Hope everyone had a happy weekend.We too had a good one.Its summer vacation for kids and both are enjoying playing at home and outside with their bikes.They have lot of fun activities to do and at times helping mom too.Today's recipe is a demand from my kids to have something sweet and they helped me in making balls too.Besan Laddus,another popular Indian sweet and easy to make.But this time,I opted to prepare this in the microwave as it looked very simple to prepare.Do try this out in 6 minutes and enjoy with your loved ones !!
Recipe SourceSouth Indian Recipes


Ingredients
Besan flour 1 1/2 cup(refer notes)
Sugar 1 cup(refer notes)
Cardamom powder 1 tsp
Raisins 2 tbsp
Ghee 4 tbsp+ 1tbsp
Milk 2 tbsp(refer notes)


Method-
-Add 2 tbsp of ghee to the besan flour and mix well.Microwave on high for 3 minutes.Give a stir after each minute.
-Then add 2 tbsp of ghee again and microwave for another 2 minutes giving a stir after each minute.It gives a nice aroma and don't over do it,just that it changes color slightly.
-Take another bowl ,put the raisins and add ghee(1 tbsp) and then microwave for 45 seconds -1 minute.(The raisins puffs up and turns golden brown.
-Mix the cardamom powder ,raisins and sugar.Give a quick toss.
-Cool slightly & start shaping them once you can handle it.Add milk if required,that is if it doesn't hold shape.
-Make laddus and serve !!


Servings ~ 12 laddus

NOTES
* I have used the besan laddu flour.Its slightly coarse than the fine besan flour.
* You can omit the milk and add ghee to in place of milk.
* Keep a watch on the raisins from 45 seconds.Don't micrwave more than a minute as it gets harder after that.
* The sugar available here is less granulated compared to the Indian supply.If you are trying this in India its better to powder or ground coarse and then add.
