Recipe for laddus
Suji(semolina)- 1 cup
Besan -2 cups
Desi Ghee or vanaspati ghee - 300 grams
Sugar - 1.5 cups
Cardamom powder - 1 tspn
Dry fruits of your choice
Take 2 tblspn of ghee in a pan and roast semolina(suji) on low to medium flame till it gets little brown gives nice aroma.
Keep it in a plate. Now take rest of the ghee and heat it. Pour beasn in the ghee and roast it on low to medium flame till it gets nice golden brown color and starts giving nice nutty aroma. As there is ghee so be careful it splatters too much. Also keep stirring so it will bot stick and burn. When its roasted remove it and put in a plate.(can keep in the same plate with roasted suji). Now in a pan add 1/2 cup water in sugar and heat it to make 1 string syrup. When it reaches to 1 string consistency switch off the stove. Quickly add suji and besan into the syrup and mix it well. There should not be any lumps. Add cardamom powder and crushed/chopped dry fruits. Keep it to cool for some time and keep stirring occasionally. This time suji absorbs the syrup. When it is warm (on tolerable temperature) start making laddus. Can garnish with more dry fruits. Can also add grated coconut while mixing dry fruits, but it may give smell if you keep the laddus for long time.
