Ingredients
  • Besan Flour - 2 cup
  • Powdered Sugar - 1 cup
  • Ghee - 1 cup
  • Cardamom powder - 1 Teaspoon
  • Broken Cashews - ¼ cup
Directions
  1. Sift the besan flour; Roast the sifted besan flour over low flame, till the raw smell disappears and set aside.
  2. Heat a teaspoon of ghee in a pan, add the broken cashews and roast until golden brown, set aside.
  3. Reserve 3-4 tablespoons of ghee for greasing hands while shaping ladoos; Heat the remaining ghee in a heavy bottomed pan.
  4. Now add the fried besan flour and roast over low flame till the colour changes to golden brown; Stir continuously.
  5. Now add cardamom powder and give a quick mix and remove from the flame.
  6. Now add the powdered sugar, fried cashews and combine well.
  7. When the mixture is warm, combine well to form a smooth dough.
