Besan Badam Laddoo
Simple, yet, complex in flavors, this nutty Besan Badam Laddoo is everyone's favorite from the Diwali snack line up. Made with roasting Bengal gram flour and almond flour with ghee and perfumed with cardamom, these rolled balls of sinful goodness is something that you cannot just stop at one.
Servings 50 laddoos
Dry roast the besan and almond flour in a thick bottomed pan, over low heat. Roast for about 20 mins or so, until you get a nutty aroma of roasted flours and the color turns ever so slightly to golden yellow.
Keeping it over low heat, add the ghee to this and mix well, breaking out any clumps.
Keep cooking over low heat till the ghee mixes well with the flours. It will become a slightly runny mix at first and then turn to a thicker dough like consistency.
This should take about 10- 15 more mins.
Add the cardamom, mix well and remove from heat. Let it cool down a little for about 10-12 minutes.
Add the powdered sugar and mix well.
Let rest for 5 mins. It will become a little more of a thick dough, ready to be rolled into balls. Roll into key lime sized balls. This should make about 50 of them.
