How much salt? Same amount as you would add of sugar? If that is the case, then it is too much and you have to throw it away.

If you have added normal amount of salt, make Besan Chilla with some vegetable grated and added to the batter, to reduce the salt, or make Kadhi or besan Gattae.

All recipe are on this website, you can also find a few on WWW.

Just a tip if your laddoos are undercooked. Bake them in an oven at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. It worked perfectly for me.

Great idea DT.

My besan ladoo are little jiggely. Matlab not retaining the shape. Taste wise they r good but shape seems to become flat in some time.

I added sugar while besan was hot. Now how to make it right. Perfect round shape?

Did you put too much ghee perhaps?

WE HAVE PREPARED BESAN CHAKKI AND ALSO ADDED SUGAR AFTER THAT WE HAVE TEST THE CHAKKI THE BESAN IS RAW WHAT WILL DO TO AGAIN FRY BESAN.

ALSO PLZ NOTE SUGAR ALREADY ADDED.

Why would you add sugar to Besan before making sure that it is properly roasted?

I don't think you can roast it after adding sugar, it will burn/become chewy as sugar melts when you fry it. Put it down to a learning experience, you will never make this mistake again :) . We have all made mistakes, you are not alone !

Better luck next time!

May be someone else here has a bright suggestion?

My besan is quite dark after frying it in ghee, haven’t added the sugar yet as im waiting for it to cool but im worried its burnt.. is there anything i can do now to fix it?

Mamta, on 21/8/2021 07:43pm

Hello Aahan

Once something is burnt, there is not much you can do to remedy it. Taste it and see if smells/tastes burn. If the answer is yes, throw it in the bin and start again, frying it on low heat, not in a very hot pan.

Hi Di, I tried the besan barfi recipe. Everything turned out good. Taste, consistency etc.

But i got some sand particle like gritty sensation in my mouth while eating. Not completely. Few particles here n there. I don't understand what is causing it. Please help.

Mamta, on 6/9/2021 04:03pm

Hello Mini

I can't imagine anything except

Mamta, on 6/9/2021 04:07pm

Hello Mini

I can't imagine anything except some sort of sand or dirt giving that sort of gritty sensation. Somehow your Besan/ghee/sugar got contaminated with sand/dirt. I can't imagine how though, as everything comes nicely packed these days.

There is no way (that I know) you can remove it.

Sorry, unable to help.

I have made the besan ladoo ...it has put too much water can u please help it out how to fix this

Hello Rani

Why would you put water in Besan laddoos? I have never heard of anyone doing that. What you have probably got is Besan Halva. Serve it in small plates and enjoy it as it is.

Hi I made besan lassos today but when I was binding it and tasted, I found that besan isn’t cooked properly. Can anyone advise me what to do now?

Mamta, on 26/11/2021 08:11pm

Dear Dipti

It is surprising how many people get tired of frying/roasting the Besan + Ghee and add sugar too soon. Unfortunately, if you fry it after adding sugar, sugar will melt and burn.

What I will say is that put it down to experience, learn from this and make better ones next time. Read the steps of frying Besan carefully.

Best wishes.
