Hello friends , sorry for the sudden disappearance from blogging.I had a problem in writer and could not upload the posts.At last my hubby resolved the problem :)
Coming to this post ,I  learnt this from my MIL.She is an expert in making badusha , ladoo , adhirasam ,burfi etc.I told her to make ladoo for my hubby's birthday and of course for blogging too Winking smile

  • Yellow color - 2 pinches
  • Sugar - 1.25 cups
  • Water - As required
  • Cardamom- 4 nos ( powdered )
  • Cloves - 3 nos
  • Cashews - 10 nos (Broken into two)

 

METHOD

  • Take the flour & cooking soda in a bowl.Add water and make a batter of bajji consistency ( Batter must be smooth & slightly thin )
  • Heat oil in a kadai .Take the batter and pour it in a sieve or ladle with round holes.
  • Tap it gently so that small balls of the batter fall into the oil.Fry in batches and set aside.(Do not deep fry the balls till crispy .The balls should be soft .So fry for few seconds)
  • Now take the sugar covered with water in a bowl and make the syrup of **two string consistency.
  • Add cardamom powder, yellow color, Fried cloves & cashews. Add the fried balls to the syrup and mix well.
  • Grease the hands with ghee and make balls of desired size when the mixture is still warm.

NOTE
  • ** Two string sugar syrup :Take the syrup in ur forefinger and press it with thumb finger and release. When u expand , u'll get two strings..
  • If the mixture cools down, balls cannot be made properly.
  • If the sugar syrup crystallizes before mixing the fried balls, add little water to the syrup , boil and bring it to the correct consistency.
  • Store the ladoos in an air tight container .Its shelf life is 10 days.

KITCHEN CLINIC

GRAM FLOUR

Gram flour is a flour made from ground chickpeas. It is also known as chickpea flour,garbanzo flour, or besan (Bengali: বেসন beshon). Used in many countries, it is a staple ingredient in Indian, Pakistani and Bangladeshi cuisines, and, in the form of a paste with water or yoghurt, a popular facial exfoliant in the Indian Subcontinent. Moreover, when mixed with an equal proportion of water, can be used as an egg-replacer in vegan cooking.
Chila (or chilla), a pancake made with gram flour batter, is a popular street and fast food in India.
Gram flour contains a high proportion of carbohydrates but no gluten. Despite this, in comparison to other flours, it has a relatively high proportion of protein.
