Festival of lights, sparkles and firecrackers…Deepavali is right round the corner. This is the time when we are all feverishly busy cleaning our homes, buying gifts, and new clothes to wear for puja, attending cards–parties and carnivals. There is a sense of cheer, happiness and mind boggling traffic. But most important of all, there is some serious feasting happening everywhere you go! And that’s the part I get most excited about. I love making my own mithai, and this besan burfi or fudge just happens to my favourite! Also the easiest!!
Sweet, fudgy, gooey, this burfi makes regular appearance in our house in winters. Between my parents, husband and me, we have that many adaptations of this dessert!! Jam packed with dry fruits, mixed with semolina or coconut, light coloured, dark one ( like mine) , cut in squares or rolled into laddoos, each one’s better than the others, or so we’d like to believe!
So while we all continue to battle over this awesome fudge, here’s my version…a simple 4 ingredient recipe, which I hope you’ll enjoy as much as we do.
Wish you all a very happy and peaceful Diwali!
