Directions

  1. Heat the ghee in a skillet over medium-low heat. Stir the chickpea flour into the ghee and cook until golden brown and has a nutty smell. You cannot miss the fragrance of roasted besan. It will perfume the entire house. Turn off the heat and let the besan cool till just warm.
  2. Stir the confectioners' sugar and cardamom into the flour mixture. Pinch the mixture together with your fingers. It should hold the shape. If not, sprinkle some milk till the mixture is able to bind together. Form the mixture into lime-sized balls and roll between your palms till smooth and even. Serve.

i like it a lot , because it was easy to make and i did add little food color in it , to make it look good too.

I picked this recipe because it had close to 5 stars and besan ladoo is my favorite Indian sweet. I was making this for a party and the consistency was all wrong. I think its supposed to have granulated sugar, not powdered. I am so disappointed because now I have to scramble and figure out another dessert for my guests.
