Besan Laddoo|how to make Besan Laddoo

Laddoo.......and my son starts mimicking his favourite cartoon character Chhota bheem.

I first made Besan Laddoo on my sons demand.He wanted to become strong by eating laddoo just like chhota bheem.And like a true health conscious mom,I made these healthy Almond induced Laddoo.You should see him relishing these laddoos.Every minute of hardwork is worth it!

Preparation Time:10 minutes
Cooking Time:20 -25 minutes


  1. 500gm besan flour(bengal gram lentil flour)
  2. 1/2 cup ghee(clarified butter)
  3. 1/2 to 1 cup powdered white sugar
  4. 4 tsp cardamom powder
  5. 20 almonds powdered(in grinder)
For Garnish:Cashewnuts and pistachios (optional)

  1. Sieve gram flour in a thick bottomed pan.Place the pan on heat.
  2. Roast it in low flame until colour changes to brown or deep brown colour.Keep stirring continuously toavoid burning at the bottom.This may take 10 to 12 minutes or more.
  3. Take it off the gas.Let it cool a bit.Add sugar and crushed almonds to the mix.
  4. Now transfer mix to a bowl and add ghee to it.
  5. While mix is still warm ,combine well to form a smooth dough.
  6. Now grease hands with ghee,shape balls with your hands.
  7. Let the laddoos cool.Transfer the laddoos to airtight container and enjoy them whenever you feel like.
