Coconut Barfi with besan added!

Today we are going to see another sweet. That is coconut Barfi with besan. Here are the needed ingredients.

Grated coconut    2 cups

Besan (chana dhal ki atta) 3/4 cup fried in ghee.

Powdered cardamon one teaspoon

Cashewnuts  as per requirement fried in ghee approximately two tablespoons

Sugar approximately 3 cups

Water for making sugar syrup 1/2 cup

ghee     3/4 cup

Grease a plate with ghee and keep it aside. If required  use aluminium foil or  a parchment paper. Then heat a pan or thick bottom kadai. Pour two tablespoon ghee and fry the besan for one minute. Keep it aside. Let it cool. Now pour the half cup water and add the 3 cups sugar in the same vessel. Let it boil for some time. If the sugar is not clean add one ladle milk to remove the dirt from the sugar. It will come like black foam. Remove them and boil the sugar syrup till it becomes to two string consistency. Now add the besan and stir for sometime. Slowly add the ghee also. When it starts to thickens add the grated coconut and stir for some more minutes. The mixture will turn to bubbling. Continuously stir the mixture. Add the remaining ghee.  Now it begins to thicken and slowly the bubbles will reduce. Cook it till the bubbles vanish. Now add the cardamom powder and fried cashew nuts. Now the mixture will begin to leave the sides of the pan. Immediately remove the mixture from the fire and pour it to the already prepared pan and level it with a help of the ghee pasted plantain leaf or with a spatula dipped in ghee. Let it cool for 10 minutes and cut it to desired shapes when it is still hot. Let it cool down completely and store in an air tight jar.
