Besan ka halwa recipe | Easy to make instant besan ka halwa – Popular Punjabi sweet recipe. Besan ka halwa with full video and step-by-step pictures.

Traditional Indian sweet recipe, made in just 30 minutes, can be made for pujas and festivals at home. I have heard about this recipe through a friend long back but completely forgot about that. Recently, while I was browsing through some old books got to see this name again. I browsed through a few Youtube Videos and got an idea of it.

I tried this at home for my guests twice and everyone loved it very much. We are using Besan, ghee, sugar, and water as key ingredients for making this halwa. We are roasting the besan | gram flour in ghee in the first step. This enhances the taste of the halwa. So always use good quality ghee to make besan ka halwa.

You can make this for Navaratri, Friday poojas at home, and for guests too. Since it is done under 30 minutes, you can make this without any prior planning. We are adding sooji | rava to this recipe and that gives a nice grainy texture to the halwa.

This besan halwa tastes similar to Besan burfi | ghee mysore pak. The nutty aroma of the ghee roasted besan halwa also tastes similar to the wheat halwa. But the texture will be a little grainy. Traditionally slightly coarsely ground besan | gram flour is used in authentic Punjabi homes. Since we are using store-bought gram flour, we are adding rava to get that grainy texture.

Check out my moong dal halwa, chana dal ka halwa, gajar ka halwa, matar ka halwa potato halwa, and South Indian Kasi halwa, Godhumai halwa, and paal halwa.

Do try out this recipe at home, and let me know how it turned out.
