Besan Burfi (North Indian)


Gram flour - 200 gm
Powdered Sugar - 200 gm
Ghee - 100 gm
Cardamom - 8 (seeds crushed)

Almonds - 10 (Silvered)
Pistatios - 10 (Silvered or chopped)

Note :Flour- If bubbles has formed in the flour cuz of air exposure , simply powder it in grider . The flour should be of powder form to make burfi .
Sugar - You can even add 2 sp less than 200 gm.

Heat Ghee in a nonstick pan in medium flame .
Add Gram flour to this. Mix well . Roast the besan until the raw smell goes & the raw bitter taste of besan vanishes.
At this point add the sugar & crushed cardamom .Mix everything well. Set aside the pan. Add 1 sp or 2 sp of water to make it more flexible to make shape.(careful to add very less, since we dont want to make bars & not besan Halwa)
Transfer the content to a squared tray.
Pour the cut almonds & pistatios on top.
Apply pressure on top & sides to make it square shape.
Cut lines using a knife.
Allow to cool completely. Serve in dish decorated with nuts or almonds.
