Sweet chickpea pearl truffles

It is really hard to resist the temptation once you taste these truffles.This recipe calls for 4 to 5 hours resting time after it is made. Mine didn't even last for 1 hour.

This dessert can be stored in an air-tight container for 4 to 5 days.

Sometimes I use other flavours like rose essence or edible camphor (which makes it super tasty) instead of cloves. Whatever the flavour, my family is now addicted to homemade truffles.

Preparation Time: 50 minutes
Cooking Time: 40 minutes
Makes: 20 truffles

1/4 cup sliced pistachios
3 cardamom
3-4 cloves
Oil or ghee for frying

For pearl batter
1 cup coarse chickpea flour
3/4 cup water
1/4 tsp ghee
A pinch of turmeric powder (for colour)

For sugar syrup
180g sugar
90 ml water
2 tbsp ghee
2 drops of lemon juice
A pinch of turmeric powder (for colour)

Mix together the chickpea flour, ghee and turmeric powder in a bowl. Add water little by little to make a thick batter. Keep a little water aside. Cover and let the batter rest for 15 minutes.

Then add the remaining water to make a watery batter. Add more water if required, it depends on the quality of the chickpea flour.

Heat oil in a pan on high flame. Take a perforated ladle with many small holes or a colander with small holes. Hold it 1 to 1.5-inches above the hot oil.

Add a ladle full of batter to the colander. Then suddenly tap the colander so that batter will fall as droplets into the hot oil. Take care not to burn your hands.

After all the batter from the colander is dropped into the hot oil, strain the pearl droplets from the hot oil into a bowl.

Continue making pearls with the remaining batter. After all the pearls are made, let it sit for 15 minutes.

Powder the cardamom and cloves together.
