Sesame Honey Rice Balls



Honey Rice Balls

Yesterday, I prepared Vegetable Fried Rice and had some left over white rice and chopped mixed vegetables. Decided to use the left over rice and veggies to prepare an Indo Chinese appetizer. Very easy and quick to bring together and makes for a great evening snack when your kids come home hungry after play. Interesting combination of flavors and textures. Nehal enjoys them with tomato ketchup.

    Hi Sailu

    I tried Besan Ladoo recipe yesterday
    since I do not like much sweet I used 1/2 cup sugar with 1/4 cup water

    Your recipe states 1 cup sugar to 1/4 cup water

    the mixture seemed a bit dry but the ladoos turned good when eaten immediately

    next day the turned stony and not firm and soft
    I followed the rest of the recipe to the T

    Should I have increased the water or something else

    besan ladoos are my favourite and I do not like shopmade ones. I really want to get this right & your help much appreciated

    thanks

    Love this idea, but would like to bake them rather than fry, and not use the flour for my gluten-free daughters. ok?
