Hello Helena

I add sugar to besan while hot and then bind laddoos while besan and sugar mix are still warm. Try warming one laddoos worth of mix in a microwave for 10 seconds and see if that helps. If this doesn’t work, I don’t have an answer for you. If it works, you can repeat the process with small amounts (3-4 laddoos worth of besan at a time).

I follow my mums recipe:

I added sugar ( not powdered) in the hot roasted besan's not melting in the besan there any remedy to correct it now?

Mamta, on 21/4/2020 09:22am

Sugar is not supposed to melt into the besan. It is just mixed in it and then bound into laddoos.

Sorry Shivani, I can't visualize your problem! Why did you add milk to besan laddoos?

Sorry, don't know the solution to your problem.

Put it ina mixer and give few pulse..and ur ladoos will hold d shape...

Mamta, on 19/5/2020 04:03pm

Poomathi, that is a brilliant suggestion!

I have added sugar and made it to a Ladoo but it tastes a bit of raw besan. How to rectify this

Mamta, on 21/5/2020 10:54am

It is not possible, as far as I know, to roast the besan more, after adding sugar. In my experience, it will become chewy and useless.

Hey, I made besan laddu, added a little too much water to my besan, and my boora wasn't a fine powder so i grinded it. it became toffee like, and I don't know what went wrong. So I checked your forum, added some more sugar (but accidentally put more ghee in it) so ofcourse it didn't turn out well. Then I added dry besan roasted in ghee. And then some more dry roasted besan. Now it's acquired the texture of a halwa, but i wanted to make laddus since I have to send somewhere. Can this be fixed? It's too much to waste and use as halwa only

Mamta, on 24/5/2020 06:21am

1. Make fresh laddoos for sending to someone, properly following the amounts and the recipe.

2. Divide what halva you have made accidentally into smaller portions and freeze them. You can take out a portion from time to time and use it up for the family.

3 Or spread it on a tray. cut it down into Burfi shapes and use it that way. If you keep them in the fridge, they will become firm.

I can't think of anything else that you can do!

Meeta Sharma, on 29/5/2020 09:50pm

I tried atta ladoo for first time but it’s not binding.apart from putting ghee what remedies can be taken so that it comes out as laddoo itself and not Prasad. Thanks

, on 30/5/2020 03:34pm

These are the only atta flour laddoos I have ever made, so can’t answer yours question.

I made besan ke laddoo with a lot more ghee than intended, and once it was almost cool, i added granular sugar (not powdered). it was hard to make it into balls or reduce the size of the sugar particles with hand. I tried adding extra roasted bean. But it just was too liquidy to be made into balls. I kept it in a Tiffin box for a few hours and then I was able to make balls, however it is still sticky and the biting into the sugar particles ruins the experience of the laddoo. I have refrigerated it now.

Do you think breaking the balls and heating them again in a pan will help reduce the size of the sugar particles? My mixy was not working hence all this trouble.

Please help.

Mamta, on 22/6/2020 09:01pm

I was going to suggest that you grind it in Mixer, but since yours is broken, you obviously can’t. Will a friend or neighbour let you use theirs?

Try heating a very small portion in a pan/microwave. If the sugar melts easily, spread the whole thing in a greased tray and let it Ser. Once set, cut is into squares/diamond shapes called Burfi:


Julian, on 23/6/2020 03:28pm

I tried heating it in a pan, but the sugar particles didn't melt even when the besan had turned dark brown. :/ Never again will I make this without powdered sugar.
