    Hi Raji,

    Very delicious sweet. I was wondering if the sweet is soft after cooling or hard and crumbly like mysore pak. Thanks

    That looks very good. I like the fact that there’s not much ghee in this recipe.

    @jyothi thx, i did check the vidoes blog. vl add it to my foodblog list
    @asha yummy
    @sapna its basically soft. it doesnt get relatively any harder than the time you switch off the heat.
    @coffee thx šŸ™‚
    @suganya badam and cashews gives another dimension reducing the besan smell and taste.
    @lavanya thx…. šŸ™‚

    Hi Anu,
    This is my first time trying this sweet and It did not come out good:

    It was sticky though I put it on flame after adding sugar for a considerable amount of time (Till the mixture solidified)
    It did not come out into pieces and was sticking to the butter paper.

    Your sweet image looks so tempting, but I was nowhere near that kind of image with my trial.
    Please tell me where I did wrong. I followed your recipe exactly.
