A Besan Sooji Barfi for a Celebration

The celebration of my 200th post seems to coincide with a popular Ranbir Kapoor movie "Barfi"!! This besan sooji barfi will definitely take you to a new high. It is also one of my favorite sweets my mom used to make for me from childhood.

This barfi has a unique chrunchy texture and melts in your mouth effortlessly.I am dedicating the celebration of my 200th post to my mom. Here is the recipe she taught me ...

Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup besan/chickpea flour
  • 1 cup sooji/semolina
  • 1/2 cup grated coconut(fresh or frozen)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup ghee/clarified butter
  • pinch of cooking soda
  • 2 crushed cardomon
Procedure
Add a tsp ghee to a plate and spread on the plate completely and keep aside.
Fry coconut,besan,sooji each seperately with a tbsp of ghee and then mix all together and keep aside.

To prepare the syrup take a heavy deep bottom pan dissolve the sugar in 1/2 cup water and boil till it has a one thread consistency.

Now add the fried flour mixture prepared earlier to the syrup and begin to stir it well.
Then add ghee slowly spoon by spoon and continue stiring,when adding the last spoon of ghee add the cooking soda and crushed cardomaon and continue stiring.

Once the mixture starts to seperate from the pan bottom stop the process immediately .Spread it in the ghee coated plate equally, immediately cut to desired shape, and let it cool.

Once it cools you can remove it piece by piece and store it.
Note:
  • It is very crucial the mixture should not overcook, once it begins to seperate from pan immediately remove from flame otherwise it will crumble to tiny lumps.
  •  Adding soda makes it melt faster when you have a bite.
  •  To spread the mixture in the plate equally while pouring,tap the plate it continously for mixture to settle equally.
  •  It is important to cut the shapes after you pour it into the plate immediately as it wouldnt be possible once it cools.
