hey guys I am Nisa Homey and welcome back
to my channel today i’m sharing a super-healthy besan laddu recipe for
diwali. homemade basin ladoos are a treat for the whole family
or you can pack this as a Diwali gift for your loved ones I made these ladoos
without refined sugar just the way besan ladoos were made traditionally so that
you can enjoy your Diwali in a much healthier and guilt-free way so without
wasting much time let’s get started with the recipe first, I am roughly chopping
some cashew nuts I’m using 1/2 cup of desi ghee in this recipe so into my cast
iron pan I’m adding in 1/4 cup Desi Ghee and once the ghee is heated I’m adding
in two cups of besan flour also known as chickpea flour mix the besan and the
Desi Ghee for about a minute and then add in little more desi ghee and mix
well for about 2 minutes on low flame and then add in the rest of the Desi
Ghee so in this recipe I am using 1/2 cup Desi Ghee for 2 cups of besan flour
mix this really well. Nevermind the clumps in the basin as the ghee when it
starts to release out the basin will become smooth note that I’m using a cast
iron pan which retains more heat hence I am cooking on low heat
remember that desi ghee helps to reduce the glycemic index and also helps to
assimilate vitamins and minerals and this actually makes these ladoos
nutrient dense after about seven minutes the besan has started to become smooth
so keep on stirring it and remember that if you leave it unattended
it may get burnt. 10 minutes later desi ghee has started releasing out and 15
minutes later desi ghee has released out and the besan
has become creamy keep on stirring and after about 20 to 25 minutes the besan
has started to thicken and has started turning to a light golden brown color
along with a nice flavor of roasted besan. now, I am quickly freshly grinding
some seeds of about 6 cardamoms and I’m adding it into the besan and
mixing it really well now, freshly ground cardamom gives a nice
flavor so if possible try to use freshly ground cardamom now turn off the heat
and add in one tablespoon chopped cashewnuts or you can use any nut of your
choice like pista or badam and mix the nuts really well. The cashew nuts will
get roasted in the residue heat and as you can see the besan has changed color
and is nicely roasted. now transfer the pan from the gas stove and I’m placing
it on a wooden cutting board so that the heat comes down a little and I’m mixing
it really well as that will also help the heat to come down a little and once
it has cooled down a little and in 1 and 1/4 cups of organic jaggery powder and
mix well now you can increase jaggery powder up to one and a half cups if you
prefer more sweetness in your ladoos now mix the jaggery powder really well the
residue heat of the besan and mix will help the jaggery to melt so once the
mixture starts to cool down it will thicken but make sure that you mix the
jaggery really well into the besan mix so that if there are any lumps in
the jaggery it will melt and incorporate into the mix. Unlike refined sugar
jaggery is rich in iron and folate and a much healthier option than refined sugar
the buying links of the organic jaggery I’m using will be updated below this video
now just to make sure that the jaggery is well mixed into the besan mix I’m
using a flat spoon to mix. once nicely mixed allow it to cool down and when
they are still warm pinch off lemon sized ball and roll into small laddus
and lastly place a fat pinch of chopped cashew nuts on top and lightly press it
down instead of cashing as you can use any nut of your choice like maybe
chopped pistachios or even badam. so guys do enjoy your Diwali with these
homemade jaggery besan ladoos with family and friends or you can even pack
this as a Diwali gift for your loved ones. Don’t forget to Like, comment, and

blessed Diwali thank you for watching and until
