On the 2 nd day of BM #9 am here with yummy sweet called Magaj. Its noting but besan burfi.
Very simple and delicious. Made this for the first time and it turned out very good.

We need:

Besan 2 cups
Sugar 1cup
Khoya/ ricotta cheese 1/2 cup
Pistachios 10
Almond 10
Green cardamom powder 2sps
Ghee 1cup


Mix besan with 1/2 of the ghee.
Keep aside for 20 mits.
Sift it through a sieve.
In a kadhai warm rest of ghee and add flour and fry till golden brown stirring continously.
Add Khoya or ricotta cheese set on low flame and mix well
Make sugar syrup of 1/3 consistancy add this to fried flour and mix well.
Now add almond and pista mix well.
When its warm add sugar syrup mix well and pour the mixture on greased flat plate or tray.
When warm cut them to a square or diamond shaped pieces and set aside to cool.
That's it besan burfi or magaj are ready.
