Who has not heard of Besan Laddoo? This all-time favourite Indian mithai holds a very special place in Indian cuisine, because it has withstood the test of time and geography. Although known by different names, it is popular in almost all the regions of India, and continues to be liked by people of all age-groups, from toddlers and teens, to the toothless too! Here, we show you how to make this wonderful treat easily using the Microwave oven. The only thing you need to be careful about while preparing this is the duration of frying the gram flour and ghee mixture. If you fry it for too less time, it will have a raw smell, and if you cook it for too long, it will burn the flour. So, stir the mixture occasionally while cooking, and follow the instructions as given. You can make these ladoos for festive occassions like Ganesh Chaturthi and Diwali . Also a good Sweet Treats for kids.

Great of course. If raisins, cashews and pecans/walnuts are coarsely cut or crumbled the laddos become even more festive!
