Happy Deepavali Everyone. We wish this Diwali would bring a world of joy, happiness and
contentment to you, to last all your life through. Have a safe and sound Diwali. We usually do Lakshmi pooja on Diwali and offer some homemade special diwali sweets as prasad to Lakshmi devi. Here's one such Besan Burfi that's loaded with almonds, kaju, ghee, milk and sugar.

Ingredients Needed:
  • Scraped coconut - 1 cup
  • Gram Flour / Besan / Senaga Pindi - 1 cup
  • Milk - 1 cup
  • Ghee( Clarified butter ) - 1 cup
  • Sugar - 2 - 2 1/2 cups
  • Fistful almonds soaked overnight and peeled
  • Fistful cashewnuts soaked in milk for 10 mins

  • Scrape fresh coconut and grease a flat plate or thali.
  • In a blender, grind soaked badam and cashew nuts to a smooth paste and keep aside
  • In a big mixing bowl place coconut, sugar, besan( gram flour ) and milk. Alternatively you can mix everything in blender and keep aside.
  • In a thick pan on medium heat, add ghee and after 30 sec, pour in the mixture and keep stirring continuously until it becomes thick.
  • Once the mixture begins to leave the side, transfer onto the greased plate and spread immediately and press either kaju or almonds as required.
  • Once cooled, cut them into desired squares/diamonds and remove them from the plate carefully.
  • When they are completely cooled, store them in an air tight container. These should stay good for up to a week or so!

Mom made these once as this is very quick and easy compared to Mysore Pak. And moreover this will be ready in minutes unlike other sweets. Anyone with a sweet tooth couldn't stand eating just one! Yes its that good! Mine are not as smooth, so you should spread them smooth once you pour it onto the greased plate!

P.S. Everyone has unique taste palette, so please adjust the ingredients according to your taste.
