Motichur Laddoo

Motichoor laddoo

Laddoos are my only major attraction in attending a ceremony. You see, I’m generally shy of novelties, socialising or crowd.  I’d rather stick around my comfort zone, doing the mundane things day after day and I’d not feel a thing. Best part is, last Rakshabandhan, I found a way out of this, too. We cornered how to make shop-like laddoos at home!  Believe me, make yourself a batch and you’ll never need to buy one. These homemade versions are definitely very easy to make, cost-effective and tasty.

  • Besan or chickpea flour: 2 cups
  • Water: as required
  • Sugar: 2 cups
  • Food color: 2 drops
  • Cardamom powder: 1/2 tsp
  • Ghee (clarified butter): 1 cup
  • Slivered almonds: a handful


  • Heat ghee or clarified butter in a shallow pan and let it heat. Mix the besan and water to make a thick batter. Pour the batter in a steel strainer and sieve droplets of batter in the hot ghee. Fry till golden and take out.
  • In another pan, mix sugar and water and bring it to boil.  When it reaches a thread-like consistency, add the cardamom powder, almonds, fried boondis and mix well. Let it cool a bit, but while still warm, shape them into small balls with the palm of your hands. Cool and serve!
