  1. how much water should i take to dissolve sugar.and wht should be the sugar syrup consistency before adding besan flour.

  2. Hi Madhu.Thanks for dropping by! Hope you liked our cooking blog. We used 1 cup of water for 1/2 cup of sugar. The sugar must have completely dissolved in the water.Drop a bit of the sugar syrup in the bowl of cold water. The syrup should instantly settle at the bottom and when moved with a finger should form a round lump inside the water. Hope this helps !
