Hope you all had a Safe and Great Diwali!!!! I made Besan Laddus and Almond-Cashew Burfis for Diwali.
Besan laddu or ladoo is a very easy sweet to make and is popular throughout India, especially at festivals and celebrations ,especially Diwali. Besan Laddu is one of the sweet Amma used

to prepare definitely during Diwali. She makes the yummiest laddus ...

Yields approx. :- 25
Recipe Source :- Amma


Ingredients:-


Sieved Besan Flour - 2 cups
Finely Powdered Sugar - 2 cups
Ghee - 1 cup
Cardamom Powder - 1 tsp
Sliced Cashews or Raisins - 2-3 tsp




Method:-

1) Fry cashew nuts and raisins in some ghee and keep aside.

2) Heat some ghee in a thick bottom pan on a low flame. Add besan flour and stir continuously. Occasionally add ghee into it. Keep stirring till the flour becomes golden brown and ghee separates. Remove from fire ,set aside to cool down a little.

3) After cooling ,add powdered sugar, cardamom powder, and fried cashew nuts and raisins. Mix well. Using lightly greased hands, Shape into small rounds or ur desired shapes when still little bit warm.

4) Store besan laddus in an airproof container.

Note : If it's difficult to make rounds, you can add some melted ghee, if needed.

    Hi,

    Thanks Sreesha. This was helpful. I will try this way. Also the good news is that I will be going home. I reserved a ticket on 11th December. Now its time to have the motherly food... :)

    I think besan ladoo is simple... atleast simple in the instructions. I will try to prepare it and let you know if I face some problems.

    Here in our home in Cochin, my friend Jana's mother and father have come so now trying his Amma's food. All Amma's prepare delicious.

    When his parents are back to Chennai, I am going to try the besan laddu.
