  • Gram flour (besan)
    3/4 cups
  • Pure ghee
    2 1/2 cups
  • Sugar
    4 cups


Step 1

Break lumps and sieve gram flour twice. Preheat the pure ghee and keep it hot. Grease a tray.

Step 2

Cook sugar with half a litre of water on medium heat, stirring continuously till it dissolves. Increase heat and bring syrup to a boil.

Step 3

Cook without stirring for about five minutes or till it reaches single thread consistency.

Step 4

Add half a cup of hot pure ghee to the syrup and stir, add gram flour gradually stirring all the while to prevent any lump formation.

Step 5

Keep on stirring continuously till the mixture starts bubbling. Add the hot ghee, half a cup at a time. Every time you add the ghee it should sizzle and froth up.

Step 6

Continue this process till all the ghee is used up and you get a pleasant sweet and a roasted gram flour aroma. Pour this on the greased tray.

Step 7

Cool a little and cut into desired shape.

Chef Tip

We recommend using of pure ghee but it can be substituted with vanaspati. Store in an airtight container to retain the freshness and crispness. With the above measurements you can make around forty to forty five barfis.
