This rich sweet dish is popular in the regions of Mysore. This is prepared using Clarified Butter/Ghee and Gram Flour.
Time Required: 20 Minutes
1 Cup Kadale Hittu/Besan/Gram Flour
2 Cups Sugar
2 Cups Ghee/Clarified Butter
1 Cup Water
Heat a Kadai and add Kadale hittu and dry-roast for a minute on low flame and keep it aside. Heat 1 cup of water in a thick bottomed pan/vessel and add Sugar. Stir until Sugar dissolves. Now, add half a cup of Ghee and stir for 2 to 3 minutes on low flame.
Add the roasted kadale hittu to the Sugar syrup and stir continuously ensuring that there are no lumps formed. Keep adding the rest of the Ghee until bubbles start forming on the surface and the mixture becomes light and starts to come out of the sides easily.
Pour this mixture on a greased tray. Cut into desired shapes.
Because of the heat the color of the pieces will become golden brown at the bottom and light yellow in the top. When it cools down store in air tight containers.
