Besan Halwa Recipe

Besan halwa recipe


  • 1 cup besan
  • 3/4 cup ghee
  • 1 cup grated jaggery (gur)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cardamom
  • 1 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tsp poppy seeds (khaskhas)
  • 1/2 cup dried coconut powder

Besan Halwa Recipe

  • Take a heavy based pan and add poppy seeds (khaskhas), grated coconut powder and grated jaggery(gur).
  • Keep the flame slow as the coconut powder has a tendency to burn quickly.
  • Cook it for around 5 minutes till all three ingredients are mixed well. Turn off the gas and keep it aside.
  • Heat milk in a pan. Stir in cardamom powder. Set aside.
  • Now take another pan and add ghee to it.
  • Add besan and roast it for around 8 minutes till you get the sweet aroma of roasted besan.
