Besan Ladoo


½ kg besan (chickpea flour)
1 bowl ghee (or as required)
1 small cup powdered sugar or as needed
Cardamom powder
A handful of cashewnuts
Microwave safe bowl
Mix the besan and ghee in a microwave safe bowl.
Heat on high for 8 minutes (time may vary slightly for different microwave ovens).
Stir after a minute and continue heating.
Keep checking and stirring after every minute.
At the end of 8 minutes, the mixture will be a nice reddish brown and will have a nice aroma to it.The mixture should not look too dry, otherwise the ladoos will not hold up their shape.
Let it cool completely.
Once cooled, add the powdered sugar, cardamom powder and raisins. Mix well and then make small round ladoos out of it.
If you realize that the ghee is not sufficient once you start making the ladoos, just heat some ghee and add to the mixture.
(the above quantity makes 40 ladoos)
