With friends coming home and me going out to meet some, i cannot go empty-handed. So made these Besan Ladoo yesterday.As i said, they are very quick to make. Roasting the flour is very important here to get rid of the rawness. Once that is achieved, it takes just 10 minutes to make the ladoos.
3 tbsp Powdered Nuts (1 tbsp each Almonds, Cashews and pistachios) (optional)
- In a Wide pan, add 3 tbsp of ghee and add almond silvers and roast for a minute, next add the gram flour and roast until nice aroma emanates. Take care not to burn the flour. It changes to a nice golden yellow and gives out mesmerizing aroma of ghee roasted flour.
- Take the flour in a wide plate. Let it cool. When it is warm enough to touch, add powdered sugar, powdered nuts, powdered cardamom, and whisk well to mix.
- Keep the Melted ghee cup next to the wide plate. Add a tsp of ghee to the flour-sugar mixture, mix well with your hands, gather together and make ping-pong sized balls out of it.
- Repeat the same with rest of the flour-sugar mixture. A tsp of ghee is a must to retain the flavor of the ladoo, so do not reduce the amount.

- After making the ladoos, Dip one side of laddo in ghee and touch the ghee-side over chopped pistachios to decorate the top of the laddoo. Place the pistachio side up on the plate.
- Let it sit on the counter for 30 minutes. Store them in an Air-tight container. A perfect treat to gift your friends this Diwali.
