1.  Method:

2.  Sieve the gram flour once to loosen it a bit.

3.  Add 4 tbsp warm milk to this flour and mix thoroughly with hand so that milk is coated entirely on the flour.

4.  Now sieve this mixture again so that ladoo will have nice texture.

5.  In a skillet, add ghee. When the ghee is hot add the flour and fry it on low flame. This should take roughly 15 to 20 mins. The best way to check if your flour is fried or not, is by the aroma it starts giving when it is perfectly fried and color turns golden. Do not burn it else ladoos will taste bitter.

6.  When the flour is done, turn off the gas. Add sugar and cardamom powder to it. Mix well with a wooden spoon.

7.  Leave it aside for 5-7 mins.

8.  When it is still warm, mould the ladoos with hand and top each one with dry fruits.

9.  Enjoy this yummy sweet :)

Cooks' note:

If you want more ghee flavor in the ladoo then add another 2-4 tbsp ghee while moulding the ladoo.
Level of Sugar in the mixture can be increased or decreased as per your taste.

Enjoy Eating!! :)
