Besan-Oats Ladoo

As the schools close for summer vacation, my darling Lil’M is at home all the time…I am on searching for some good summer course for her on painting as she is very fond of it. Though I have bought her some colouring books and crayons to play with…she gets bored easily and most of the time ends up watching TV. 
‘Chota Bheem’ is her favourite cartoon these days. Evenings when I take her out for cycling, after every one round she will come to me and says…mamma ladoo…and in the air I toss a ladoo, and she acts as if she has caught it and ate it…and eating that virtual ladoo has given her energy…then she goes on for another round riding her cycle. Seeing this all the kids who come down for riding or playing asks for ladoo….This has become a play for the kids these days.
Besan-Oats Ladoo
Whenever I ask Lil’M to keep back all her toys in the basket, she comes to me and says mamma ladoo…and I will toss one virtually and she acts as if she has really caught a ladoo and eating it…I am totally floored seeing her acting skills. With Lil’M at home, I thought I will make these ladoo’s in real for her…just to see how she will react seeing real ‘Chota Bheem ladoos’…
Besan-Oats Ladoo
When Lil’M was taking her afternoon power nap, I made these and clicked some pics too by the time she got up. Later in the evening when she got up, she asked me what’s the aroma that is lingering in our house…? I was quite surprised to hear her ask that…these days kids are smart…I must say…I asked her to close her eyes and bought ladoo’s in front of her…and asked her to open eyes…she was so happy to see…and asked me are these all for me…??? awww…I said yeah….for you my Chota Bheem…with a shy smile she hugged me and started nibbling ladoo…
Besan-Oats Ladoo
  • 1 cup Besan/Chickpea flour/Senaga Pindi
  • ½ cup Oats
  • ¾ cup powdered Sugar
  • ¼ tbsp. Cardamom powder
  • ¼ cup Ghee
  • 1-2 tbsp. Pistachio, coarsely powdered
Besan-Oats Ladoo
  • In a heavy bottom cooking vessel on medium flame, dry roast oats for 2-3 minutes by tossing gently. Collect on to a plate and leave it to cool. Once cool make a fine powder of it. Set aside.
  • Now in the same pan add besan and on medium flame dry roast by continuously stirring until raw smell of besan disappears. Upon roasting for 10-12 minutes, the color of besan starts to change and nice roasted aroma of besan starts.
  • At this time turn off the flame and add powdered sugar and cardamom powder. Mix gently using a wooden spoon and set aside.
  • Now add spoon by spoon melted hot ghee and gently fold in the mixture of roasted besan, roasted oats powder, powdered sugar and cardamom powder.
  • When the mixture is slightly cool to handle, then grease your hands with ghee and shape them into desired sized ladoos.
  • Sprinkle coarsely powdered pistachio or any nut of your choice and serve.
  • Add love to make these ladoos taste 'Yummy'.
Besan-Oats Ladoo
Dry roasting besan is critical and important step in this recipe. At one point the besan will start burning from bottom, so be careful. Continuously and gently stir besan up and down. Nicely roasted besan gives good nice and nice aroma to the ladoo’s.
