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.

Instant Aam Papad (Sada) With Jaggery: Sweet & Tangy Mango Slices

Aam papad has been a hot favorite since childhood. I do not remember how many times I have enjoyed these sweet & tangy mango sheets, though no one from my mom's side ever tried making them at home. After marriage, my mother in law, who is an awesome cook, made these savory & sweet mango pulp slices for me. I must tell that she makes the best mango pickle in the world - which is both sweet & sour. She made two buckets full for me after she found that I love aam achaar.

Who does not like sweet and tangy mango leather? Our generation has grown up relishing aam papad- wonder what all the present generation is missing out on! So this instant aam sada or papad recipe was born after my dear friend Poonam Bachhav had shared her aam papad post. Her post was the ultimate trigger for me to come up with my own instant Odia version. Poonam is the real Annapurna. I love the way she picks healthy ingredients to cook up deliciousness in the kitchen. Poonam blogs at Poonam Bachaav dot…
