Besan Fudge : Celebrating Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to everyone. Along with the mother's day I wanted to celebrate my Amma's birthday which was last week, by making her recipe that she is very proud of. My Amma is not too fond of cooking compared to her sisters. It is not that Amma does not know how to cook, its just something she was not interested in. But, she does have a few tricks up her sleeve.  Mysore pak is her favorite sweet and she always makes this cheat version of it. She is very proud of this recipe because it got her sisters approval which was very important to her. She wanted to share this recipe with me and I loved it. The fudge was not gooey, but was firm and soft. It tasted awesome hot off the stove and took me less than 15 minutes to prepare.


Heavy Bottom Pan
Measuring Cups and Spoons

Makes 8 Pieces
Besan - 1/2 cup
Sugar - 1/2 cup
Ghee - 3 tbsp plus 1 tsp
Milk -  1/4 cup
Cashew nuts - 10 ( optional)
Cardamom - 3 pods powdered
Saffron- a pinch


1. Heat the pan with 2 tbsp ghee on a little over medium heat. Add besan and roast it until the raw smell disappears. ( about 4 minutes).

2. Add milk, sugar and 1 tbsp of ghee and mix well. Keep mixing until you get the mixture to leave the sides of the pan and form a ball. Add 1 tsp of ghee, add cardamom, chopped cashew nut pieces and remove from heat.

3. Allow it to rest for a few minutes. Make small ball ( approximately 1tbps) and flatten with your palm and shape to form a square. ( At this point I used the curly knife and cut the edges to make it look pretty, you can skip that step.)

4. Store them in a air tight container. They will not harden but will have a chewy and soft texture.
