Besan (Gram Flour) Halwa

About this recipe: If you like the flavour of besan (chickpea flour) 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.

Serves: 8 

  • 250ml milk
  • 125ml water
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 180ml ghee (clarified butter)
  • 90g chickpea flour (besan)
  • 200g sugar

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

  1. Bring the milk and water to a simmer in a saucepan over medium-low heat; stir the cardamom into the mixture. Set aside.
  2. Melt the ghee in a shallow frying pan over medium heat; stir the chickpea flour into the melted ghee and cook until fragrant, about 10 minutes. Add the sugar and stir to incorporate. Slowly pour the milk mixture into the pan while stirring to avoid lumps. Continue cooking and stirring until the halwa pulls away from the sides of the pan, 10 to 15 minutes. Serve hot or spread the mixture into a rimmed plate and allow to cool. Cut into squares and serve.
