Recipe by Chantal Perez
"A delicious Indian sweet, commonly gifted during celebrations like Diwali. I got this recipe from my neighbor when I lived in India. She always brought me sweets that she made herself."

chickpea flour (besan)
clarified butter (ghee)
white sugar, or to taste
finely chopped pistachio nuts
finely chopped cashews
Very easy to make! Great taste! Thanks for the recipe!
Really simple recipe with great results. I modified it a bit though, for my own tastes. Instead of cashews and pistachios, I used walnuts and pistachios - and even added about 2 teaspoons of powdered cinnamon. Instead of besan flour, I used a gluten-free blend of millet and sorghum flour, and a bit of of standard white flour. I would estimate it was about 2.5 cups and .5 cups respectively.
Make sure to use the coarser grade of chickpea flour for an authentic texture. Also, I omitted the nuts due to allergies, and added 1 TBSP ground cardamom for flavor.

Pile it into a tomato half, load it into a wrap, or spread it on bread. Chicken salad does it all.
Broccoli salad makes a great side dish or a light main dish on a warm night.
