Besan vanilla bites

This is a recipe, which i was inspired by saffron hut.Well just a week before we had lots of jalebi's in our house.Normally me and my hubby dont like sweets so much.But we both love jalebi's a lot. Those chrunchy,sweet juicy jalebi's are my altime favorite.So we ate up all of them and got eddicted to sweets.So i wanted to prepare some easy recipe which had very little fat in it.So thought of preparing this dish out of besan which i has a lot stocked up in my pantry.Believe me friends i must confess it came out that good that i just melts within no minute in your mouth .hmm...nothing much but cant help saying kya kare control nahi here i'm sharing this recipe with you all.

Besan[chick peas powder]- 1 cup
Sugar - 1 cup
Cardammon - 1/2 tsp
Milk - 2 tbsp
butter - 3 tsp
almonds - 6 sliced finely
Vanilla extract - 1 tsp

1.Take a heavy bottom pan and melt the butter.
2.Then roast the besan powder under very low heat till all the raw smell goes off and it turns to bright golden colour.
3.Now add sugar and mix properly then add milk and continue to saute.
4.Just when the mixture starts to bubble up add 1 tsp of vanilla extractand cardammon
5.Remove it from the fire just when the mixture starts leaving the edges and forms a single mass when the pan is kept slant.6.At this point remove it and pour into a tray which must be greased with butter.Allow it to cool fully and then cut it into small squares.This can be preserved for atleast a month but believe me you will finish it before that.

Hi Soumya ,
Is 1 tbsp of milk enough to form a paste for besan .Or does the sugar melts sufficiently to form the paste
