Besan ke ladoo

Happy Dhanterus to all!This is my 75th post.My baby blog is growing day by day.And  I am really very happy for the response that I am getting and inspiring me more to do my job better. Dhanterus is the first day of the five day Diwali festival.The word Dhan means wealth and therus means 13th day as per the Hindu calendar.So today and  the following next 4 days are  very auspicious to us.Coming back to the recipe Besan means gram flour.I adapted this recipe from Sanjeev kapoor’s book and adjusted the measurements as per my needs.This ladoo is very popular and very easy to prepare.I dedicate this ladoo for my blog and for you people for Dhanterus!
