Directions

1. Melt the ghee over a medium flame, in a thick-bottomed pan.
2. Add the besan and brown till you get a cooked aroma from it. The besan will also turn darker as it cooks and when done should be a deep golden brown color. This browning process can take up roughly 20 minutes.
3. Add the cardamom and mix well.
4. Turn off the fire and mix in the powdered sugar. Stir well.
5. Allow the mix to cool.
6. When cool, form into golf ball-sized rounds. Place on a lightly greased, flat tray till they set well.
7. Store in an air-tight container in a cool place.
