Besan Laddu ~ Easy Sweet

Golden Goddess ~ Besan Laddu

It took very long for this post to get published on my blog. Probably because it was made very often and considard as quick or instant sweet for any occasion. I thought it was too simple to put it on blog. My sis-in-law insisted I blogged it because she just loved eating them.
Besan Flour(Chickpea Flour) - 1 cup
Powdered Sugar- 1/2 cup
Fine Semolina- 1Tbsp (I use 1Tbsp for 200g of Flour)
Ghee (Melted Butter) - a Tbsp less than 1/2 cup
Cashew nuts - a handful
Other nuts - Pista, Almond for garnishing

Very simple method.

1. Sieve the Besan flour to make it more airy. Add Semolina, mix and keep
2. In a thick bottomed pan, add 1 Tbsp of ghee and fry cashew nuts.
3. When cashew nuts brown add Chickpea flour and continue to fry on medium flame. Take care not to burn the four. Fry till you get nice aroma of fried flour.

Semolina added to chickpea flour gives nice texture. Do not add more.

4 Add powdered sugar and remaining ghee and switch off the stove. Mix well and keep it aside for the mixture to cool down.
5 When mixture is warm and manageable, apply ghee to your palm and take a fist full of flour and shape them to make Laddus.
4. Laddus are ready to eat.

Serve with love :) and pick one please ..


It is Ritika's Birthday today. Ritika is my SIL's daughter. Sending these Ladus to her (errr..her mother I guess who loves Besan Laddu to the core!). I was thinking of cooking food for party at home but I was very tired after coming back from office. Had heard about CoupoNation from friends so want to try it. Foodpanda coupons are also slowly gaining popularity. Try them sometime.
