Are you sure it is going to take just 10mins(5min prep time & 5 mins cook time) to make ladoos? I doubt..

Its interesting to note that you microwave the besan flour. I usually dry roast it in a wok and that gives a very good flavor. The next time around, I shall try the microwave method and see how it turns out. The picture looks very good.

Nice picture & nice simple recipe although what if I don't have a microwave?

Cook it for sometime in a wok, till the chick pea flour (besan) becomes a little golden. You have to continuously stir it though. This is really good if it turns out right, you shd give it a shot :)

Besan ladoo is my all-time favorite. I tried it yesterday and tasted awesome, although mine didn't look as smooth as the ones in the image. Is it coz i missed out something or i cut down on the quantity of sugar or ghee? Would be great if you could please let me know!
lovish's picture
mam, i m not having a microwave is there any other recipe 4 besan ladoos using gas stove
vandana's picture
The ladus look lovely sonal. Have to try the microwave technique. I generally roast the besan in a pan. This would be faster i guess.
