Tips to Besan Laddu

  • Roast the gram flour on medium heat and stir continuously until it begins to release ghee and a nutty aroma.
  • Use a heavy bottom pan to prevent the besan from burning.
  • You can use a finer texture besan or a coarser texture besan. However, the texture of the Ladoo will be gritty if you use the coarser besan.
  • You can store Besan Laddus in an airtight container to keep it fresh for 6-8 days at room temperature and up to 15 days in the refrigerator.

FAQs on Besan Laddu

1. Why are my Besan Ladoos sticky?

If your Besan Ladoos are sticky, you probably added too much Ghee when the roasted Besan was still hot. You can solve the problem in two ways—keep your Besan mixture in the refrigerator for 10-15 minutes or add more Besan or powdered nuts to your mixture and roast it for a while. This should prevent your Besan Ladoos from being sticky.

2. Why is my Besan Ladoo bitter?

Besan Ladoo can turn bitter due to excessive roasting of gram flour (besan). To prevent this, ensure a gentle, medium flame roast with continuous stirring until it attains a golden, aromatic hue without becoming brown, preventing any burnt taste.

3. What to do if my Besan Laddu is not binding?

If your Besan Laddu is not binding properly, you can improve the consistency by adding more condensed milk. Gradually incorporate small amounts of condensed milk into the mixture while continuously mixing it. This will help bind the ingredients together and create a smoother texture for your Laddus.

4. Can I make Besan Ladoos if I have allergies to nuts?

Yes, you can omit nuts from the Besan Ladoos recipe or replace them with pumpkin seeds or sunflower seeds. You can also add dried fruits like raisins or cranberries for a burst of sweetness and texture.

Remember to adjust the Besan Ladoo recipe and cooking process based on individual preferences, dietary restrictions, and allergies.
