Besan Ke Laddu Recipe

Besan Ke Laddu Recipe:

Besan ka laddu is type of mithai or sweet dish commonly made in Indian homes.During Diwali my mother used to make these mouth watering laddus for us and whole neighborhood would be filled with sweet aroma of besan and ghee.I am being super biased here but I think my mom used to make the worlds best Besan ka Laddu. Anyways It is not really very difficult to make besan ka laddu and anyone can easily make them at home.The dry fruits gives the laddus a crunchy texture which I really like.
