What is motichoor ladoo?
Motichoor ladoo is a classic Indian sweet made from small, deep-fried balls of besan or gram flour, which are then soaked in a sugar syrup. “moti” means pearl, and “chur” means crushed, so “motichur” translates “crushed pearls”.

Sprinkle toppings immediately, otherwise they won’t stick.
If you want to make bite-sized truffles, crumble the laddus and roll into desired sized balls before chilling.
