Besan Laddoo (Microwave method)


Diwali was so fun this year. Days just went by so quickly. I had prepared this post half way through before Diwali but did not get around to posting it :/ Now that all the festivities and parties are over , its time to get back to blogging. Some time back, I had posted the recipe of Besan Laddoo (Recipe link here). Its my most favorite laddoo. I have heard from so many friends of mine that they shy away from making Besan Laddoo because its so time consuming. In the traditional method of preparation, you would need to roast the besan for a good 30-45 minutes. So this time around for Diwali , I tried making them using the Microwave method.
