The first and the only other time I tried making this delectable, ghee-laden dessert, this happened, and I was traumatized for a few years. But then, it became a little nagging voice that I couldn't take anymore, and decided to try it again. And I was glad I did, because now I know I can make it!
ps. Read a parody, written by a fellow blogger, and possibly my son, here.
- I would reduce the sugar a little bit, as it was a bit too sweet for me.
- The general ratio of besan:ghee:sugar according to my mom and my sister who are both experts in this 1:1.5:2, and that's what I followed.
- I am not why mine turned slightly darker in color as the taste is perfect. I think it may be due to the raw/unrefined sugar I used. My sister thinks I may have roasted the besan a bit too much. Either way, it didn't affect the taste.
Hope you try this, and have fun at it! This is a very quick recipe, and with the ghee already made, it took me less than 30 minutes.
