Rub till blended thoroughly.

Shape into tight, hard balls, pressing hard with both hands. Decorate the top of each ball with silver foils. It can be stored for 3-4 weeks.

Note –Little coarse Besan will make Better Laddu.
