Ganesh Chaturthi Special-- Besan Ke Laddoo

One of the very famous sweet or Indian mithai “Besan Ke Laddoo” which is must for the any festival and celebration in India especially Northern India. This is made at our home in winter season also. Besan ke laddoo is very easy to in making and preparing… very few ingredients are required... You add nuts and cardamom for more tastier.
I posted this recipe especially for great occasion Ganesh Chaturthi which celebrated on 19 Sept. 2012 in whole India and also for blogging marathon# 20 under theme of Ganesh Chaturthi. Under this recipe, we roast the Bengal gram flour in ghee and mix with coconut and sugar for great flavour.
Ganesha Chaturthi, also known as Vinayaka Chaturthi, is the Hindu festival celebrated on the occasion of birthday of Lord Ganesha, the son of Shiva and Parvati, who is believed to bestow his presence on earth for all his devotees in the duration of this festival. Ganesha is widely worshipped as the god of wisdom, prosperity and good fortune and traditionally invoked at the beginning of any new venture or at the start of travel.
The festival, also known as Ganeshotsav ("festival of Ganesha") is observed in the Hindu calendar month of Bhaadrapada, starting on the shuklachaturthi (fourth day of the waxing moon period). The date usually falls between 19 August and 20 September. The festival lasts for 10 days, ending on Anant Chaturthi. While celebrated all over India, it is most elaborate in Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka and Goa.

Preparation Time: 5 Minutes
Cooking Time: 30-35 Minutes
Serving: 8 Laddoo’s
1 1/4 Cup Bengal Gram Flour/ Besan
1/2 Cup Clarifying Ghee/ Desi Ghee
1/2 Cup Desiccated Coconut
1/4 Cup Slivered Almonds
3/4 Cup Powdered Sugar

Chop the almonds and shallow roast in little ghee for golden and crisp. Sift the flour and heat the desi ghee on non- stick wok on medium flame. When ghee is hot enough, add flour in it. Roasting the flour continuously on medium flame 15-20 minutes till little golden color and aroma of flour begun. Don’t be overheating the flour. Now remove from the fire and add sugar. Mix well.
Combine the roasted flour and sugar mixture, fried almonds and coconut in one bowl. Now bind tightly this mixture to form the shape of laddoo in palm. Serve this sweet chickpeas flour ball or Besan Laddoo in this Ganesh Chaturthi to friends and relatives. Garnish with Chopped almonds.
