Learn how to make a delicious and sweet besan burfi with this easy recipe. With simple ingredients like besan flour, milk powder, sugar, and ghee, you can create a delectable treat.


  • Besan flour – 2 cups

  • Milk Powder – 1 cup

  • Sugar – 3 cups

  • Ghee – 1/2 cup

  • Cardamom Powder – 1 teaspoon

  • Chopped Nuts for garnishing


  • In a kadai, melt two tablespoons of ghee over medium heat. Add the besan flour and sauté until it’s warm to the touch. Remove the kadai from the heat, add the milk powder to the besan, mix well, and set aside.
  • In the same kadai, pour 3/4 cup of water and add the sugar. Place the kadai over medium heat and bring the mixture to a boil.
  • Once it starts boiling, reduce the heat to low and carefully add the besan-milk powder mixture, stirring continuously to avoid lumps.
  • Maintain the heat at medium and continue stirring until the mixture becomes semi-solid. At this point, add the remaining ghee and mix until well incorporated.
  • Add cardamom powder and give it one final stir for even flavor distribution.
  • Transfer the mixture to a greased plate and evenly sprinkle chopped nuts over the top.
  • Allow it to cool slightly, but while still warm, cut it into your desired shapes.
