Besan Ladoo

There are so many sweets out there, but Ladoo is one of common sweets prepared during weddings, festivals or any other happy occasion.  Started this week with Eid and Teej, festival season has begun.  I know I am a couple of days late, but wasn’t home to prepare anything in time.  It is always better late than never, so decided to make something easy which is loved by everyone.  Eid Mubarak & Happy Teej to all my readers.

My daughter tried these ladoos for the first time and fell in love with them.  Rakshabandhan is around the corner,  this would be a lovely treat made with love for your brothers.



  • 1 cup ladoo besan (or regular besan)
  • 1/4 cup or a little more but less than 1/2 cup ghee
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar (you can add 1 cup if you like it sweet)
  • 1 tsp cardamom powder
  • 2 tbsp milk powder
  • 1 tbsp crushed pistachios for garnish


In a kadhai or a heavy bottom pot heat the ghee (clarified butter) to a smoking point.   Lower the heat to medium and add besan to it..


Mix it until the besan changes the color,  and until the raw small is gone.


Add powdered sugar, cardamom powder and milk powder to the mixture.  Turn the gas off and mix well.  Let it cool down until you are able to handle it in your hand to make the ladoos.


After the mixture cools down, take a small portion in your hand and make a fist. This will help it bring together.  Roll it in between your palms and give it a shape of ball.


Garnish it with the crushed pistachio just like that or dip the tip of the ladoo into the ghee and then sprinkle the pistachio.  Yummy ladoos are ready to be enjoyed.
