Without puttting too much of an effort and time, I could get the best end result. The baked besan ladoo with jaggery can give a good competition to its traditional counterpart. What's more, I have tried to make the chickpea laddu more nutritious with the addition of nuts and seeds. So what I have got is amazingly delicious chickpea balls that take me back in time.
