Besan Halwa

About this recipe: If you like the flavour of Besan in sweets, you will love this halwa. I often make this halwa instead of Besan ladoo or Mysore Pak. My kids gobble it up even before it has a chance to cool down.

Susmita Washington, United States

Serves: 4 

  • 1 cup besan
  • 3/4 cup ghee
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cardamom
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup water (approximately)

Prep:5min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:35min 

  1. Heat water and milk in a pan. Stir in cardamom powder. Set aside.
  2. Heat ghee in a shallow frying pan. Add besan and roast in the ghee for 10 minutes, or until it smells nutty and fragrant.
  3. Add the sugar and stir. Pour in the milk mixture gradually. Keep stirring to avoid lumps. Add water as needed. Cook the mixture for 10 – 15 minutes, stirring frequently till the halwa pulls away from the sides of the pan.
  4. Serve hot, or spread the mixture into a rimmed plate and allow to cool. Cut into squares and serve.
