Recipe of Besan Katli of Besan Burfi for Diwali

This year has been really challenging for all of us, especially in the terms of celebrating our festivals as we have been doing for the past few years, we are not able to celebrate in a similar way.

Keeping the present scenario in mind, we can still celebrate it at our home with our families. And here, I have a recipe for you all to try on Deepavali.

I assure you this recipe will yield you a melt-in-the-mouth dessert that you and your family are going to love for sure.

Well, if you look at the recipe it is not very different from Besan laddoo, the difference lies in the shaping of these desserts.


  1. Gram flour (Besan) - 2 cups
  2. Ghee - 120 ml
  3. Cashew nuts - 1/2 cup
  4. Cardamom powder - 1 tsp
  5. Coarsely ground sugar - 1 cup
  6. Edible Silver Leaves (optional)
  7. Saffron Strands (optional)
Note: If you don't want to feel the coarsely ground sugar while eating, make the powder of sugar.

Making Steps:

  1. Heat a non-stick kadhai/pan and dry. Roast the besan until the raw smell goes off.
  2. Add the ghee to it and roast it.
  3. If you feel your mixture is too dry, add 1 tsp of ghee to it followed by cashews. Roast it well, but not more than 2 to 3 minutes.
  4. Transfer the mixture from the pan to a plate.
  5. Sprinkle the cardamom powder over it and let it cool.
  6. After the mixture has cooled down, give everything a mix.
  7. Start by adding a small amount of sugar at a time, grease your hands, and knead it into a dough by combining all the sugar.
  8. Take a square tray and let the dough flat with the help of a spatula.
  9. Lay the silver leaf over it and let it rest for some time and cut it into square or diamond shapes.
  10. And your Besan Katli or Barfi is ready to eat.
