Besan Ladoo

Makes: 15-20

Ladoo Besan - 2 cups
Powdered sugar - 1 1/2 cups
Ghee - 1 cup
Green cardamoms
Any other dry fruit of your choice

1. In a pan, dry roast the besan for about 15-20 mins on low flame or till it slightly changes color.
2. Then add the ghee, 1/2 cup at a time and keep mixing on low flame till the besan is well roasted and the ghee starts leaving the sides. [ approx 30-45 min]
3. Peel the cardamom seeds, and crush these along with the cashews into a coarse mixture.
4. Mix this into the besaem and allow to cool a bit.
5. When the mixture is warm, not hot, add the sugar and mix well.
6. Taking about 2 tbsp of the besan mixture in hand make round balls. Make the ladoos when the mixture is still warm as it helps to shape the ladoo better.
7. Top it with the dry fruit of your choice and place it on a clean dish. Continue making the ladoos with the rest of the mixture.
8. Allow the ladoos to cool and store in an airtight container.
