Besan Laddu, Bengal Gram Flour Laddu

          Besan Laddu/ Gram Flour Laddu, I have made this only once, long time back for one Diwali, I guess. Though it came out well and tasted really delicious, for some reason I didn't do it again. This is the second time, this is an extremely easy and yet at the same time really very tasty laddu. It just needs four ingredients and takes under 30 minutes, at the end of which you have 25 laddus, very flavorful from the ghee and cardamom added..

Need To Have

  • Besan Flour/ Gram Flour - 2 cups
  • Powdered Sugar - 11/2 cupc
  • Ghee - 2/3 cup
  • Cardamom Powder - 1/2 teaspoon


          Heat the ghee, add the gram flour and roast on reduced flame for 8 to 10 minutes, till you get a nice aroma and the raw smell of the flour disappears.

          Remove add the sugar and cardamon, mix it and cool it slightly. While it's still hot, using your hands, roll into small balls firmly and keep. Cool and store it.

The mixture should be slightly warm, then only you can make laddus.
If it gets cold, heat it very lightly and then make the laddus.
I used 21/2 cups flour, 2 cups sugar and 2/3 cups ghee, but you can stick to the above given measures, so that it'll be easy to make your laddus.
