I hope everyone had a wonderful Diwali celebrations. We had a blast on Diwali with lots of food and crackers. We had a potluck party with all our friends. As a part of potluck I made Dahi Vada, Mendhu Vada with Onion and Besan Laddu.
Today I would like to share Besan Laddu recipe. This is very simple and delicious sweet which no one can resist.
2 cups of Ladu besan/Gram flour(This is little coarse than besan. You can get it in any Indian store).
2 cups of powdered sugar
1/2 cup of Ghee. (You can add more as per your taste)
1/2tsp cardamom powder
Pistachios (Crush them into coarse mixture)
Heat Ghee in a pan once ghee is hot (almost reaching boiling point)add besan and roast it on low heat stirring continuously till it looses the raw flavor.(hint: Besan will change the color to golden color once the rawness goes.) . Now add powdered sugar, cardamom powder and mix well. Keep mixing on low flame for 2 more mts and keep it aside.
Once the mixture becomes warm make small round shaped laddus. (If you are unable to make laddus you can add ghee even at this stage. ) You can decorate the laddus dipping one edge into pistachios powder.
Delicious yummy besan laddu is ready to be served. I can guarantee that all your guests will ask which shop did you buy these sweets.
Would like to send this sweet dish to "Sweet Series Event" hosted by Sireesha
