Besan burfi is a traditional Indian sweet made with basic ingredients like besan(gram flour), sugar, and ghee. It melts in the mouth, delicious and perfect for festival time.

Sweets are part of Indian festival celebrations. I always prepared different types of sweets and burfi during festival time. Besan burfi is one of my favorite burfi recipes that is loved by my all family members.

It is a simple burfi recipe made with roasted gram flour with ghee on low flame, when gram flour turns aromatic and changes its color to a golden brown then add sugar and cardamom powder for flavor. Initially, it is like besan fudge but after cooling at room temperature cut into pieces. Delicious, smooth, and melt-in-mouth besan burfi is loved by everyone.
