Besan Ka Ladoo


















This is one of my favourite dessert! Usually prepared during Krishna Janamashtami.
Ingredients

2 cups Gram flour
6-8 Cashewnuts
6-8 Almonds
1/2 cup Ghee
1tspn Green cardamom powder
1 cups Powdered sugar

Method-
1. Sieve the besan through a fine sieve and set aside.
2. Coarsely grind cashewnuts and almonds and keep aside.
3. Melt ghee in a kadai. Add besan, cook over low heat till besan is well done and gives an aroma. This takes about 15 to 20 minutes
4. Add Cardamom powder, ground cashewnuts and almonds. Stir and take it off the heat.
5. Let it cool for a while.
6.Add the powdered sugar and mix well by using your hands
7.Shape it into a round or desired shape and store in an airtight container.  ( I have used shape moulds to get kids attention).
