Ingredients You'll Need

To embark on the journey of crafting these exquisite sweets, gather the following ingredients:
Chickpea Flour (Besan)
Ghee (Clarified Butter)
Powdered Sugar
Cardamom Powder
Chopped Nuts (Almonds, Cashews)

Roasting the Chickpea Flour
In a heavy-bottomed pan, heat ghee over medium-low heat.

Adding the Aromatics
Sprinkle cardamom powder into the roasted flour and mix well.
The cardamom's fragrance will infuse the mixture with a delightful aroma.
Incorporating Sweetness
Gradually add powdered sugar to the mixture and combine thoroughly.
The sugar will sweeten the mixture and help bind the ladoos.

Shaping the Ladoos

Allow the mixture to cool slightly until it's easy to handle.
Take small portions of the mixture and shape them into round ladoos using your palms.
Garnishing Your Besan Ladoos
Press a piece of chopped nut or a raisin gently onto the top of each ladoo for a decorative touch.
This also adds a delightful crunch and burst of flavor.

Tips for Perfect Besan Ladoos
Roast the chickpea flour on low heat to avoid burning and to achieve an even color.
Ensure that the mixture is warm when shaping the ladoos for easy molding.
Use good quality ghee for an authentic flavor and rich texture.
