Besan Barfi/Vadi


2 1/2 cups besan
1 cup ghee
2 cups sugar
1 cup water
2 tablespoons rose water
pinch of saffron strands
1/2 teaspoon cardamom powder
1/2 cup chopped almonds


In a karahi add the ghee and fry the besan on a medium low flame till it becomes aromatic be careful not to burn the besan - this is a slow and time consuming process, but well worth it. Once done, get it off the flame and let it cool.
In a sauce pan, add the sugar, rose water and water and bring it to a boil. Boil this mixture till you get a 1 string consistency. check this either with your fingers of with a spatula. To this add the saffron strands and the cardamom powder and mix well. Now add the besan and ghee mixture and mix well so that no lumps are formed.
Take a greased cookie tray and add this mixture to it to form an even layer. Top with chopped almonds and let it cool down completely before you cut it into barfi squares.
