Happy Ugadi to everyone. Ugadi is celebrated in Karnataka and Andra Pradesh it the new year for us according to the lunar calendar.Usually during Ugadi abbatu or stuffed sweet lentil mixture pancakes are made and that’s the main dish or at least that is in my amma’s home.In-laws celebrate the new year according to solar calendar, so there is another New Year festival in few days.
Ok coming back to the recipe instead of making obbatu and sweating I decided to make something simple and easy. last year I made just 8 or 10 obbatu and by the time I could finish the fire alarm went off, because of the smoke ,sigh.So anyways I wanted to try vegan version of besan ladoo but something went wrong and I had to dump it one of my biggest kitchen disaster after a long time, so maybe that’s next time, so I decided to make the ladoo with ghee hmmm. You can try the other sweets from here. so let’s start making Besan ladoo.
