shakti's picture
Gram flour roasted and made into sweet balls. Make ahead, will keep for a month or two.
Ingredients
  Besan 500 Gram (Gram Flour)
  Ghee 250 Gram (Clarified Butter)
  Sugar 400 Gram (Or To Taste)
Directions

Ina heavy bottom pan warm the ghee a little bit. Add the besan and mix well.
Roast the mixture on medium heat till the color changes and the aroma fills you.
The trick is to keep the flame to a medium and keep moving the mixture.The besan will become a dark yellow or maybe mustard color.The ghee will start to seperate.
Turn the flame of and let the besan cool.
Once the mixture feels like it can be touched, add the sugar. Now you need to rub the sugar and the besan well together.
The mixture should look smooth and even.You can add any dry fruits at this stage.
Form balls and store in airtight containers.

I want to make this. It would be so helpful if the measurements were in cups or teaspoons instead of grams

about 4-1.5 cups gram flour, 2 cups sugar, 1 cup butter (ghee). I think this would with some added cinnamon- maybe roll in cinnamon sugar ?
