Laddus are traditional yellow sphere shaped sweets. It is made from gram flour batter. The preparation of laddu is time taking but very interesting and different. The gram flour batter is poured in the cooking vessel through a sieve. The small balls are formed due to perforation. These balls are crumbled together to make larger balls called laddu or motichoor k laddu. These sweets are served in Pakistani Mehndi and Mayoun functions and fed to brides to be.



  • 2 cups of besan (gram flour)
  • 1 cup of ghee or clarified butter
  • 1 cup of powdered sugar
  • 1/4 tsp of cardamom powder
  • 1/4 cup of chopped nuts (almonds, cashews, pistachios or any nuts of your choice)


  1. Heat the ghee in a non-stick pan over medium heat.
  2. Once the ghee is hot, add the besan and stir continuously to roast it until it turns golden brown and you can smell a nutty aroma. This should take about 10-15 minutes.
  3. Once the besan is roasted, turn off the heat and let it cool down for a few minutes.
  4. Add the powdered sugar, cardamom powder, and chopped nuts to the besan mixture and mix well.
  5. Take a small amount of the mixture and roll it between your palms to form a small round ball (about 1-2 inches in diameter). Repeat this with the remaining mixture to form the laddus.
  6. Let the laddus cool down to room temperature and then store them in an airtight container.

Enjoy your delicious Laddus!
