Sweets for Diwali : Microwave Besan Laddu

I love Besan Laddus and it is also my daughter's favorite sweet. With very little time on hand as mentioned in my previous post decided to make another quick-fix sweet in the microwave.

1cup besan (chickpea flour)
1/4 cup ghee
3/4 cup sugar
3-4 pods of cardamom

Powder the sugar and cardamom in the mixer to form a fine powder. In the microwave safe dish, mix the ghee and besan thoroughly. Microwave on high for about 7-8 minutes stirringl every other minute. Check this mixture to ensure that there is no raw besan smell and it is well roasted. Allow it to cool completely.  Add the powdered sugar and cardamom, mix well and form small round balls. Decorate as required.
