Besan Ka Ladooo....Happy Diwali

"Besan ka Ladooo" as I hear that it reminds me about our lecturer in catering college "Chef Pai".He was was our Lecturer in Quantity Kitchen.This besan ka ladooo was a horror dish for us , since chef had told us if we mess up the recipe you will not get the end result.If the sugar quantity is more the ladoo will sink ( it goes flatten) or if the sugar quantity is less the ladoo will not hold together.So we were all afraid if get this "besan ka ladoo" for our practicals in end of the year exam we all always thought it would be risky..Even if it was risky I love besan ka ladoo it smell...It is the Smell of Festival....Yes let all your houses fill with Sweet of Besan .. the smell of Festival...The smell of Diwali..."Happy Diwali"


Chick pea Flour (besan)- 1 1/2 cup
Semolina (sooji)- 2 tbsp
Ghee- 1/2 cup
Sugar - 3/4 cups
Cardomom powder - 1/4 tsp
Roasted Cashew - 1/4 cup

  1. Roast  the besan , sooji, and melted butter in a large frying pan and mix until besan becomes light golden brown in color.  Stir the mixture continuously with a spatula to prevent burning. \
  2. Once roasted you will get a sweet smell of roasted besan. This should take about 7 to 10 minutes.
  3. Remove the pan from the heat 
  4. When the mixture is still warm mix in sugar and cardamom powder to the roasted besan and mix well.
  5. Completely mixed take a fist full of besan mixture and roll tightly to shape it in to ladoo.
  6. You can garnish the ladoo with Cashews over it.I usually love to hide it inside the ladoo..
