Besan Ladoo – A Classic Indian Sweet


  • 1/3 cup A2 cow ghee
  • 1 cup roasted chickpeas/gram flour
  • ½ cup organic powdered jaggery
  • ⅛ teaspoon green cardamom seeds powder


  1. Heat the ghee in a pan on low heat. Once hot, add gram flour and mix.
  2. Roast the gram flour on low flame stirring continuously.
  3. In the beginning, it will be a little lumpy and it will be an effort to stir, but keep on stirring.
  4. As it roasts, it starts to loosen up and becomes like a thick paste. It will not be lumpy anymore.
  5. You will also feel the texture has become light now.
  6. As it starts to change colour, there’d be a nutty aroma and the paste will be a little runny with ghee oozing out.
  7. This is when the gram flour is roasted and ready.
  8. Transfer it to a plate and let it cool.
  9. Now add powdered jaggery and cardamom powder.
  10. Mix well with your fingertips and form a loose dough.
  11. Roll it into small ladoos and garnish it with chopped nuts.


  1. Homemade sweets are never a problem. Lifestyle is. Enjoy and relish the beauty of Indian homemade sweets by making it the right way and eating it rightly too.
  2. Gram flour is highly nutritious due to its high protein content, fibre, iron, magnesium, copper, zinc, folate and Vitamin B-6.
  3. It’s easy to carry and can be relished in moderation by diabetics too.
  4. Variation: Adding a pinch of turmeric, pepper and topping it sesame seeds makes it even more nutritious and immunity boosting.
