    Ingredients to make Besan ke laddu :

  • 2 cups Besan
  • 1/2 cup Ghee plus little for greasing
  • 3/4 cup powdered Sugar(you can adjust according to taste)
  • 3-4 green Cardamoms(remove seeds and crush discard outer cover)
  • handful of slivered Pistachios for garnishing

    How to make Besan ke laddu :

  • Heat ghee in a heavy pan and add besan to it, keep stirring till the besan turns light brown in colour on a low flame.
  • This part is most important and should take you half an hour at least, since we need to slow roast the besan.
  • You can also roast besan first then add ghee later.
  • Keep stirring till the ghee starts separating from the besan and you get the delicious aroma of besan roasting filling up your kitchen! Turn off flame and let cool a little.
  • Now add sugar and cardamom seeds to the mixture and keep mixing continously so that the mixture does not stick to the bottom of the pan.Switch off the flame.
  • Let the mixture cool for sometime.Make small ladoos with greased palms(grease with some desi ghee) while mixture is still warm.
  • Garnish with the slivered pistachios, just stick them in!.Serve immediately for a really soft melt-in-the-mouth experience of these laddus or store in airtight containers, laddos will remain good for weeks!
  • In case you experience difficulty in shaping the laddus, that is if they are too dry then add a tablespoon of melted ghee, then shape.
  • In case the laddus are too sticky then refrigerate for 10 mins and then shape.
  • Delicious slow roasted besan laddus are ready for your friends and family to enjoy!!
