Besan ka Halwa

The weather is very pleasant here, cold breeze is blowing throughout the day. Best time of the year in the middle east, and holiday time for us. My family demanded to eat something sweet so i made this halwa.... tastes too good.... melts in the mouth... yum..

Ingredients required :

Besan (Gramflour) : 1 Cup

Ghee ( Clarified butter) : 1/2 Cup + 1 tblsp

Milk : 1 Cup

Water : 3/4 Cup

Sugar : 3/4 Cup to 1 Cup ( depending on your taste buds)

Cardamom powder : 2 Pinches

Cashewnuts : To garnish

Can add some raisins also.. but my little one is not fond of them so i didn't add them.


In a heavy bottomed kadhai put the ghee and let it heat. Once the ghee is hot add the milk and allow the milk to curdle.. can add a spoon of vinegar to fasten the process... but don't add much else the halwa will be sour. After the milk curdles add the besan and roast till the raw smell goes and the besan turns slight golden brown in colour. Add the cashewnuts now and mix in. Add the sugar and the water and cook till the mixture thickens and takes the consistency of halwa , add the cardamom powder and switch off the gas.

My little one couldn't wait till I clicked some pictures :)
