Baked Besan Burfi With Oatmeal: Healthy Sweet

Looking for gluten free sweet recipe as a diwali gift? Or are you too fond of besan or chickpea gluten free flour like me. I know this makes absolutely delicious healthy sweets


besan  burfi with oatmeal


My hubby loves boondi laddoo but since we have stopped buying sweets, I decided to give it a try myself. I got inspiration from Poonam Bachhav's kalichee ladoo recipe, though I chose to bake the stuff instead of deep frying it. As a result, I was not able to make proper boondi. Nevertheless, I decided to use the same powder for another innovative recipe. Blended it with oatmeal to make baked besan oatmeal burfi, a mouth-watering end product from my experiment.

Baked besan burfi is a delicious, healthylicious, and simplicious way to dish out a delicacy which is widely popular in the country.

This is my innovation and I share the recipe with you all so you can enjoy it guilt free.


Is Chickpea flour Gluten-free?
Yes.

Does it contain minerals, vitamins, and fiber?
Gluten free chickpea flour boasts a good amount of fiber and iron.
Does it make a healthy sweet?
Absolutely yes - there are ways to make it even healthier. This chickpea flour sweet uses negligent amount of fat. On top of it, it is baked.

Importance or benefits of Oatmeal

I have talked in length about oat benefits already in several posts. Here's a recap:

Here's another traditional chickpea flour sweet recipe:
sugarless besan ladoo - chickpea flour gluten free ladoos








Ingredients
besan burfi baked

1 cup- besan (chickpea flour)
1/2 cup- oatmeal
1 tbsp- clarified butter (ghee)
1 tbsp- jaggery powder
1 tsp- cardamom powder
sugar- 2 tbsp (or more depending on your taste)
water to cover sugar and make syrup (we need water to knead soft dough as well)

Procedure
besan oatmeal burfi and besan laddoo



  1. Mix besan with jaggery powder and ghee.
  2. It will be like bread crumbs. You may add little more ghee if you want.
  3. Add water to make soft dough.
  4. Take a sevai machine. Pour the soft dough into it. We need the plate with big round holes or any other may also work.
  5. Take a baking tray and release sev over it. 
  6. Bake at 160 degrees for 15-20 mts.
  7. Take out and let them cool a bit and then grind coarsely. Mix with oatmeal.
  8. Meanwhile, take a pan. Add sugar, cardamom, and water to it.
  9. We need to make thick sugar syrup, though not too thick. 
  10. Pour the ground sev powder into the syrup.
  11. Switch on the flame. Heat on a low flame, mixing constantly.
  12. If the mixture feels dry, add 1 tsp of water to it and keep mixing until it becomes a mass and gathers in the middle of the utensil.
  13. Take out on a greased plate or aluminum foil or butter paper.
  14. Press with a heavy utensil for 1 hour.
  15. Cut into desired shapes. You may even add crushed nuts over the mixture and then press the dough.
  16. Enjoy this baked besan oatmeal fudge. My hubby, who does not like besan, loved this lip-smacking treat.

Homemade Edible Powders: Beetroot, Onion, Garlic, Ginger, Lemon, Orange, Sambar, Kurma, Garam Masala

The title says it all. This post is all about edible powders that can be used as flavoring agents, natural color, and to make food visually attractive. What more do we need? Though I am not too much in favor of drying food and storing the same, this is the best option for those days when these veggies are out of season. During the season, please make it a point to enjoy these fresh and flavorful. There's nothing better and healthier than fresh produce, right?

Okay so the idea to make these powders popped up in my mind as I had too many beetroots at home. When nobody was too eager to have them, the best way to still consume these beauties was to sundry them to powder. I did exactly that.





Then I wondered if I can sundry lemon peels into powder just like we do to orange peels. I have been using orange peels as a face pack thus far. But since the baking bug has bitten me badly, I plan to use it as an edible powder for cakes and cookies too. Fingers crossed for the results though, sin…

The Best Multigrain Digestives: An Airfryer Recipe

The best multigrain digestives? I know I have shared too many digestives recipes but this one is my best. To be frank, I experiment, relish, share, and post the same for you all and then forget all about it because it's time to experiment again with new ingredients. So today it was another kind of digestives - relished by one and all. My cookie making spree has turned my cookie hater hubby into someone who has started to munch on these baked beauties.



Before sharing the simple cookie recipe, it is time to go through oats benefits. You are already aware of my love for oats. One reason you rarely find my recipes without this fibrous cereal grain. Did you go through the fiber benefits?











Go to my fiber benefits post to get deeper insight into the need for including fiber in your diet.



Ingredients
1 cup- oat flour
3/4 cup- whole wheat
1/4 cup- bran
1/4cup- ragi
2 tbsp- roasted quinoa powdered (roasted quinoa adds a nutty flavor to the recipe - substitute with almond powder if you do not h…

Diabetic Diet Cake With Watermelon: A Vegan Recipe

While people are still debating whether watermelon is a diabetes-friendly fruit, I still stick to my notion that diabetics can have this fruit for its sheer hydration effect. Not only this, the fruit is loaded with minerals, nutrients, and antioxidants that make it a health-friendly food. However, diabetics with kidney issues should avoid watermelon. Anyway, let's come back to the watermelon cake recipe for diabetics. Well, this cake uses another fruit - banana- which even I do not think is diabetes-friendly. But I went ahead with including a banana for this recipe merely to keep the fat content low. I hope you all know that a banana is a good substitute for an egg for an eggless cake recipe.

Since an egg is also loaded with saturated fat, diabetics should avoid it at any cost. So I had to choose between an egg and a banana for this diabetes-friendly cake, and ended up voting for this humble fruit - which is one of my favorites too. Yes!

When you think of a vegan diabetes-friendl…
