|Besan barfi has a strange aftertaste on the tongue|
I made besan Barfi today and even though it seemed to have roasted fully , it has a strange after taste that you can feel on the tip of your tongue. Not sure if it's under cooked or is it because I added the sugar while it was still hot.
I am not sure what may cause a strange taste. Difficult to say without looking or tasting it.
Old besan that may have gone off
|slight bitter after taste|
I made it 2 times n it has a slight bitter after taste dunno why plzz help
It has never been bitter whenever I have made it. This is a pretty basic recipe. Only thing I can think of is that besan was cooked on too high heat and got burnt.
|My laddoo is too soft now|
Just made the laddoo.
My laddoo is soft not sure what went wrong. Will they harden if I wait? Is there any remedy nnow to harden them?
yes, the laddoos are a bit soft when freshly made. They should become firmer as they cool, unless you live in a very hot place :).
Try keeping them in the fridge for a bit.
You didn't add too much ghee by any chance, did you?
|Besan Rava laddu mixture became hard|
I roasted rava, besan in ghee and added sugar syrup to their mixture. But the mixture became hard and coarse. Cannot make laddus out of it. What should I do now? I cannot add more sugar syrup as the mixture tastes perfectly sweet right now. Should I roast it with ghee and try again? Also, there are small hard balls in the mixture which tastes very sweet. I think it is probably because of the sugar syrup that hardened after cooling. How can I get rid of these hard pieces? Will the heating with ghee help?
|laddoos made perfect but not drenched in syryp|
my laddoo taste and the way it had been molded is perfect, but its not drenched in syrup. can i add anything at this tage or should i leave as is?
I make laddos by adding ground/caster sugar to the friued besan, not syrup. I don't know anyone who makes them with syrup.
If your syrup is thick, 2-3 wire/thread consistency, that is likely to set as it cools. That is probably you have the hard balls in it. The only way to get rid of them is to either pick them out individually or blend the whole mix in a food processor.
Why should laddoos should be drenched in sugar syrup, I don't understand your question? This is how Besan laddoo should look.
