More funk from the vaults of Nori

Tune: Get It Together (Part 1) by James Brown from I Can't Stand Myself When You Touch Me




Nori, Me and Jimmy Wu 2000 Flying Saucer, SF




Besan Ladoo
2 cups besan [chick pea flour]
1 cup ghee
3/4 cup sugar
2 Tablespoons cardamom

toast the chick pea flour in a large saute pan over low heat, stirring constantly until it is toasted to a golden color and smells nutty. Add the sugar and ghee and continue to stir and cook over low heat for 10 minutes. Mix in the cardamom and spread onto a pan to cool. Allow to cool to warm temperature [not hot, not cool] and roll into little balls. Garnish with silver foil or nuts. Reminds me of my mom's energy balls made from peanut butter and powdered sugar back in 1984 when Afrika Bambaataa and James Brown put out the Unity record.
