Besan Ladoo

This is one of my favourite Ladoo which is not very common at Calicut. When I was working at Trivandrum, I used to buy this whenever I could, but never thought that i would be making it one day... This is a very tasty ladoo and if you have lil patience you can also make it at home..:)
After all homemade dishes have its special taste..
  • 1 cup besan powder
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup ghee
  • 1/4 cup chopped badam
  • 1/4 cup raisin
  • 1 powdered cardamon
  • Roast Besan powder in ghee on slow fire till besan powder slightly changes its color.
  • Stir it well while roasting to make sure there are no chunks formed and besan is not browned.
  • To this add the rest of the ingredients and stir it well on slow fire.
  • Make sure that sugar is not burned.
  • After mixing it very well switch off the flame and stir it for few more min so that the mixture won't get burned due to the hot kadai.
  • Keep it for some time so that the mixture is not too hot to be touched.
  • Using the palm make small balls with the mixture. Don't wait till the mixture to be completely coll for doing this.
I didn't use badam and raisins as i didn't have them at home when i made it. Still it tastes the same as the "Maa Ladoo" we get at Arul Jyothi, Trivandrum...:)
