I absolutely love magas and thought of experimenting with flours to make farali magas, as I had in the larder some leftover amaranth and water chestnut flour with best before date was almost gone, I really wanted to use the flour up, and oh boy, the result was splendid.

What can I say about this experiment, I am so glad I took that risk by wasting time and money. Farali magas actually tasted as delicious as it looks. With the results, I got so happy that quickly I adorned these beauties with almond and pistachio slivers and edible dried rose petals, the contrast of garnishing, and the taste and texture of the magas turned out darn delicious, delectable and simply satisfying that I had to put them in the frame.

What is Farali Rajgiro Magas?

Farali Rajgiro Magas ( Gluten gree Amaranth Fudge) is a sweet dish that is enjoyed during the fasting period. It is made with only four ingredients. Magas or Magaz is an authentic Gujarati, gluten-free sweet dish that is mainly made during Diwali and prepared with coarse chickpea flour, ghee and sugar and topped with nuts. So, this farali rajgiro magas is a variation of the authentic Magas recipe.

Ingredients For Farali Rajgiro Magas?

Farali Rajgiro Magas is prepared with amaranth flour also known as Rajgiro or Rajgaro, and is commonly used in fasting recipes such as Panchratna Rajgiro Siro, Buff Vada or Farali Lauki Muthia. I have also added water chestnut flour ( Singoda No lot ) so the magas sets properly and lends smooth and silky texture. Now that the main ingredients are out of the way you'll need only ghee and powdered sugar (not icing sugar), cardamom powder and some sliced nuts and dried rose petals for decorations, which is optional. To prepare magas, powdered sugar is essential, as in this recipe sugar is added in the end, and you want sugar to be dissolved just in the hot magas mixture.

How To Make Farali Rajgiro Magas?

For Farali Rajgiro Magas recipe, you don't need any preparation. It is an easy and straightforward recipe that can be done in no time, just that it takes little longer to set so I would advise you to make on a previous day.   First heat ghee in a heavy bottom pan, or non-stick pan, add amaranth and water chestnut flour and roast it on a very low heat. For the quantity of my recipe, it will not take more than 8-10 minutes. Once it roasts into brown colour but not burnt, turn off the heat, then add powdered sugar and cardamom. Mix well, do not worry at this stage as the mixture will go runny. Pour the runny mixture into the greased tray or thali. Leave it aside in a cool environment (Not refrigerator)  for at least 6-7 hours. Halfway through sprinkle nuts slivers. Once it set, you'll see a very thin film on it, that's the set ghee. cut magas into the desired shape and garnish the magas with rose petals.

For How Long Farali Rajgiro Magas Will Stay Fresh?

Without any worry, this magas will stay fresh up to 4 days at room temperature.

How To Serve Farali Rajgiro Magas?

Farali rajgiro Magas is perfect on its own, you can have it after a spicy Indian meal. farali meal or even serve as a prasad and a gift for those who are on a gluten-free diet.
