Besan Burfi

Besan is flour made from ground chickpeas. It is also known as chickpea flour, garbanzo flour or gram flour. It can be used for halwa, chilla, laddu or burfi and many more dishes. Today I made these mouthwatering burfi with this flour.

Besan - 1 cup
Ghee - 1/3 cup
Mawa - 3/4 cup
Sugar - 1 1/2 cup
Water 3/4 cup
Cardamom powder - 1/2 tsp


  • Roast besan nicely in ghee on a medium flame.
  • Keep a greased tray ready.
  • Grate the mawa to make sure that there is no lump.
  • Add mawa and cardamom powder to the flour and mix well. There should not be any lump in this paste. Keep the heat low for some time
  •  Make sugar syrup with water and sugar. For this burfi we need 1 string consistency sugar syrup. 
  • Mix sugar syrup to the flour and mawa paste and mix well.
  • When it will start leaving the side, transfer it to greased tray.
  • When it is still warm cut it into pieces .
  • You can decorate it with nuts.

Chutney Toastie for Blog Hop Wednesday

This is another week of Blog Hop Wednesday and this time I'm  paired with Vaishali Sabnani of  Ribbon's to Pasta. She has a nice space and very good collection of recipes. I've chosen chutney Toastie which came out as a  very delicious recipe. This is very quick and simple to make and yummy to eat.


Bread ( I've used multi grain bread)
Green chutney
For Masala Water
Water - 1/8 cup
Chilli powder
Dhaniya jeera powder
Amchur powder

Apply butter on both the slices. Now apply green chutney. Make a sandwich. Toast the bread on hot griddle. Pour masala water first on the edges and then in the center. Drizzle oil on top and flip over. Pour masala water on the other side and drizzle oil. Now time to flip again. Make sure all the water is absorbed.
Ready to serve.
