Besan Pista Barfi | Gluten Free Gram flour Pistachio Fudge

Jump to Recipe || Print Recipe

Besan Pista Barfi is a melt in mouth kind, super delicious and very easy to make barfi made with gram flour and pistachios.

This besan pista barfi is gluten free and tastes so amazing that you won’t stop eating few. When it comes to making barfi aka Indian style fudge, I am very bad. Sometimes the barfi won’t set or other times it would become very hard. It is the one and only reason I seldom try making the barfis at home.

This barfi recipe is adapted from Cook with Manali’s space and came out perfect. The only thing I did this time was, I waited patiently enough to get the perfect consistency of the sugar syrup and bingo it worked.

Here are some more barfi recipes from my space.

A melt in mouth kind of super delicious and very easy barfi made with gram flour and pistachios.

Course: Dessert
Cuisine: Indian
Author: Sapana Behl
  • 2 cups besan/gram flour/chickpea flour
  • 1/2 cup ghee/clarified butter
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon cardamom powder
  • 1/2 cup pistachios, chopped
  1. Grease a square baking tray or a round plate with ghee and set aside.

  2. Heat a heavy bottom pan and add the ghee and flour in it. Start roasting the flour on low to medium heat.

  3. Keep stirring the flour and roast until it starts changing slightly golden in colour.

  4. Meanwhile, in a saucepan add water and sugar and bring it to boil. Let it cook for 10-15 minutes or until a two strand thread consistency is reached.

  5. Once the flour is roasted add cardamom powder and half of the pistachios in it. Stir and add the sugar syrup to the flour mixture, keeping the flame low.

  6. Cook for 2-3 minutes more and then transfer the mixture into the prepared tray. Level with the back of a spoon and sprinkle more pistachios on top.

  7. Cut into desired shape and size. Store in airtight containers.

Recipe Notes
Make sure to get the accurate consistency of the sugar syrup. Try to roast the besan on low heat to avoid burning.
