Besan Ladoo ~ Wishing Everyone A Very Happy Diwali


1. Besan / Chickpea flour/ Kadala maavu – 1½ cup
2. Powdered sugar – 1 cup + 1 tbsp
3. Melted Ghee/Clarified Butter – ½ cup + 1 tbsp.
4. Cardamom/Elakka - 3
5. Slivered Almond/Any nuts(optional) To Garnish

Preparation Method: -

  • Sift the besan flour and remove all the lumps. Set aside
  • Grind cardamom with 1 tbsp sugar. Set aside.
  • Heat up a Kadai/pan, make sure the heat is in low-medium. 
  • Add ¼ cup ghee to the pan, add besan flour slowly. Keep stirring as you add the flour fully.
  • Roast besan well in medium flame until it turns golden brown in color and start to get an aroma of the flour. Make sure not to burn the flour. 
  • Move the ghee-besan mixture to a wide bowl or plate.
  • Add the powdered sugar, add 2 tbsp of warm ghee. Mix well with a spatula to combine everything. Add more ghee as needed. 
  • Add cardamom powder. When it is warm enough to handle, mix well with hands to combine everything well. 
  • Take small portion of the mix and press well with hands to form a ball size ladoo. 
  • Repeat the process for rest of the mixture. 
  • Wash the hands at the end and wipe well to dry.
  • Spread a quarter spoon of ghee in the hand. Take each ladoo and smoothen them by rotating it in the circular motion. 
  • Garnish with slivered almonds or cashews or raisins.  Serve them for this Diwali ! :) :)
