  1. This was the best ladoooooooooo I have ever eaten.soooooooooooooooooooo gooooooood and yummyyyyy. Thankyou charishma. You are the best.....If you guys haven't tried it please try it, you won't be sorry....
  2. I tried this recipe today. The amount of ghee listed as 1/2 cup to 2 cups gram flour did not come close to being able to form balls. I added another 1/4 cup. My husband's reaction was "Did you add coarse salt to this because I am biting into grits.?" No, of course not, it was the granuated sugar. I agree with Heather's review that if anyone tries this recipe to use powered sugar. I cannot say I will try this again.
  3. This is the same as my recipe only I use 1 cup of powdered sugar to be sure there are no gritty granules.
  4. I halved this recipe and make 11 small laddoos. It was excellent and just as I remember it. Thanks, Charishma!
  5. This came out so well and I was very surprised because I am a novice in making any kind of sweets leave alone ladoos. We do not have much of a sweet tooth in the family, so we do not really make many except for the occasional kheer on festival days. I tried this because it seemed so easy. And it was, the proportions were all perfect and so was the method. I halved the recipe and it made 5 ladoos. I think the trick is how to catch the ladoos, to make the balls while it is hot. And mine came out in all shapes except round :( very sadly but then this is the first time. I guess one does need experience to do it and also you should be able to stand the heat on your hands while making the ladoos. Is there any particular method or trick to it, I don't know. Hopefully, I will have better shaped ladoos next time. Thanks for the recipe, Char.
