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 or sugar 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 mins.
  • If the above tip doesn’t work, 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?

Your besan is likely raw if your Besan Ladoo tastes bitter. As mentioned in the Besan Ladoo recipe, roast the besan until it turns golden brown over a medium flame. Avoid roasting your besan over a high flame as it could turn the flour golden, but it will still be raw.

3. What happens if Besan Laddu is not binding?

Add some warm, melted ghee and stir if the mixture is dry and the Laddu is not binding, or not shaping into balls. Start with one spoonful and add more if necessary. You can even use condensed milk instead of ghee.

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

Yes, you can omit nuts from the Besan Ladoo recipe or replace them with seeds like pumpkin or sunflower. 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.
