Deepavali Special - Besan Ladoo
1. Channa dhal 2 cups(soak for 4 - 5 hours)
2. Sugar 1 - 1.25 cups
3. Cardomom 11
4. Nutmeg powder a pinch
5. Saffron 4 or 5
7. Almond slices
Drain water from Channa dhal. Grind this to a coarse mixture and add it to a glass bowl. Add a teaspoon of ghee and mix it. Microwave the mixture for 2 minutes. They mix it thoroughly. Microwave the mixture for 2 minutes. Let it cool for little bit. The mixture would be cooked and be clumpy. Try to seperate the clumps with your fingers. If it is hard use the food processor to reduce the mixture to rava consistency. Now heat a pan and add 1/2 tsp of ghee. Add the mixture to it and add sugar, cardomom, nutmeg and roasted almond slices / raisins. Stir it for few minutes till it gets slightly sticky. Now after it cools down - roll it with your hands.
These ingedients are enough to make 30 ladoos(small).
