Ingredients to make Besan Ladoo / Kadala maavu laddu

  • Besan /Kadala maavu / Chick peas flour - 1 cup
  • Powdered sugar - 1/2 cup or 1 tbsp more
  • Ghee /Clarified butter - around 1/3 cup
  • Cardamom powder - 4 pods(seeds powdered)
  • Golden raisins - few for decoration (fry in ghee if u like I have used raw ones here)

How to make Besan Ladoo / Kadala maavu laddu

  1. In a heavy bottom pan dry roast besan / Kadala maavu on a very slow flame (no oil needed ,simply heat the flour by stirring constantly) This may take 20-25 minutes.
  2. When the flour is ready, it will turn 2 shades darker and toasted nutty aroma starts to come from the flour. (Try a small pinch and it shouldn't taste raw)
  3. Remove flour from flame and let it cool down, add powdered sugar and cardamom powder. Mix well and heat ghee to almost boiling point, immediately pour the hot ghee few tsps at a time into the flour sugar mixture
  4. Mix until there are no lumps. (Intention here is to form balls so add ghee just enough to hold the shape)
  5. When the heat is bearable, roll the dough into small balls and place few raisins on top for decoration. Once it cools down completely, the besan ladoos are ready to be served.
  6. Store in air tight container stays good for 2-3 days in room temperature.
