Microwave Besan Laddoo (Tee of Bhatukli)

My first ever attempt at making Besan Laddoo. It turned out ok, definitely edible and I will make it again. :) Reminded me of the ghee-oozing besan laddoos we had in Rajasthan. Food memories can sometimes be so strong. This is following the recipe posted by Tee of Bhatukli here. Thanks, Tee!

Ingredient (makes 12 laddoos)

Besan - 1 cup
Ghee - 4 tbsp
Sugar 3/4 cup
Cardamom Powder - 1/4 tsp

Mix the besan and ghee for 5 minutes, stirring every 1 min.
Cool the mixture and add sugar, cardamom powder when it is slightly warm. Mix.
Make small balls and let it cool.

Some tips by Tee:
  1. The mixture should not look too dry, otherwise the ladoos will not hold up their shape.
  2. If you realize that the ghee is not sufficient once you start making the ladoos, just heat some ghee and add to the mixture.

Hi Vimmi: I am sure they must have tasted like the magaj laddoo we get in Puri Jagannath temple. Thanks for the idea.
