Besan Ladoo Recipe | Diwali Sweet Recipes

Besan Ladoo , Besan Ke Laddu is easy, healthy laddu made with minimal ingredients and taste delicious. Popular during Ganesh Chaturthi, Diwali but besan ladoo has to be the most popular ladoo for any occasion, celebration. Made with bengal gram flour or besan as it's known, sugar and ghee melt-in mouth laddos are delicious, we just need to make sure we roast the besan well to get delicious laddoo.

If you look for some easy yet yummy sweet for Diwali celebration then try this ladoo, besan ladoo made in few ways one that is shinny and very soft due to extra ghee added and some ladoo will be one drier side. But this recipe is just perfect balance between the shinny and dry version of besan ladoo. Even DH whom doesn't like ghee at all ate this ladoo with joy and didn't crib about ghee at all so go ahead try it.


The two ladoo that I make the most are Sooji (Rava) Ladoo and Besan Ladoo, it's my duty every time to make ladoo whether I am in parents place or in-law's place and I make besan ladoo every year so many times but was never able to post it as these ladoo disappears in no time at all. These ladoo is good for kids and adults so go ahead and make some.


Once very funny thing happened, just before Diwali my friend asked to help her making some sweet and I made besan ladoo with her and chatting with her I added extra ghee, after the some time the laddo were just becoming halwa and couldn't hold the shape at all :) So make sure you measure ghee and add in small quantity first if not measuring. This diwali enjoy these yummy cute besan ladoo.
