Besan Ladoo Recipe | Besan Ke Laddu | Besan Ke Ladoo | Besan Laddu Recipe with step-by-step photo and video recipe. ladoo recipes are traditional Indian sweets made for a particular reason. Each region and state of India has its own unique variations of these generic ladoos which differ in ingredients. Yet there are some common laddu recipes made across India without any alterations to it, and besan ladoo is one such recipe.

Well, I am reposting this recipe as part of revisiting my old recipe post. To be honest, there isn’t any difference between the new version of besan laddu to the old post. As a matter of fact, the only difference is with the photo and video. In this video, I have tried to make it more clearly and detailed. In my earlier videos, I was targeting within 60 seconds and compromising on the speed. Lately, I have adapted to a new format with more emphasis on the details of the video. Coming back to the recipe, it is a simple and easy dessert with just 3 ingredients. The criticality remains within the proportion and the slow cooking and mixture process. I have tried to capture it thoroughly in the video and it should be sufficient for any novice cook.

Furthermore, some tips, suggestions and variations for a perfect and moist besan ladoo recipe. Firstly, even before using the besan, I have dry roasted it on a low flame. this helps to remove the raw flavour and also increases the besan aroma. Yet you need to be careful not to darken it and also burn it. Secondly, you can also make the same recipe with jaggery as an alternative to sugar. The jaggery option can be a healthy one, but may not give the same result in terms of texture and sweetness. Lastly, instead of using just plain chickpea flour, you can mix it with roasted peanuts, cashews, pistachios and walnuts. Moreover, you can also decorate with ghee-roasted raisins on top of each laddu.
