~ Besan ke Laddu ~



Ganesh Chaturthi is a festival dedicated to the Lord Ganesha, who is well known for his love and inclination towards sweets like modak and besan ke ladoo. Therefore, it is of prime importance to offer the Lord besan ke laddu on this special occasion. No doubt, these ladoos are very tasty and are loved by almost everyone. So, why not make this auspicious occasion more special by making them at home only.






Ingredients:
1 cup Gram Flour (besan/chickpea flour)  
1/4 cup Ghee (clarified butter)
1/2 cup Powdered Sugar
5-7 Saffron Strands
1/4 teaspoon Cardamom Powder (green elaichi powder)
1/4 teaspoon Nutmeg Powder (jaiphal powder)
1 tablespoon Sliced Almonds, for garnishing
1 tablespoon Sliced Pistachio, for garnishing




Preparation:

Sieve gram flour in a large bowl or a plate and keep it aside. Heat ghee in a kadai or heavy based pan over low flame. When ghee starts to melt, add sieved gram flour. Mix well using spatula. Roast it over low flame until it turns golden brown, stirring constantly. When it is roasted properly, you will get the nice aroma from it. It would take approx 7-10 minutes, however, time may vary depending on the thickness of pan or kadai you are using. Turn off the heat, add saffron strands, nutmeg powder and cardamom powder. Mix thoroughly.Transfer to a large plate and let it cool for approx. 8-10 minutes. When mixture is slightly warm, proceed to next step. Add powdered sugar and mix. Mix until sugar is propely blended with roasted flour and mixture turns smooth. Divide it into 8 small equal portions and give them a shape of laddu. Garnish besan laddus with almond slice and pistachios and let them cool at room temperature. Serve with snacks or store them in an airtight container.
