A new post with updated pictures....and much more to read :)

One of my favorite sweets....Besan Ladoo!!

As a kid I never had a sweet tooth but it developed immensely as I grew up.
I never liked the taste of store bought sweets,somehow for me it was never appealing.
So I started preparing sweets at home!! Check out my Jalebi, Chocolate Milk Cake, Rasmalai recipes too.
It's magical,how the taste of a dish can change immensely, just based on the quality of ingredients used and the way you make the dish.
I used to make all my sweets/dishes/savory snacks from store bought ghee/clarified butter till now. Recently after much thought to it, I started making ghee at home. Since we live in a world where its difficult to follow traditional process of saving the cream and finally after a month or so make the ghee.
I have started making ghee at home with store bought butter and even with that, the taste of these sweets/dishes have elevated with amazing fragrance and rich taste.

Besan ladoo was not my loved snack to be frank! But now I make this for almost every festival :) Time changes and so does people(ofcourse I mean for good ;) so did I and now I love this!
With various failed attempts to get that exact delicious taste, finally I could recreate the same taste!!! Wohooo :)

Every bite of this ladoo is soooo delicious that they will vanish in no time and believe me, even if you don't have sweet tooth these are irresistible!!

Besan Ladoo


  • 2 Cups Besan/Gram Flour
  • 4 Tbsp warm Milk
  • 1 Cup Sugar
  • 1/2 Cup Ghee/ Clarified Butter
  • 1 Tsp Elaichi Powder/Cardamom Powder
  • Dry fruits of your choice

  • Sieve the gram flour once to loosen it a bit.
  • Add 4 tbsp warm milk to this flour and mix thoroughly with hand so that milk is coated entirely on the flour.
  • Now sieve this mixture again so that ladoo will have nice texture.
  • In a skillet, add ghee. When the ghee is hot add the flour and fry it on low flame. This should take roughly 15 to 20 mins.
  • The best way to check if your flour is fried or not, is by the aroma it starts giving when it is perfectly fried and color turns golden.
  • Do not burn it else ladoos will taste bitter.
  • When the flour is done, turn off the gas. Add sugar and cardamom powder to it. Mix well with a wooden spoon.
  • Leave it aside for 5-7 mins.
  • When it is still warm, mould the ladoos with hand and top each one with dry fruits.
  • Enjoy this yummy sweet :)
