Besan Laddu

Laddoo's were not something that I was not comfortable in making. When I made this laddoo last week and it came out fine I was happy and confident. RC had commented that she liked Churmundo next to  Besan laddoo and that she had tried making it in Microwave. I had tasted Besan laddoo once that too it was fron Bikano and it had lots of nuts,cashews etc but home made never. So hopped on to RC's blog to check on her recipe for laddoo. She had referred to Tee's recipe for making laddoo's. Until yesterday I used my Microwave only to reheat food or boil milk or to keep dosa batter to ferment. This was an easier option compared to making the laddoo on stove top.. I made this laddoo as nivedyam for yesterday's Chathurthi Pooja at home and it came out tasty. Thanks Tee for the wonderful recipe and RC for pointing me towards it.
P.S: I could not roll it into ball so added less than a tbsp of milk and it worked wonders :)
