Siru ma Laddu/Besan Laddu

I was very eager to prepare a sweet in our new microwave oven. So when I turned the book which was given with the Oven,I saw this simple recipe and decided it to try. Because this same laddoo will take more than 5 hours to prepare in my Mom's place.of course that day we didn't have microwave. Moving the gas stove to a more spacious hall and starting the work and all .... It will be a memorable experience for every diwali ..(only for diwali my mom,grand mom,grand father and all will be doing it..). So I prepared this laddoo and it had the same taste as my mom prepared.

Besan flour-1 cup
sugar powdered - 3/4 cup
ghee-1/3 cup
Elaichi powder -1/4 tsp

In a microwave safe bowl, add the flour and ghee and mix well.Microwave on HIGH for 3 minutes,stirring after every one minute.Reduce the power to 70% and microwave for another minute stirring once after 30 seconds.Remove and let the mixture cool completely.Add the cardomom powder and sugar and mix well. Shape into laddoos.
