south african chana magaj recipe

by Food Like Amma, August 30, 2020
Chana Magaj (Besan burfi) is a gram flour fudge. It is sweet and crumby from the addition of ground almonds, milk powder and sugar, and fragrantly spiced with cardamom and nutmeg. It is commonly decorated with edible gold or silver foil and almonds. In my childhood, it was a famed Diwali treat. These days they have increasing popularity as a gluten-free sweet treat. Growing up, it was one of Amma‘s most dreaded Diwali sweets to make, it almost always flopped! Over the years, I have perfected this recipe, using ingredients at hand, but keeping the method of preparing the same. I am very pleased with the result and can safely say it is a flop proof chana magaj recipe.
