Besan Laddoo

A very Happy Rakshabandhan to all of you.Today I am missing my brother and family very much.It's so good to be at home with your loved ones on these occasions.Lets celebrate this auspicious day of 'Bond Of Protection' with something sweet.Yesterday I made these Besan Laddoos so here is the recipe.

Besan/Gram flour 1 cup
Ghee/clarified butter 2-3 tbsp
Powdered Sugar 3/4 cup
Almonds 7-8
Green Elaichi/Cardamom pw 1 pinch

1. Heat ghee in a heavy bottom pan/kadhai and add green elaichi powder,besan in it.Roast it on low flame till the besan slightly changes its colour and gives a nice aroma.
2. Take this roasted besan in a bowl and add crushed almonds in it.Allow it to cool for a while.
3. Now add powdered sugar in it and mix properly with your hands.
4. Take a handful of this mixture and roll it in even sized laddoos.

Note: If you find it difficult to roll the laddoos just add some more melted ghee in it.

Sending this recipe to the event Think Spice...Think sweet treats hosted by Sunita @ Sunita's World.
