1. In a heavy bottom wok heat ghee. Once the ghee is heated add the besan/gram flour and roast it on medium flame till the colour of the besan/gram flour becomes light brown and will become very aromatic. Add the cardamon powder while roasting the besan/gram flour. Be careful not to burn the besan/gram flour you have to constantly stir it. If trying for first time keep the flame on low.

2. Mix the kesar strands in lukewarm milk. Once the besan is roasted add the lukewarm milk and kesar strands mixture and mix it well turn off the gas and let the besan/gram flour cool down completely. After completely cooled down add the powdered sugar and finely chopped dry fruits in it. Mix it well and make small ladoos out of the mixture. Be careful that add the powdered sugar only after the besan has completely cooled down.
