  6. On the sides, take another pan and make sugar syrup by melting sugar and water.
  7. When the besan is at room temperature, add sugar syrup to it on medium heat.
  8. Stir until it's mixed properly.
  9. Transfer it to your pan lined with parchment paper and sprinkle pistachios on top.
  10. After leaving it for an hour, you can cut the barfi and enjoy it with your friends and family.
Important Note: The besan must be roasted properly. Otherwise, it gives a raw taste. So, make sure you roast it for 25 to 30 minutes.
