besan ke ladoo

Besan ladoos/gram flour sweet balls are one of the very famous ,easiest ,taditional and common indian sweets,my sisters and brother loves them like anything,my mom makes very yum besan ladoos occassionally, specially on diwali or any festivals but she doesnt add rava/suji and any dry fruits in it so when i went through manjula's kitchen ,i saw the ladoos with same procedure and same ingredients what my mom makes but the only addition was semolina which i thought was a very new and unique idea to make ladoos with and so immediately i boomarked it,a couple of days back my friend invited me on tea-party for the first time at her place, so i made these ladoos for her and she loved them,thank you so much manjula aunty for these lip-smacking ,delicious and yummilicious ladoos.

ingredients :
2 cups besan/gram flour
4 tbsp rava/semolina/suji
1/2-3/4th cup ghee + 1 tbsp extra
3/4th cup-1 cup sugar (i used raw sugar ) (adjust acc to your taste )
cardomom pwd to taste (optional )
rasins/almonds/pistachios for taste/garnish (optional)
method :
Heat a deep ,heavy bottomed pan,add ghee, besan and fry on a low -medium flame for 7-8 mins,add suji/rava and fry again till the besan is  brown in colour and all the raw smell is gone,keep roasting continously or else the besan wll get burnt and stick to the pan.Turn off the heat,add cardomom pwd,suar and mix well.Add the sliced almonds and let the besan mixture cools down a bit,but still should be warm enough to bind into ladoos.Make the desired size ladoos taking little mixture at a time,dip one side of laddoos in 1 tbsp extra ghee and stick a raisin or unsalted sliced pistachios for garnishing.Store this ladoos in air tight containers for a week .
