Besan Laddo

For BM#26 the first theme I chose is “Cooking from a cook book of different authors with a single ingredient”

I chose “Gram Flour”. Dessert I picked the  cookbook “Temptations”. I have a microwave but I hardly use it. Finally got a chance to make this yummy dessert from this book.

Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#26.

This is the book.

And here is the recipe from the Book


You shall need:

1 cup…. Besan [I used the mots wala besan]

1/4 cup.. Castor Sugar

1/2 cup… Ghee

Dry fruit of your choice [I used almond Slivers]


  • Heat ghee in a microwave safe bowl for 1 min at high power.
  • Add besan and cook for 3-4 min at high power, stirring after every 1 min.
  • Reduce the microwave level to 50% and cook for 2-3 min, stir after every 1 min.
  • Add castor sugar and mix well.
  • Let it cool a little.
  • Make 8-10 laddos of the size that you like.
