i have already shared an easier version of this recipe in microwave. but the traditional or authentic of besan ke ladoo recipe was long due on me. previously i had thought to share this recipe on deepavali, however i couldn’t because of other priorities. well i wanted to release this before next diwali hence i thought it is now right to share this exotic indian sweet recipe. moreover this recipe is shared by my mother and i have introduced some subtle changes to have better shelf life.

besides, some important tips and suggestions for a perfect besan ladoo recipe. firstly, and more importantly, try to use grainy flour or gram flour as compared to fine besan flour. the grainy flour would help to shape the ladoo and also gives crunchy bites. alternatively, you can also add a tbsp of semolina or rava to besan flour which helps to get the same texture. another important tip is add sugar when the ghee + besan mixture is completely cooled down. if you end up in a situation where you cannot form the laduu shape. then refrigerate the mixture for 10 -15 minutes and than try to shape the ladoos.

finally i would like to highlight my other indian sweet recipes collection from my blog. particularly, rava ladoo, motichur ladoo, dry fruits ladoo, rasmali, rasgulla, mysore pak, karanji recipe and kaju pista roll recipe. in addition do visit my other recipes collection board like,

notes:

  • firstly, if you have difficulty in shaping ladoo, cover and refrigerate the mixture for 15 minutes to firm slightly.
  • also besan ladoo stays fresh up-to two weeks at room temperature.
  • furthermore, besan ke ladoo can also be prepared in microwave. check out the microwave besan ke ladoo recipe.
  • additionally, use coarse besan or add a tbsp of semolina / bombay rava to get a crunchy texture.
  • most noteworthy, do not add sugar when the besan paste is hot as it melts down the sugar, and turns watery paste.
  • finally, increase the amount of sugar to ¾ cup if you are looking for very sweet besan ladoo.
