Kaliche Ladoo is a traditional Maharashtrian delicacy. It is basically a gram flour ( besan) sweet ball preparation and it tastes somewhat like the boondi laddoo. This is my mother in law’s signature dish which she passed on to me with great love. Hence these recipe is close to my heart. These ladoos stay well at room temperature for about 10- 15 days , provided they do not vanish until then 😉
These delicious and melt in mouth ladoos can be made at home with an easy to follow recipe. Here instead of making boondi , Sev is made from the besan flour and the sev is then crushed and the coarse powder thus obtained is mixed with sugar syrup. The crushed sev appear as small curves ( kali in colloquial language) and hence the name of the Ladoos. If you do not have a snacks maker to make sev, we can even make pooris out of the besan dough and then crush the deep fried pooris and follow the rest of the recipe.
