well many who are familiar with besan barfi, would argue that this recipe is exactly like the barfi with a different shape to it. technically it is not a barfi, but from a colour and taste perspective, i would agree with it. basically, it made with a mixture of milk powder and chickpea flour which gives it a soft and moist texture to the peda. whereas in the barfi recipe, sugar syrup is prepared and the besan flour (milk powder optional) is added directly to it. sugar syrup gives the required barfi semi-solid texture and hence technically both the recipes are different. in other words, besan milk powder peda is one of the easy and simple besan sweets prepared ever. no sugar syrup, just mix the sugar to besan and milk powder and your peda is ready in no time.

furthermore, i would also like to add some additional tips, suggestions and variants to the besan peda recipe. firstly, besan is the key ingredient for this recipe. it has to be fresh, smooth and i have used besan powder used for laddu which easily gets mixed and also can be easily shaped. secondly, in the place of milk powder, you may also use khoya/mawa or a combination of both to make it even more creamy. yet, do not forget the ratio of each ingredient and try to follow the same proportion. lastly, depending upon the moisture level in the final besan mixture, you may have to freeze it accordingly in the refrigerator. basically, if you feel it soft extend the freezing time.
