Besan Ladoo Recipe/How to make Besan Ladoo

Besan Ladoos are one of the most popular and loved diwali sweet or mithai .Melt in mouth delicious ladoos are made with just few ingredients namely besan/gram flour ,ghee, sugar and garnished with nuts .Besan ladoos happen to be my most favourite ladoo 😜😛

I love Indian sweets one of my most favourite is besan ladoos .Besan ladoos are soft delicious melt in mouth ladoos which I bet you can't stop eating if you taste one...I'm totally addicted to these from childhood and so we always prepare a large batch of it. Recently I was craving for some Christmas sweets but since its lent and most of Christmas sweets contain egg and are time consuming I made these ladoos.Its very easy to prepare and can be easily done under 30 -45 min. So give it a try and you will love this for sure.

  • Besan/gram flour 2 cups
  • Powdered sugar 1 cup
  • Melted Ghee/Clarified butter 1/2 cup to 2/3 (100 to 150 ml approx)
  • Cardamom powder 1/2 tsp
  • Chopped almonds /cashews 2tbsp
  • Raisins 10-15

  • In a kadhai/heavy bottomed vessel ,dry roast besan over low flame for about 12 to.14 min till the colour changes and it emits a nice aroma.

  • Add the ghee in two to three additions continuously stirring the besan to avoid browning.
  • After stirring further for 2-3 min switch off the flame and take the kadhai down.
  • Make sure the besan is roasted well and you see ghee releasing.
  • Spread the mixture on a large thali/plate and add the powdered sugar ,nuts and cardamon /elaichi powder.
  • Mix it well with a spatula so that no lumps are formed.

  • Once its warm enough to handle shape it into ladoos.
  • Gently press almond/raisins on top of each  ladoo.
  • Let it cool completely before storing it in airtight container.

Use pure / desi ghee for best results.
Start with 1/2 cup add more only if required 
Make sure the besan is roasted well it else the ladoos will have raw taste.
You may add 1 tbsp rava /semolina while roasting the besan this will give  huge crunchy taste .
You can add any nuts of your choice I love adding raisins almonds and charoli.
