Besan is a blended form of chana dal which is widely used in India since it is not only a rich source of protein and highly nutritious but also easy to digest!!
It is useful in making many vegetarian & non-vegetarian food items as well as deserts.
Today’s special is Besan ki Barfi……
Besan 1 cup
Milk 1 cup

Sugar 1 cup or according to taste
Cashew 10-15 pieces chopped
Kismis (raisins) 8-10
Almonds 5-6 small pieces cut width wise
Chhoti Elaichi (cardamom) 5-6 pieces crushed
In a mixing bowl add besan, sugar, cashew, kismis, almonds and chhoti elaichi
Mix well and add milk
Whisk it properly so that it turns into a smooth paste
