I just love the sound of the word laddoo. It reminds me of a chubby bubbly baby.
Besan laddoo is one of most popular laddoo.This Ladoo or laddu is a made with besan - chickpea flour - bengal gram flour.
Chickpea flour(bengal gram flour) is known as besan in hindi and other Indian languages.
It takes a bit of time to patiently roast the besan but making the laddoo is a simple and easy process. This laddoo lasts for more than a month. Most of the time it gets over before that as it is very much in demand.

Making besan laddu
Remember to keep the flame low while roasting. Do not let the flour turn brown. It will taste bitter.
Powder the sugar fine. If not the laddoo will become crunchy.
Traditionally, besan ladoo is made with ghee. If you do not want to use ghee, you may use any vegetable oil. Vegans can use coconut oil. The taste will change accordingly.
Enjoy with family and friends.
