Besan Ladoo (ChickPeas Flour Balls)

Sorry to all the ladies from the Ashram for saying that I had this recipe on the blog, for some reason I thought I had posted it. Anyways here's the recipe for besan ladoos, I know we had a blast making them and eating them for our party at the yoga ashram. Jami this recipe is especially for you!!!

3 cups besan(chickpea flour)
1 cup ghee
2 cups sugar ( I used powdered)
1/4 cup almonds chopped finely
1/4 tsp cardamom pwd
1/4 cup pistachios ground into a powder for decoration


Roast the besan and ghee on a low medium heat foe about 10 to 15 minutes till golden and until you can smell the nice aroma of roasted besan.
Remove from heat and cool for just a few minutes you do not want it to cool to room temperature.
Add the sugar and almonds and cardamom.
Mix well and make small balls.
Dip only the top of the ladoo into pistachio pwd to decorate.
Enjoy!!! Will add pics later.
