A classic sweet dish made with bengal gram flour and ghee.


  • Bengal gram flour (Besan) – 1 cup

  • Sugar – 2 cups

  • Ghee – 2 cups

  • Water – ½ cup


  • Sieve the besan flour. Add 2 tablespoons of ghee in a kadai and fry the besan till nice aroma comes and slightly it’s colour changes. Remove and keep aside.
  • In a heavy bottomed kadai (Wok) and add sugar and water.
  • In another kadai (wok) pour the ghee and heat it. Stir sugar and water and make a syrup of one string  consistency.
  • When the sugar syrup reaches one string consistency, sprinkle the besan little by little stirring continuously.
  • When you add all the besan, start pouring one ladle of hot ghee (heating from the next kadai) and stir well. Then again pour one ladle of hot ghee and stir well and repeat this procedure till the ghee separates and the mixture leaves the sides of the kadai and look like froth.
  • Pour quickly into the greased plate and spread the mixture gently. Let it cool for a few minutes. Cut it into pieces with a sharp greased knife.
