Microwaveable Besan Barfi Gram Flour Sweet
If you remember my previous post about the Besan Barfi, then you know how much I’ve loved this sweet ever since I was a kid. But nowadays, everyone is so busy trying to balance their personal and professional lives that we hardly get time to cook leisurely, let alone spend half-an-hour making a dessert! So when I came up with this, I fully embraced my inner lazy self and cut down the ‘cooking’ time by 2/3! And plus, standing on top of a stove-top in this blazing weather really isn’t my thing either so it’s the best of both worlds!

Granted the result of this microwaveable besan barfi and the original besan barfi are exactly the same, the time is the BIGGEST difference! And in this day and age, who doesn’t like to be more efficient! 🙂

NOTE: The microwave time may slightly vary depending on your microwave's heat therefore, when cooking the gram flour (besan) in the microwave, please keep an eye on the color and smell of the gram flour (besan). The cooked gram flour (besan) should be light brown.

NOTE: You have to constantly take out the mixture, stir and place it back into the microwave to ensure that all of the gram flour gets cooked and doesn't get burned. DO NOT cook all of the mixture at once in the microwave or else it'll get burned.
