Thokudu Laddu | Bandaru Laddu | Besan Laddu

Bandaru Laddu or Thokudu Laddu was orginated from a place in Andhra Pradesh "Machilipatnam". Machilipatnam is also called "Bandar". I would be very happy to mention that it was my birth place too. This ladoo is a little different from the besan ladoo, still the ingredients are same. 

Source: Mom
1 Cup besan (Makes around 10 laddu's)
1 Cup sugar
2 Tsp elachi powder
Cashew for dressing
Oil for deep frying

1. Make besan to a fine paste.
2. Take a Wide pan and heat enough oil to fry the besan balls.

3. I used my grating plate to prepare balls.

4. Fry them till they turn Yellow.

7. Grind it to a nice powder along with sugar and Elachi.

8. Heat a pan with low heat and add the besan mixture to it.
9. Slowly the sugar will become thick to form a laddu.Switch off heat. 
10. Now take little melted butter and make the mixture to nice laddu.

The mixture might be very hot so handle with care.
