DSC_1496_edited-1

Happy Holi to all of you !! RainbowSmile


           On this beautiful colors of festival, I wanted to make some quick but delicious dessert. I thought of Besan burfi for today’s occasion. Besan burfi is one of the traditional sweet served in festivals and marriages in India. Besan Burfi is a sweet and tasty dessert made with Besan and Ghee. Main ingredient of every sweet is ghee across all part of India. These are quite similar to Besan ladoo and Besan Halwa in taste.
