बेसन लाडु/Besan Ladoo

Rich and sweet dessert snack, Ladoo is not only made for Diwali but any time of the year. It is made by roasting gram flour in pure तुप/ghee/clarified butter which gives them rich taste. Than you can add nuts like almonds or raisins to make them extra special. Though, I don't add raisins as it is not a favorite item at my house. I always use लाडु बेसन/ladoo bean as I don't like the texture of ladoo's made from regular besan.

3 Cup Ladoo Besan
1 Cup तुप
1/2 Cup milk
2 Cup powdered sugar
1/4 Cup chopped Almonds

In a pot combine together तुप and besan. Fry it on low-medium heat. This will take time, as you don't want to burn the mixture. Fry it until you get nice light brown color, will take about 20-25 minutes(it seems a lot but you will need to fry them on medium heat all the way through, color and taste of ladoo depends on this important step). Add chopped almonds half way through cooking besan so that they get nice and toasted. Once done, shut off the gas and add milk(adding milk makes these ladoos soft and delicious). Let the mixture cool slightly and then add powdered sugar, mix it and leave it aside until the mixture is completely cool enough to handle. Later combine the whole mixture with your hand and mix it nicely like you would knead a dough, by doing this ladoo's will be light and soft. Take a palm full of mixture and start pressing it to make round shape ladoo's. This recipe will yield around 20 medium size ladoo depending on what size you make.
