Besan Laddu

Besan undi/laadu/laddu is a very famous sweet that is usually made during festivals. We have a festival – Naaga Panchami or Nagara Panchami when my mom makes five types of laddus (atleast). So here are a few – these are all sent by my mom and dad. I am just posting the recipes :-).


3 cups besan (gram )flour, 2 cups powdered sugar, 1 ½ cup ghee,  1 teaspoon cardamom (elaichi) powder, 1 teaspoon milk, dry fruits – kaju and raisins.


  • Heat ghee in a kadai.
  • Add the besan flour and roast till golden brown. You should also get a nice aroma of the roasted besan.
  • Sprinkle 1 teaspoon  milk on it and allow to cool.
  • Mix the powdered sugar, cardamom powder and dry fruits.
  • Prepare laddus by sqeezing a handful of the mixture and rolling into a ball.
