Step 1: Making Besan Pearls Mix besan with water to form a smooth, thick batter. Use a ladle or perforated spoon to drop small pearls of batter into hot ghee. Fry until they turn golden brown. Drain excess oil and set aside.

Step 2: Preparing Sugar Syrup In a separate pan, combine sugar and water to create a syrup. Bring it to a boil, stirring until it reaches a one-string consistency. Add cardamom powder.

Step 3: Coating Besan Pearls Combine the fried besan pearls with the sugar syrup, ensuring each pearl is coated. Allow it to rest for a few minutes.

Step 4: Shaping Laddus When the mixture is warm enough to handle, take small portions and shape them into round laddus. If desired, garnish with chopped nuts.

Step 5: Allowing to Set Let the Motichoor Laddus cool and set for a few hours. They will firm up as they cool.

Step 6: Serving Once set, serve these delightful laddus at room temperature. They are ready to add sweetness to your celebrations.
