Besan ladoo

Besan ladoo is the easiest sweet. Sweet done under 15-20 minutes. Many dry roast the besan flour and then mix the hot ghee. But when besan flour is fried in ghee the flour enhance the flavor of ghee and taste really good. I was out of cashews so used chopped almonds. The almonds fried in ghee was a wonderful combination.

  • Besan flour - 1 cup
  • Powdered sugar - 1/2 cup
  • Ghee - 1/4 cup
  • Green cardamon - 2
  • Cashew - 5

Heat the ghee till it melts not too hot. Immediately add the sieved gram flour. Fry in a low flame for 10 minutes. Keep stirring. 
Fry till the raw smell goes and get a nice aroma.Switch it off.  Powder the sugar crystals with cardamon. 
Heat a small pan with a tsp of ghee and fry cashews (Mine was out of stock so used almonds). Add in the fried besan flour. After it cools down completely, add powdered sugar.
Mix well. Hold the flour into balls. The big size balls yield 6 ladoos.
