Besan Ladoo is a north Indian favourite. The best Besan Ladoo that I have had so far is the prasadam that is offered in Sankat Mochan Temple in Varanasi and ofcourse from my Mom’s kitchen. After her visit to Lucknow in 2014 Besan ladoo became my daughter’s favourite too. Although I make Besan Ladoos almost every month, 2 years later, Besan Ladoo remains my daughter’s favourite.
My mother used to make Besan Ladoos often. My sister lived in a hostel while she was doing her graduation. Every time my sister would come from hostel my mother would make Besan Ladoo for her. When she returned to hostel, her friends used to eagerly wait for the Ladoos. Later when I started working and living away from home, I also looked forward to Besan Laddoos when I got back home.
