Motichur ladoo/ Mothi laddu

Motichur ladoo/ Mothi laddu

Traditional Diwali sweet made from chickpea flour droplets and soaked in sugar syrup. Perfect thing ever for an After Dinner Bite-Sized sweet!

Before you guys ask, I am going to tell you I did not use much colour, I used a pinch of orange color( actually not even a pinch), thatsy it is bright orange. I believe color is not important Its the taste. Right? I wanted to gift these to few friends so did not want to feed them with unhelathy orange color so that is the reason for this color. Ladoos refers to anything round and sweet and we make a lot of ladoos. I already have some on my blog like carrot coconut ladoo, rava ladoo, coconut ladoo  and there are so many more.  These ladoos are quick and delicious. Whenever someone goes to India, I ask them to buy motichur ladoo I love them! So this time I wanted to make it myself for Diwali. This time I made few snacks like kamarkat/coconut jaggery balls, motichoor ladoo, ring murukku, ragi oats murukku and mini mint murukku. Nice, right?. This ladoo is made with besan flour (Tiny drops of chickpea flour are deep fried) and dipped in sugar syrup to make round balls. They are made as boondi (round shaped droplets) first and then dropped in sugar syrup, blended and then made into round balls. The normal boondi ladoo are made using water instead this moitichoor ladoo is made using milk. And Boondi ladoo , the size of the boondi is large and in moti choor it is very tiny. I did not have the perfect ladle with the tiny perforated one, so I used normal ones but pulsed a bit. I have made some tips to make these ladoos perfect.
