Hello Niki

I am not sure what may cause a strange taste. Difficult to say without looking or tasting it.

Possible reasons;

Uder-fried besan

Burnt/overfied besan

Old besan that may have gone off

I made it 2 times n it has a slight bitter after taste dunno why plzz help

It has never been bitter whenever I have made it. This is a pretty basic recipe. Only thing I can think of is that besan was cooked on too high heat and got burnt.

Hi Marta,

Just made the laddoo.

My laddoo is soft not sure what went wrong. Will they harden if I wait? Is there any remedy nnow to harden them?

Hello Sahiti

yes, the laddoos are a bit soft when freshly made. They should become firmer as they cool, unless you live in a very hot place :).

Try keeping them in the fridge for a bit.

You didn't add too much ghee by any chance, did you?

I roasted rava, besan in ghee and added sugar syrup to their mixture. But the mixture became hard and coarse. Cannot make laddus out of it. What should I do now? I cannot add more sugar syrup as the mixture tastes perfectly sweet right now. Should I roast it with ghee and try again? Also, there are small hard balls in the mixture which tastes very sweet. I think it is probably because of the sugar syrup that hardened after cooling. How can I get rid of these hard pieces? Will the heating with ghee help?

my laddoo taste and the way it had been molded is perfect, but its not drenched in syrup. can i add anything at this tage or should i leave as is?

Hello Punam

I make laddos by adding ground/caster sugar to the friued besan, not syrup. I don't know anyone who makes them with syrup.

If your syrup is thick, 2-3 wire/thread consistency, that is likely to set as it cools. That is probably you have the hard balls in it. The only way to get rid of them is to either pick them out individually or blend the whole mix in a food processor.

Hello RuBe

Why should laddoos should be drenched in sugar syrup, I don't understand your question? This is how Besan laddoo should look.

Hi can I mix both besan and sugar together?? Actually the thing I already mixed besan and sugar together in a separate container what can I do out of it??please help

Is this raw, un-fried, besan that you have mixed sugar to? If yes, you can't really make burfi from it, which requires the besan to be fried. Otherwise, it will taste awful. The only thing that I can think of off the top of my head that you can use this 'raw' besan and sugar mix is a sweet besan pancake. Follow this recipe for Semolina & Wheat Flour Sweet Chilla Pancake;

If rawa is remained uncooked after binding ladoo then what to do?

Mamta, on 9/2/2018 02:28pm

Not much you can do once you have added sugar. May be you can break a couple of them, add water and try making halva with them?
