Besan Laddoo is one of the most popular mithai in Indian cuisine. It might be known by various names, but this delicious laddoos of spiced and sweetened besan is famous all over the country.

When making this, remember that the rich flavour of the laddoo depends on how well you cook the besan. Under-cooking it will leave behind a raw taste, which will ruin the whole recipe. So, make sure you cook it well. The proportion of ghee and besan is also important as you might end up with a dry or very soft laddoo if it is not done right.

Once you have the mix ready, take some in your palm, shape it into a round and keep rolling it in your hand till you get a smooth, lustrous, ghee-tinted texture on the surface. It will look so irresistible at this stage that you would just want to pop it into your mouth! That’s when the laddoo is ready.

Tarla Dalal    Hi Krupa, We would not suggest to add jaggery instead of sugar as the taste is best with sugar itself.
