      Expert Tips

      1. Make sure not to heat the besan and ghee on high as this would burn the besan and form knots.
      2. You'll know the besan is done once it starts to get really aromatic and the colour slightly darkens.
      3. Do not add the sugar when the besan is warm as this would melt the sugar.
