Instant Besan Laddoos

With Raksha Bandhan just around the corner, this is a good time to share this easy laddoo recipe that the sisters can whip up for their loving brothers on the festive day. I don’t have a brother of my own but my army of cousin brothers have never made me feel left out on Raksha bandhan. It is a day I love to cook for them and feed them and pamper them in everyway I can. Along with an elaborate lunch spread , this instant besan laddoo recipe would come very handy I suppose. The traditional method of making these gramflour laddoos can get quite tedious but not anymore. This microwave recipe will take just about 10 mins and just a few basic ingredients. I am always a bit apprehensive in trying out shortcut methods but have to admit that sometimes such time saving recipes are a saviour.
