To Make Besan Ladoo

Visalakshi Besan Flour - 2 1/4 cups or 1/6 cup extra besan flour
ghee / clarified butter - 3/4 cup
powdered sugar - 1 cup
cardamom seeds powder - 1 tbsp
coarse badam powder - optional (for coating)

Preparation Method
  • Melt ghee in a non stick pan or heavy bottomed kadai on medium flame. Add besan flour and switch to low flame
  • Once ghee is absorbed by the flour, it starts to appear in liquid consistency. Roast the flour on low flame for first 20 mins. Stir it frequently to avoid besan sticking to the bottom of pan
  • Add 1/4 cup of flour and keep stirring for next 5-10 mins. If still the flour is in liquid consistency, then add few more tbsp of flour and keep stirring. The overall cooking time will be around 30-35 mins. Keep cooking on low flame to avoid burning
  • Add cardamom seeds powder and stir well. Remove from the heat and add powdered sugar to the flour
  • Mix well and allow to cool for 5 mins. Make small balls of the dough and coat it with badam powder. Store in an airtight container
