Besan Ka Halwa is a traditional Indian dessert and made using different flour, lentils, nuts and vegetables. Besan Ka Halwa is one of my favorite Halwas.


1 cup coarse besan (ladoo ka besan, gram flour)
1/2 cup clarified butter (ghee)

1 cup sugar
1/4 tsp cardamom powder (ilachi)

2-1/2 cup water
2 Tbsp almonds (sliced)


* Boil the water with sugar, and cardamom powder in a sauce pan over low medium heat. Bring to a boil and Set aside.

* Melt the clarified butter in a frying pan on low medium heat. Add besan and roast to golden brown color; stirring constantly this will take about 5 to 8 minutes. Besan will be golden brown in color and will have a light sweet aroma.

* Add the syrup slowly, as you add the syrup to besan water will splatter.

* Turn down the heat to low and let it cook for about 2-3 minutes.

* Besan will absorb the water, as the Halwa cools so keep Halwa a little softer then you like.

* Garnish with cashews.
