Besan Laddu.

BESAN LADDU (बेसनाचा लाडू )
Besan laddu is a very easy sweet to make and is popular throughout India, especially at festivals and celebrations, especially Diwali. Enjoy the sumptuous besan laddoos with friends and relatives
Ingredients : (Approx. 20 Laddus)
1 cup besan (chickpea flour) , 3/4 cup Ghee ( Clarified butter)
2 tbspn milk , 1.25 cup powdered sugar , 1/2 tspn cardamon powder.
Procedure :
Heat ghee in a nonstick and add the besan to it. Stir well for about 15 minutes on medium heat. Keep an eye on the pan all the while so that it doesn't stick to the bottom of the pan. After 15 minutes it changes color . Then add 2 tbspn milk. Quickly stir the mixture as it has lost all the moisture and adding milk/cream adds moisture. It fluffs up and if not stirred continuously , it might get charred.
Turn down the heat and keep stirring for another 5 minutes. Your nose knows that its done. Turn off the heat now and let get to room temperature. Add the powdered sugar and cardamon powder. Mix well with hands and make laddus. You may add raisins at this stage if you like.
