Tips for perfect besan Peda:

  • The key to make perfect besan peda is to roast the chickpea flour or besan on low flame by stirring constantly and wait for the result.
  • I have melted the ghee and then measured it in a cup, so please don’t get confused.
  • You can shape it into a ladoo as well.
  • Always let the best mixture cool down before adding sugar, if you add the sugar in the hot besan mixture the sugar will melt and it will create problem in creating peda or ladoo.
  • Store it in an airtight container at room temperature for 7 to 12 days.

FAQs

How can I fix besan ladoo/peda?

If the besan mixture is not manageable and you are unable to bind it into shape then dry roast the chickpea flour or besan and then add it to besan mixture and mix it gently.

Please don’t rush while dry roasting the besan otherwise you will get raw taste of flour in peda. You can dry roast the besan according to the consistency of you besan mixture.

And you will get the desired consistency and you can then shape it as well.

Why does besan ladoo taste bitter?

You need to use good quality besan to avoid bitter taste, you can use fine or coarse flour too.

And secondly to avoid bitter and raw taste roast the Besan nicely, I don’t know how many time I repeated this thing 😅 but roasting is a crucial part of this recipe.

“Patience is bitter but it’s fruit is sweet”

Is besan better than wheat?

Besan is gluten free, it helps in weight loss, and it has good fats and protein.

You can use besan to prepare boondi, Savory pancakes, cakes or nankhatai.
