Besan ladoo recipe - how to make besan ladoo- kadale hittina ladoo - Split bengal gram flour dry fruits laddu recipe

Besan ladoo recipe - This  is  a wonderful traditional sweet,  I adore the whole texture and taste of these ladoos. Keeping in mind the amount of ghee and sugar I use in these ladoos, I prepare it only during festivals and special occasions. I made these ladoos on diwali festival as one of the naivedya dish and I am posting it now. Usually, the besan ladoo is made with slightly coarse bengal gram flour, but can also be prepared by using fine bengal gram flour. The method of preparation is very simple and easy, but taste wise this ladoo is really delicious. So, dig into these ladoos and enjoy the traditional taste. Earlier I had posted another  version of  besan ladoo, check out the recipe here.
