Laddu, or ladoo, are popular Indian treats often enjoyed during holidays and festivals, or just about any time there is an occasion to celebrate. They are round ball-shaped sweet snacks that are made with all kinds of ingredients.
A thin gram flour (besan) batter is poured through a perforated flat ladle or sieve (or boondi ladle!) over a hot skillet of oil. The batter droplets fall into the oil and quickly fry into crispy little balls, which are then added to hot sugar syrup. A variety of yummy seeds and seasonings are mixed with fragrant spices and the entire blend is shaped into the traditional round shape.
Bundi ladoo is one of the traditional mouthwatering desserts of Bihar. This delight has always been a specialty of the Bihari platter.
Each bite is a delightful blend of smooth, soft, and melt-in-the-mouth for a snack or dessert you can’t get enough of!
