Besan Burfi (Chickpea Fudge)

A sweet and delicious indian dessert burfi made with besan and ghee. Besan burfi is a very popular mithai in north India just like mysore paak in south India. The only difference is the appearance and texture, though both of them have the same ingredients. Those who are calorie and weight conscious, this is not for them :-). But this has its own benefits. It is very good during winter months.


Besan (chickpea flour/gram flour) - 2 cups
Ghee (clarified butter) - 1 cups
Sugar - 3/4 (if you like it very sweet can add 1 cup)
Cardamom - 1 teaspoon
Milk - 1 tbsp
Ghee 1 tbsp

Few Raisin for gurnishing


1. Let's prepare besan flour first. Add 1 tb spoon milk and 1 tsp ghee in to   the besan flour.

2. Mix all together nicely and rub in between the palm to make sure there is no lumps remain. All you need is grainy texture.

3. Take a sieve with a big hole and rub the besan flour on the sieve with very little bit  pressure.

4. you will get very nice grainy texture flour.

5. Heat ghee on a pan and add besan flour in it.

6. Keep the heat on medium to low flame and stir continuous.

7. After 10-15 min of stirring you will see the ghee is coming out of the flour and your flour is very light and fluffy. That is the sign of you flour is done.

8. Switch off the heat and stir it gently to cool it down.

9. Now, add sugar in it. Make sure the mixture should not be very hot.
10. Add Cardamom powder to the mixture. and spread it into a greased plate.

11. Let it cool down and cut criss cross with a sharp knife to form diamond shape.

12. Serve & Njoy........
