Besan Ladoo #sikandalouscuisine

This was my first attempt at Besan Ladoo's and I really was pleased with the flavors and consistency - the ' look ' left a lot to be desired as you can see ! I guess I am too impatient to get into pretty plating and shapes , something I should change considering all the efforts.
2 Cups Besan.
2/3d Cup Ghee.
2/3d Cup Castor Sugar
1/3d Cup Grated Gur / jaggery .
3-4 Tablespoons Crushed Walnuts.
1/2 Teaspoon Elachi Powder

Anyway so here goes . The trick is to roast besan lovingly and slowly and for as long as you can - almost till your arms fall off .You then get a super slightly dark color and some fantastic aromas .I added crushed walnuts at this stage , and gave another 3-4 minutes of roasting . Walnuts added a beautiful flavor - dense and delicious.

At this stage add ghee , bhuno away for another 10-20 minutes on low heat. Then cool besan down totally for a few hours. Add sugar/jaggery and ilachi powder , mix well , form small ladoos after greasing your palms with ghee - and leave to set . Delicious .
