  4. When the mixture is warm, combine well to form a smooth dough.Then shape balls with your hands.You can even grease your hands with ghee to avoid sticking.I got 8 lemon sized ladoos as shown below.How to make besan ladoo - Step4
You can even garnish with almonds/pisatas for extra crunch.Let it cool completely then transfer to an airtight container and enjoy your homemade ladoos.

My Notes:

  • Make sure you roast besan flour till raw smell leaves else it will give a raw taste to the ladoos.
  • You can even add add 2 tbsp roasted sooji along with besan flour to make the ladoo.It will give nice crunchiness to the ladoo.
  • With just 1/4 cup of ghee you can form balls but the ladoo will not be moist. So while shaping I added extra 3 tbsp to make the dough mosit and smooth.
  • You can even add pistachios and almonds for garnishing the ladoos.

  12. The ladoos are really tempting.Can you please clarify whether the ladoos will become hard as days goes by? Also can we use jaggery instead of sugar?

    1. The traditional way to make besan laddu is to use sugar only...may be you can try with jaggery and see not sure about the taste.The laddos will not become hard...

  21. Just made it, turned out very nicely :) Thanks!
    I ground the sugar to make a powder however the dough had a grainy texture when tasted it so I roasted the dough ( broke it into pieces) and that helped the sugar melt.

    1. If you are not confident then add ghee little by little so that you can have control over it.

  27. Just made these and they are just so melt-in-the-mouth good!! I had tried a different method where the flour is toasted first and then mixed with ghee but your method turned out just brilliant!! 😊😊
