    Charishma_Ramchandani's Note:

    I'm going to make this for my family because they should celebrate their visas and not be depressed like me. They have reason to celebrate and have been wanting to eat this sweet since sometime, so I will just cook this one up for 'em. We watched Chef Rakesh Sethi make this on Mirch Masala, a very popular cooking(recipe) serial on Star Plus, yesterday at 11:30am. The number of servings is a guesstimate.

      These are extremely rich and should be treated as fudge. I used ghee but I'm not sure if it was desi ghee, however it didn't seem to affect the recipe. The gram flour adds an interesting flavour. I used chopped walnuts because that's all I had at the time and it was still wonderful and helps cut the richness a little.
