  • roasting or besan (gram flour )is a key point to make perfect ladoo. Roast besan on low flame till it slightly changes its color and becomes aromatic. Do not roast besan on high flame otherwise, it will burn and be bitter in taste.
  • Cool down roasted besan mixture at room temperature then add sugar and roll ladoo. Do not add sugar when the besan mixture is slightly hot.
  • Lastly, Store magas na ladoo in an airtight container for 15 days at room temperature or 1 month in the refrigerator.
