Besan almond Khadi

Besan Khadi with almonds (6)




Something my “mamama” ie my maternal grandmother makes atleast once a month even to date.I love these simple yet tasty sweet one can make .


Chana pita khadi

  1. 1 Cup Besan/Gram flour.
  2. 1 cup Ghee/clarified butter
  3. 1 glass milk
  4. 1 3/4 glass sugar
  5. 1/4 cup almond crumbs
  6. Thin baking tray/plate with edge.
  7. Butter sheet/wax paper.


  1. In a thick bottomed saute pan mildly heat ghee.
  2. To this add Besan ,mix and fry for up to 2 mts.(At this stage it will be  liquid-ish  and a slight brown tinge to the original flour color).
  3. Take this off the heat/burner .place down and add the sugar and mix well.
  4. On low to medium low heat place the wok again,mix well for 10 secs,add the milk and almonds whilst stirring.
  5. Now on low medium heat keep sitrring the mixture,at first it will be very liquidish and will be frothing/bubbling.
  6. After about 10mts the number of bubbles will reduce and there will be few larger bubbles.
  7. Keep sitrring  on low heat,so that you do not burn the bottom of ur pan.
  8. After about 10mts from the above pt,the bubbles would have reduced to 10% from the original and the mixture will be of the consistency of chewey caramel chocolate.(at this pt you can test it by place a small drop on a will start solidifying ,still a little chewy but harder).
  9. At this pt take it out of the stove,in a thin baking pan lined with butter paper.Pour the mix immediately and spread it.
  10. PS: spread may be a little tricky as it needs to be done immediately as it gets cooler it gets harder.the key to this is to use a bowl smeared with some ghee on this flat side and use it to flatten /evenly spread the mixture.
  11. Let it cool for 2 mts,when its hot u need to place the incision,since it tends to get brittle and crumples when cooler and cutting becomes messier.
  12. I used the pizza cutter to make vertical and horizontal incision so I can get even pieces.
  13. Let it cool completely before peeling it off the butter sheet.
