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?

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 05:03pm

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 11:54am

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 07:21am

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!

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

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