BESAN BADAM CAKE

I tried this in the same pattern of 7 cups cake, but with a slight difference.

INGREDIENTS:

Gram flour(Besan flour) - 1 cup
Coconut scraped - 1 cup
Badam powder - 1 cup
(I used MTR Badam feast powder)
Ghee - 1 cup
Milk - 1 cup
Sugar - 2 cups

METHOD:

(MTR Badam feast contains sugar and so, I have measured only 2 cups of regular sugar).

Mix all the ingredients(except ghee) without any lumps. Pour in quarter portion of ghee and mix well.

Heat a heavy bottomed- pan, and pour in the mixture.

Stir for about 15 minutes, in a medium heat. Now pour in the remaining ghee and stir continuously.

There will be bubbles all over.

The mixture will become frothy, leaving the sides and when the whole mixture comes together, like a ball, switch off the flame and immediately transfer it to a greased plate.

Slightly press with a spatula to get a uniform surface.

Put horizontal and vertical lines using the spatula.

Allow it to cool completely and then take out the pieces. Your BESAN BADAM CAKE is ready.

I got 20- 25 medium sized pieces from this measurement.

THE MICROWAVE OVEN VERSION:

I did not note down the timings, but have clicked the step by step procedure. Have a look at it. It approximately took 20-25 minutes in microwave high. I took it out and stirred in between.
