Burfi is a type of Indian fudge, often eaten during Diwali. Just like its western counterpart, burfi can come in many different forms. This one, called besan burfi, is a melange of nuts, sugar and chickpea flour. Chickpea flour may seem like a peculiar addition to fudge, but it is quite a common component in Indian desserts, and comes with a nice hit of protein as a bonus!
Makes 9 big or 16 small squares.
NOTE: You can make a vanilla version of this fudge by using ½ teaspoon vanilla extract instead of the ground cardamom.
