Besan Ladoo

How to make besan ladoo (Chickpeas flour ladoo)
I have grown up in a family where different types of ladoos are made for children as a snacks. Me and my cousins were hardly ate biscuits ,cookies,chocolates.My childhood was the time when there were not much availability of biscuits, cookies, chocolates, ice creams and deserts as that of today. Cake was only bought for birthday only once in a year. Today wide variety of sweet snacks are easily available or widely made at home also .
So naturally for sugar cravings of children variety of ladoos are prepared by women at home only.We hardly knew any fancy sweet snacks as we grew up eating ladoos, shakkar pare, gujiyas only.
Besa ladoos are one of my favorite from the ladoo league which my mom and grandmother made often for us. I make these ladoss for my children as and when they ask for it.Its protein packed and yummy snack for them. Its simplest to make and only three ingredient ladoo (Cardamom is optional).
Only important top for making this besan ladoo is roasting besan (chickpeas flour).If its not roasted properly besan will stick while eating and won't taste good.Dry fruits like cashews and almonds pieces can be added in besan ladoo for extra rich taste.Enjoy making this ladoos and relive your childhood memories with your children.
