  • Water – ¼ cup
  • Almond essence – ¼ teaspoon


How to –

Grease a pan/cake tin/plate with ghee and set aside.

Heat 1 tablespoons of ghee in heavy bottom pan and add the besan.  Dry roast till the raw smell is gone and make sure that the flour does not burn or brown. turn off the heat and sift the flour to ensure there is no lumps. Set aside.

In a pan, bring the water to boil and dissolve the sugar over low heat. Once the sugar has dissolved; continue to boil till you the sugar syrup reach a string consistency.
