Besan Ladoo, tips and tricks to make it perfect

Most of us have had these ladoo made by our moms or grand moms. Have you ever noticed that it has different taste and texture evey time at evey different place or home.

Here I am sharing my way of making these golden beauties, and the tips and tricks to make it almost perfect everytime, whenever you attempt it.

Some of the common mistakes that happen are:

1. Not properly roasted besan
2. Proportion of ingredients being not precise.
3. Trying to make ladoo at high or low temperature (leading to problems with shape and ability to make ladoo).

For the perfect result, use coarse besan/Gram Flour. Or use half of fine besan/ gram flour and half of coarse besan gram flour. Or you could add 2 to 3 tsp of Semolina in fine gram flour to get that perfect texture.

This tip is shared by Co- blogger and a dear friend Ruchi in her Blog post and it worked wonders for me, as earlier, I always used fine gram flour/besan to make ladoo.

So without much further ado, let’s get into the kitchen, and start to prepare this delicious indian mithai with this no fail recipe.

 

Step by step instructions and pictorial presentation to make Besan Ladoo

 

In a deep thick bottom pan/kadai, add ghee.

 

Once it’s warm, to this add coarse besan/gram flour and semolina/ sooji.

 

 

Keep stirring it continuously without any pauses as besan tends to get burnt very quickly.

And make sure the flame is on low through out. Initially it will be difficult to stir and mix, but you need to have patience to roast the besan well.

For me it took almost 20 to 25 minutes to roast the mixture on low flame.

You need to keep an eye as time may vary according to the quality of besan.

You will notice that the color has changed to light brown from yellow, and aroma of besan is also an indicator that it’s roasted well.

 

At this stage sprinkle few drops of water on roasted besan and stir continuously.

This step will help the particles of besan to rise and fluff up nicely and will stay even after it’s cooled down.

Now, switch off the flame. Keep stirring it or else, mixture may get burnt due to heat of Kadai.

Shift the roasted besan from kadhai to a plate or just allow it to cool down.

 

 

 

Once the besan has cooled down a bit but it’s still warm, this is the right time to add burra sugar/ powdered sugar into besan.

Taste the test and adjust the sweetness accordingly.

Now mix the burra sugar and besan together with hands. Take equal portion and keep rolling tightly in between your palms.

Roll these golden beauties in to small lemon size balls.

Garnish with chopped dry fruits.
Store these ladoos in an air tight container.

Pro tips-

Don’t mix sugar in hot or very warm mix of besan. It should be very light warm, thats it.

You can add cardamom powder to flavor. We like them without cardamom, just the way they are.

Enjoy!!
