Ingredients Serving: 6

  1. 1. Gram flour (besan) - 2 cup
  2. 2. ghee  -  1/2 cup
  3. 3. Green cardamom powder  - 1 tspn
  4. 4. cashew powder  -  1/2 tbspn
  5. 5. almond powder  - 1/2 tbspn
  6. 6. Powdered sugar  -  1 cup
  7. 7. salt a pinch
  8. 8. cashews or raisins for garnishing


  1. Heat ghee in a non stick pan.
  2. Add gram flour and stir continuously keeping the flame on low for about 30 minutes. Keep stirring till the besan turns aromatic and also wait for besan to change colour to golden brown.  - Notice the besan will start releasing ghee from sides of pan indicating the besan is well cooked. Also besan turns silky smoothy paste (picture 2).
  3. Remove from heat, transfer to a bowl and set aside to cool to room temperature.(transfer immediately to another bowl preventing from further cooking or else besan will turn bitter).
  4. Add cardamom powder, cashew powder, almond powder, powdered sugar and salt and mix well making sure everything is combined well (picture 7).
  5. Take a tablespoon of mixture and prepare ladoo. Garnish with cashews or raisins. Serve it. Note : - Do not add powdered sugar when the besan paste is hot, as it melts down the sugar and turns watery paste.
