Besan Barfi

2 cups besan [chickpea flour, garbanzo flour]
1 cup sugar 
1/2 cup water 
1 cup ghee 
almonds (blanched and sliced) - to decorate
Fry the besan in ghee on low flame for about 30 minutes 
till it turns brown in colour and the ghee separates. 
Dissolve the sugar into the water over low heat. 
When it dissolves, bring to a boil and cook till thick enough
- take some between your fingers and pull apart, two threads should form. 
Add this syrup to the besan and mix well. 
Pour this mixture into a greased tray. 
When it cools cut into cubes and garnish with the almonds.
