Besan Ladoo is one of my favorite sweets that I often prepare whenever there is a family gathering at home. In fact, I make Besan Ladoo in bulk during Diwali for the purpose of making gift boxes. Though popular all over the country but in North India. Besan ki Ladoo is a popular delicacy.
Though tastes amazing and very rich but Besan Laddu actually prepared with very basic ingredients. I have seen my mother making it quite often. She used to make the Besan Laddu in bulk for us. The Ladoo can be stored for several days. Maa used to pack it for me while I used to go back to my hostel or workplace.Print
