Besan Peda

I tried Ramyas Besan peda which turned out soo good! I modified the measurements a bit, didnt add saffrons and thats y the color was light brown and at a quick glance looked to me like badushah - tats one of my fav sweets too :)

Ingredients:
Gram Flour (Besan flour) - 1 cup
Sugar - 1/4 cup
Butter - 1/2 tbsp
Milk - 1/2 cup
Cardamom - 1
Cashews - as required (optional)


Besan PedaMethod:
1.Heat butter, let it melt and roast besan flour in that till it becomes light brown.
2.Add sugar and cardamom powder. Pour milk and keep stirring for 5mins without any lumps.
3.Switch off the flame and allow it to cool for 10mins.
4.Roll them into small pedas, press cashews on top.

When refrigerated it will last upto a day.

    1. If the besan flour is over roasted may be it turns bitter I think....

    1. Grease ur hands with ghee then shape them into pedas to avoid sticking
