Happy Ganesh Chaturthi to all my readers! While it’s not yet time to pack the winter clothes here in Sydney, I can smell Spring in the air. The days are getting warmer and the flowers are in full bloom everywhere. The most awaited season of the year is here!I particularly look forward to Spring in Sydney, as it not only brings lovely long sunny days but it also marks the beginning of festivities and celebrations that continue until year-end. Starting with Krishna Janmashtami and Ganesh Chaurthi, there is a festival every couple of weeks until Diwali followed by my little one’s b’day, Christmas and then New Year. With so many occasions to celebrate, it is also a very busy time for me but I love the festivities and, of course, the awesome food.
Besan ke laddu is a rich traditional sweet that is not only very easy to make but also tastes delicious. My Mum makes a batch every few weeks as my Dad loves eating these laddus every night after dinner. He warms them slightly in the microwave before eating that makes them taste even better.
I make these laddus only once a year on the occasion of Ganesh Chaturthi, when I bring my Ganpati home, to welcome the Lord with His favourite food. Are Laddus your favorite too? Read more
