BESAN LADDOO (MICROWAVE) - DIWALI SPECIAL

Besan Laddoo

 
All credit goes to my SIL for teaching me this. I had no idea this can be so easy in microwave :). Thanks a lot sis.

Ingredients:
Besan - 1 cup
Rava - 1/4 cup
Ghee melted - 1 cup
Sugar powdered - 1/2 cup
Almonds and pistachios - garnish




Preparation:

In microwave safe bowl  make sure the bowl is a big deep one as the mixture when heated rises) heat the ghee for 1- 2 mins. Then add the besan and rava slowly and stir with spoon. Now keep this in microwave and heat for about 5 mins. Remove and stir. Again microwave for another 5 mins. Keep this going on every 5 mins till you get the aroma of besan (This is done to remove the raw taste of besan). Keep tasting the mix to see till the raw taste of besan is gone. You will see that the besan mix has changed in color to darker side than it was lighter initially. Once the raw taste of besan is gone, take the bowl out and then add in the powdered sugar and stir nicely. Add more powdered sugar if you need more sweetness. Keep aside to cool. Then keep it in fridge for about 20 mins. The mix will be firm. In a tray spread butter paper.  Now take small balls of the mix and make small balls and place on the tray. Garnish on top with sliced almonds and pistachios. Keep it in fridge for laddoos to be firm. Eat whole heart after 15-20 mins ;P.

Cheers,
Neetz ;)

Note:
1. You can add few strands of saffron too while heating the mix and also for garnish.
2. Keep checking the mix when you keep in microwave. Sometimes you wont need 5 mins for heating depending on the microwave you have as the mix can rise and overflow (the cleaning part is very tough). So keep checking every 2-3 mins.
3. The laddoos are soft and wont be hard.
