Walnuts-Besan Burfi

Walnuts Besan/Kadale Hittu/Channa flour Burfi is a sweet dish and you can have them at any time of the day. Walnuts are one of the healthy nuts and besan helps to bind the burfi. It is also one of the easiest burfi that you can prepare with in short time. It is simple and quick sweet.

Let us see the benefits of Walnuts in our diet.
Walnut trees have been serving the mankind since 7000 B.C. Two third of the world's walnut production is from California. Walnuts are very good for reduction of bad cholesterol in our body. It helps the metabolism and control diabetes. They have good anti oxidant and anti inflammatory properties. It is said that they are good mood busters.
As I said it is an easy recipe and can be done quickly. I prepared this sweet to take it for my sisters and in laws. Though I clicked pic after  I cut it and packed it inside the zip bag once it is cooled, I am not able to find those clicks. Will post some more pics later when I prepare this burfi again.
