Besan Burfi /Besan Vadi

 I love Besan laddoo!! It was my favorite Diwali treat since I was a small kid!! I have made besan laddoos, before..and this Diwali I wanted to try out different recipes.So, I thought why not start the "Diwali Faral" by making this "Besan Burfi"/ "Mysore pak"

I found this very nice recipe with step by step pictures on "Sharmis Passions":

1)Mine did not come out as 'yellow' as hers, but that may be the difference in the 'Besan' that she and me used.
2) The only difference I did was, to add crushed Pistachio on top of the Burfi to give a festive look!

3)And yes....I probably saved a 1/4 cup of ghee :0( They needed so much of ghee...my hand could just pour out that much lol!!!)  ...that is why there were some tiny cracks on top of the vadis.

4) But all in all..the recipe is  keeper...and a good start to Diwali Faral!!
