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.
