1 cup besan
2 tbsp mawa
2 tbsp roasted rava
1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
1-2 tbsp ghee
1 tsp cardamom powder
This Besan mawa ladoo recipe is a fun variation on the typical ladoo. Ladoo are one of the most iconic holiday snacks that are eaten in India. They are popular festival treats that are made with flour, minced dough, and sugar bundled into a small doughnut type sphere. This recipe calls for moong dal and split green beans, ingredients that have a high protein content. The protein content from moong dal helps the laddu gain satiating properties, so you won’t have to risk over eating these tasty snacks, making them a guilt free pleasure.
Ladoos are a dessert, so it wouldn’t be too surprising if you were suspect of their potential health benefits. Although they are in fact sweet and delicious and do possess a certain amount of sugar, they are still healthy primarily due to the besan flour used in its preparation. Besan flour is made from grinded up chickpeas which are a superfood. Every 100 grams of chickpeas contains 57 grams of carbohydrates, making the chickpea an extremely dense source of energy. Chickpeas also help maintain pulmonary health, improve digestion, and even treat diabetes.
