1) Add ghee into a pan. Heat it over medium heat. Add besan and stir. First, it will become little thick. But after 5 to 7 minutes, the consistency will be thin. Roast until you sense nice aroma and color changes to golden. It will take approx 35 to 40 minutes for roasting. But, roast over medium low heat and keep stirring continuously. If you stop stirring, besan will stick to the bottom.

Without adding milk:
After 35 to 40 minutes, when besan is roasted nicely, switch off heat. Let the besan cool off. Do not add sugar when besan is hot. Once besan is cold, add cashewnuts, almonds and other dry fruits. Also add sugar, mix and make laddu.

  1. hi,
    with adding milk, how many days the laddus will be eatable?

  2. In cold weather, laddus can stay good for 10-15 days. However, refrigerate after 3-4 days if weather is hot and humid.

  3. Good Morning,
    Dear Vaidehi,

    I have gone through the recipe of Besan Laddoo without sugar syrup but I cant shape them properly. They become flat while shaping them. Please guide what to do.

  4. Hi Prajakta

    Is the mixture crumbly? Add some warm ghee to the mixture and mix. Shape Them like laddus

    If the laddus are becoming flat after shaping them, then that means you have added more ghee than required. Due to ghee, mixture will be more tasty :), but they wont form laddus well. Dry roast 2-3 tbsp besan and add it to the mixture. Mix and make laddus. I think this will work!!

  5. Hi vaidehi... I am always unsuccesful in roasting besan. Either it is raw or gets overdone... Wat can i do?

  7. Hi Sailee

    When you Roast besan, you will have to roast it over low to medium heat. Stir continuously.
    Roasted besan has nice aroma. it changes color to golden after roasting. Do not roast once you get the desired color. This way you will get perfectly roasted besan. Keep trying :)

  8. can i make besan ka ladoo with thin besan?

  9. Hello Shivranshu

    Yes it is fine to use thin besan. I have given two methods. Follow the second method and add some milk.

  10. i would like to mention that i make these frequently and they stay outside without refrigeration for a month or so if milk is not used(.i stay in mumbai).if u feel u can not form ladoos just add a bit more of ghee
