Besan Ladoo Recipe | How to make Besan Ladoo
Besan Ladoo reminds me of my childhood days and how we used to enjoy such sweets as kids. Diwali is just round the corner and the countdown has begun. As we all know its the time for cleaning, shopping, lightings & decorations, meeting family & friends….above all tireless cooking. This diwali let us help you make Besan Ladoos, it’s amazingly delicious. This traditional sweet will literally melt in your mouth !!!!!
Besan Ladoo is also popular as Magaj Na Ladoo in Gujarati. However there is little difference in process as we use milk while preparing it.
Besan ladoos are delicious sweets which are generally prepared during occasions and festivals. I remember trying my hand on this delicacy a lot of times and every time it was a big blunder. And I actually had to keep the mixture in refrigerator to make it look like a dough. I knew the right amount of ghee and besan but had no idea that it has to be added gradually and not at one go. Again roasting it too little or too much also spoils the taste.
But I loved these besan ladoos so much that I had decided to learn the trick. After many trials and errors I got it perfect. A simple change in method and it completely changes the results. I would add lot of ghee initially and that would make roasting the flour difficult. So the trick to roast besan evenly is to roast it properly before adding much ghee.
I have seen many times people add sugar right after roasting besan. It is better to let besan cool down before we add sugar to it. This avoids melting of sugar due to heat.
We can also prepare Besan Ladoo in microwave. It hardly takes 5 minutes to roast besan in microwave. I will soon be posting the recipe of Besan Ladoo in Microwave oven.
