I have to tell you here, besan ke laddu is one of the easiest or probably the easiest diwali sweet to make. Just stir-roast some besan in the pan and once it turns golden, mix it with powdered sugar and an equal quantity of ghee and cook with constant stirring. Once the mixture hardens, cool and roll into balls and serve! Happy Diwali!
