Besan ladoo is a saviour when you suddenly decide to make home based sweet for guests. Today my mother had the same thought. I learnt it today and cooked with momie’s helping hand. We had a couple of guest coming at home today so sweet toh banta hai!!! With short notice of time, mom and I had to choose from rava ladoo or besan ladoo. We went with latter one.
It takes about 30 minutes to cook besan ladoo. Sweet and smooth besan ladoo just melts as you put it in your mouth. Sounds delicious... Let’s get to the recipe.
Preparation time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 25 minutes
Makes: 25-30 ladoos (the size you shape into)
What goes in it:
Besan flour (Bengal gram) - 1 ½ cup
Rava (Semolina) - ½ cup
Milk- ¼ cup
Ghee- 1 cup
Sugar, powdered- 1 cup
Elaichi powder (Cardamom)- ½ tbl spn
How did I make it:
Take a kadai, put besan and ghee in it. Keep on stirring both on low flame till it gets reddish tone. This will take about 5-7 minutes. Make sure the mixture is loose.

Add rava to it, this gives a nice texture to the ladoo. As you will add rava, it will swell up and gradually level down as you keep on stirring continuously on low flame. Roast it till you get light pinkish colour. This will again take 5-7 minutes of your time.
Take it off the stove and add milk to it. Mix it well stirring it continuously to avoid lumps. Also add eliachi powder to it. Once the mixture is mixed well, let it cool.
Then add powdered sugar to it and mix well.
Shape into round balls/ladoo with the help of hand. And the ladoo are ready to be served consuming little of your time & effort.
Serve this delicious light coarsed ladoo to your guests...
