Besan Ladoo - Chick Pea Flour dessert

Made n Enjoyed
Hello readers,

Aum Vakratunda mahakaya surya koti samaprabha
Nirvignam kuru may deva sarva kaarye shu sarva daa

"O lord with the twisted trunk, with the effulgence of a billion suns, always remove the obstacles when I am on an auspicious undertaking."

 Om gan ganpataye namho namha
Sri siddhivinayak namho nahma
Ashta vinayak namho namha
Ganapati bappa morya


JCO wishes all our readers and followers a Happy Ganesh Chaturthi...May Ganpati blessings bring you lots of success in all your endeavours !!

Today we are celebrating the hindu festival Ganesh Chaturthi, birth anniversary of Lord Ganesha..we believe that Ganeshji adores sweet food thus we offer him a variety of sweets..The most famous being Ladoos. So for this day, I have made Besan Ladoo which are my favourite too

This recipe follows how I like my Ladoos- not too sticky but slightly crumbly...
Beware, this recipe isn't meant to be quick and easy but the results will be more than satisfying !!

You will need :-

Dry roast chick pea flour in a non stick pan for at least 35-40 minutes on a very low heat. ( do not be tempted to turn up the heat, it will only burn )
You will get a lovely roasting aroma and slight change of colour when the flour is well roasted.
After 40 minutes, add semolina and roast for 5 minutes more.
Now add ghee and keep roasting both flour and ghee for 12-15 minutes on a very low heat, making sure there aren't any lumps formed. Switch off the heat.
Add almond and saffron masala and sugar.
Mix well, and let the mixture cool.
Take little amount of mixture into your palm and roll into small balls.
Perfect and scrumptious besan ladoos are ready to offer to Lord Ganesha.
I'm pretty sure he will love them :)

GANPATI BAPPA MORYA, AGLE BARAS TO JALDI AA," ("Father Ganpati, Next Year Come Again") O Ganpati Bapa Moriya – Farewell O Lord Ganpati!
Gheema ladu choriya – One who avails 'ladus' soaked in Ghee
Pudcha varsi laukariya – Return in haste next year
Bapa Moriya Re, Bapa Moriya Re – O Lord, farewell; O Lord, farewell…

Once they are completely cooled, store them in airtight container for 4-5 days.
Once again have a happy and safe Ganesh Chaturthi !!!!!!!!!!!
