  • Add 2 tbsp ghee and add Chickpea flour and roast until golden brown(keep the flame on low to medium)
  • Keep stirring for at least 10 mins. Make sure it does not stick or burn. If you burn it, you will have a slightly bitter taste.

  • Mix and stir again for a few mins till you have a nice aroma
  • Turn the heat off and remove it from the stovetop
  • Add the jaggery powder, and mix well

  • Take small amounts and roll them in your hands, the ghee in the ladoos/bites will help bind them
