Besan er Laddu

laddu 118

After a long time I am here.  Feeling great . Thank you so much to all of my friends who liked and asked for this recipe after yesterday’s Facebook update.  This recipe is really simple and very easy to make even if you are an amateur cook.

Ingredients you need: 

  1. Ghee/clarified butter –  3/4  tablespoon
  2. Besan/Gram flour-  2 cup
  3. Sooji/Semolina-  2 teaspoons
  4. Salt-  1pinch
  5. Powdered Sugar- 1 cup
  6. Cardamom powder- 1/2 teaspoon

Take a microwave proof bowl and put the ghee in it. Microwave for  45 seconds or until melted. Mix sooji , besan and 1 pinch of salt. Mix it well with the ghee.  Now microwave it for 2 minutes. Take it out. Stir well with a spoon and microwave for another  2 minutes. Take it out , stir and microwave for another 1 minute.  Besan mix should be darker yellow/light brown in color and you should smell the nice aroma .  If you feel that you need to microwave it another 1/2 minutes- do it.  Mine was ready in 5 minutes. But it depends on the power of microwave.  Here I would like to mention that the bowl should be uncovered when you microwave it.

Now set it aside until it comes into room temperature or cool down completely.  We need powdered sugar for this recipe. But don’t worry if you don’t have it at home.  Use your grinder and regular sugar and make one cup of powdered sugar as I did yesterday.  Now mix sugar and the cardamom powder with the Besan . You can add some crushed nuts if you want to. I just added raisin for decoration.  Your laddu mixture is ready .  take equal portions and make laddus. Save it in a air tight container and refrigerate.

This is the best and easiest part of the recipe-  Eat them my friend.laddu 118
