  • 1 cup gram flour/ besan/kadalai maavu
  • 3/4 cup + 1/4 cup ghee
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup water


  • Heat 1 teaspoon ghee in a thick pan. Add gram flour or besan and roast until nice aroma wafts out.
  • Sieve the roasted flour and mix with 3/4 cup ghee. Whisk without lumps and set aside.
  • Heat sugar and water together in a thick pan. I use cooker base for making sugar syrup. Heat in medium flame until one string consistency is reached.
  • Keep the flame low and add the gram flour mix.
  • Keep stirring and the mixture will begin to thicken. Add the remaining 1/4 cup ghee by parts at regular intervals.
  • At one stage, the ghee will separate and the whole mixture will become thick non sticky soft mass. This is the right stage to remove from flame.
  • Quickly pour into a very well greased plate or bowl. Shake and tap gently.
  • Let cool for 5 minutes.
  • Make slices with a sharp knife.
  • Set aside for 15 minutes before removing the slices.
  • Cool thoroughly and store airtight. Serve as snack or dessert.


1. Do not cook after the mixture turns into a soft mass.
