The sight of a motichoor ladoo mountain which we often see during festivals and weddings is one of the most mouth-watering sweet I have ever had. Looking at the saffron coloured spheres you will never be able to guess what it is made with and how simple its recipe is. Besan, milk, sugar, ghee, dry fruits (optional) and you are ready with the ingredients.
