This recipe calls for a syrup that is single thread consistency. This is a measure for syrup consistency that does not require a candy thermometer. Single thread consistency is achieved when you take a small amount of syrup between your thumb and forefinger and gently pull apart (remove with a wooden spoon and let cool for a couple of seconds to avoid burning yourself!). If one thread of syrup forms and does not break apart as you separate your fingers you have single thread consistency.

1 cup besan (chickpea flour)
1-1/2 cups sugar
2 cups ghee
1-3/4 cups water


  1. Prepare syrup by combining the sugar and water and heating over medium heat to single thread consistency (see introduction).
  2. Sift the chickpea flour then add to syrup one tablespoons at a time.
  3. Reduce heat to low and add 2 teaspoons of ghee to the mixture, stirring until well blended.
  4. Repeat until all the flour is added, or until ghee is no longer absorbed.
  5. Transfer the mixture to a greased shallow dish and spread evenly. Press down gently with a spatula to bring ghee to surface (but do not remove).
  6. Set aside to cool (about 10 minutes).
  7. Cut into squares or triangles and serve.

I love all breads Indian style roti, chaptai, naan! I used to make my own all the time but honestly now they are carried at my grocery store not expensive at all so it's just as easy to buy.
