Besan unde is one of my favorite Indian sweet. The nutty flavor of roasted besan flour combined with sugar and nuts all brought together with some rich ghee. What’s not to like right? And making it is as simple as I have described it. It is a very popular sweet made during festivals.This sweet in our house is made every year for Krishnashtami. It is easy and quick all thanks to my momma’s super simple recipe. Read on to find out more and as always Happy Cooking!
Heat a thick bottomed pan, add a little bit of ghee. Add cashews and raisins and let it brown. Remove the nuts and raisins onto another plate.
Into the same pan with the left over ghee add besan flour and saute on low-medium heat. Slowly cook this till you get the aroma of the roasted besan. The color will also start to change from yellow to a light golden brown ( don't over do this or it will burn)
To this roasted besan add the powdered sugar
Add in the nuts and raisins. Mix it well
Mix in the ghee little by little. Keep stirring on low flame.
Once everything is mixed well, remove it onto the greased plate. Allow it cool completely before you start making lemon size balls out of it.
