If you have an sweet tooth or longing to make something quick for this #Ganeshchaturthi then you are not far anymore. Though i don't celebrate this festival but i always like to cook something special and get a feeling of festivity through my kitchen. Anyways for those who are seriously planning to cook and want an easy recipe, here's for you. I have never realised that making sweet can be so simple until i tried this one myself. It requires few ingredients and only 10-15 minutes of cooking and 5 minutes of cooling time and you are ready to take a bite. It made around 20 pieces for me. The no of pieces may vary depending on the size you cut and also on the size of tray you choose to spread the mixture, if the size of tray is large then you may get thin pieces or vice-versa.

Besan Barfi

All you need is:-

  1. Besan/ Bengal gram powder 1 cup
  2. Sugar 2 cups
  3. Ghee 5 tbsp
  4. Water 1 cup
  5. Dry fruits chopped 1/2 cup(coconut, almonds, cashew, sesame seeds)
First of all grease a large plate/tray with ghee or oil and keep it aside. This tray will be used for setting the barfi.
Take ghee in a pan or kadhai melt it and add besan in it. Fry the mixture till besan turns a little golden brown in colour and you can smell the nice aroma. While frying you may add the chopped dry fruits so that they also get little roasted. Turns off the stove and keep this besan mixture aside. In another pan take the sugar, add one cup of water to it and stir it continuously till all the sugar is melted and it reaches one thread consistency.
Once the sugar syrup has reached one thread consistency then turn off the stove and add the besan mixture which was kept and stir in continuously till all the ingredients are mixed well.
Then finally spread the mixture on a greased tray and let it set. When the mixture is set cut it into square or diamond shapes whatever you like and enjoy it!
