Some guilt free sweetness to beat your mid week blues!

This easy to make
BESAN BARFI avoids all your usual dessert suspects – white sugar and dairy (milk and ghee) and yet manages to be delicious and healthy!

Here goes:-

2 cups besan flour
5 tbsp date paste (adjust sweetener as per your taste to add more)
1/2 cup thick coconut milk
pinch of nutmeg and cardamon
slivered pista and almonds to garnish


Dry roast the besan on a thick bottom pan. Make sure it is well roasted (it will take 15+ min).

Set aside to cool. Now, add all the remaining ingredients and mix well to a smooth dough. Check and adjust sweetness. Flatten the dough with a rolling pin into 1/2 inch thickness.
Place a butter/parchment paper in a dish and place the besan dough in it. Freeze for 2-4 hours.

Remove it from the dish, cut into shapes of your choice. Garnish with almonds/pistachios and serve.

Refrigerate the remaining. It stays in the fridge for upto a week (although it is so yummy, it will not last that long).
