ABOUT Besan Sooji Ladoo RECIPE

In Maharashtra besan ladoos been prepared in many households during Diwali season. Ladoos prepared using besan and semolina tastes amazing. Dry roasting besan and semolina is a task. Roasting should be done properly, undercooked besan leaves raw taste behind which will affect final taste of the dish. I have added fine semolina and sugar to increase crunchiness. This is my granny’s diwali recipe.
