Besan Ladoo

In Diwali, my mom used to make so many sweet and spicy dishes. We can't even wait for nayvedya/prasad. She always scold us to wait till aarti. My favourite dish was chakali, chivada, and besan ladoo. As soon as aarti is over we all eat till drop.

Ingredients :

2 cups gram flour (besan/chickpeas flour)
1 1/2 cup sugar (grinded)
1 cup clarified butter (ghee)
1/2 tsp cardamom powder
1 tsp each almonds, cashew nuts (chopped)(optional)


1. In a deep non-stick pan, mix gram flour and ghee over a low heat.

2. Keep constantly stirring to avoid lumps.

3. When it releases an appetizing smell, it is ready.

4. Remove from the heat and allow it to cool.

5. Add sugar, cardamom powder and nuts to the gram flour and mix thoroughly.

6. Apply some ghee on hand and make ladoo of the mixture using hand.

7. Serve.
