Besan barfi has a strange aftertaste on the tongue

I made besan Barfi today and even though it seemed to have roasted fully , it has a strange after taste that you can feel on the tip of your tongue. Not sure if it's under cooked or is it because I added the sugar while it was still hot.

Hello Niki

I am not sure what may cause a strange taste. Difficult to say without looking or tasting it.

Possible reasons;

Uder-fried besan

Burnt/overfied besan

Old besan that may have gone off

slight bitter after taste

I made it 2 times n it has a slight bitter after taste dunno why plzz help

It has never been bitter whenever I have made it. This is a pretty basic recipe. Only thing I can think of is that besan was cooked on too high heat and got burnt.

My laddoo is too soft now

Hi Marta,

Just made the laddoo.

My laddoo is soft not sure what went wrong. Will they harden if I wait? Is there any remedy nnow to harden them?

Hello Sahiti

yes, the laddoos are a bit soft when freshly made. They should become firmer as they cool, unless you live in a very hot place :).

Try keeping them in the fridge for a bit.

You didn't add too much ghee by any chance, did you?
