Making Besan ladoo in the microwave is really easy and quick. We don't have to keep stirring vigorously, till our arm starts paining. This is my and my daughter's favorite type of ladoo .Now we can make this in few minutes and eat whenever we carve for it.
Besan/ Chickpea flour - 1 cup
Ghee/ Clarified Butter - 3 -4 tsp or as required
Powdered Sugar - 1 cup
Cardamom powder - 1/2 tsp
Cashews/Raisins - For decorating
Microwave safe bowl
1.Mix chick pea flour / Besan and melted ghee together in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave on high for 4 minutes (Time may vary depending on your Microwave).
2.Keep stirring in between after every minute.Once after the first 3 mins be sure to check it for every 30 secs.
3.At the end of 4 minutes, the mixture will be a nice reddish brown and will have a nice aroma to it. The mixture should not dry like powder, otherwise the ladoos will not hold up their shape. Let it cool completely.
4. Once cooled, add the powdered sugar, cardamom powder and cashews/raisins. Mix well and make small round ladoos .
1) If you are not able to form nice shaped ladoos then it means the ghee is not sufficient .So just heat some ghee and add to the mixture.
2) You can replace ghee with unsalted butter too.
