1- add the ghee and let it melt on low heat in a heavy bottom pan.

2- Once the ghee melts, add the sifted gram flour to the pan. Heat should be consistently low during the stir.

3- Mix the gram flour and the ghee. When you do so, it will start forming lumps.

4- Don’t worry about the lumps and keep stirring; it will start to loosen up a bit.

5 & 6- Keep stirring continuously on low heat. Besan will continue to loosen up, and after around 15 minutes, it will turn into a smooth paste-like consistency.

7- Roast the gram flour for around 25 minutes on low heat until it had a beautiful golden colour. At this point, you will get a rich aroma.

8- Remove pan from heat. And later, transfer it to another vessel for cooling it down.

9- Later, when the besan is cooled down, you can add a few nuts to enrich the taste.

10- Mix the cooked gram flour with nuts and required sugar powder to get a smooth besan dough.

11- Start preparing round shape balls from the prepared dough.
