Besan Ladoo- A Heartfull for a Little Sweetheart


 
My lil'princess turned two this week, and, apart from the traditional cake and candles, I decided to make and take some ladoos to our local Sai Baba Temple here, for the place has become like our second home now. I have never been too keen on the Oh-My God-So -Sweet-and- Rich Indian desserts, but ladoos are irresistible, and thought, auspicious too!


I have borrowed the recipe from Manjulaskitchen.com:

Manjula Ji does a great job of explaining every step of it.  I took the liberty and made some changes, like using brown sugar instead of white one, and replacing pistachoes with almonds. I made about 110 small ladoos, and they went like "hot cakes" on Thursday, Baba's big Aarthi day. 






 Please help yourselves!
