In a pan add ¼ cup of ghee and allow this to melt completely.
Add the Besan | gram flour and the sooji.
Sooji | Rava gives a nice texture to the besan halwa, so do not skip this.
Cook this in a medium flame.
Cook for 6-8 minutes . The besan will get nicely roasted and start getting light and fluffy.
You can smell the aroma of the besan | gram flour.
At this stage, simmer the flame and add the milk.
The mixture will loosen up a bit.
Now add the sugar or powdered jaggery. I tried both and both turned out pretty well.
Cook till the sugar melts.
Keep the flame low.
Now add ¾ cup of hot water.
Mix well and cook till the water gets completely absorbed.
Do not add more water, it will change the texture of the halwa.
Add the cardamom powder and sliced nuts.
If needed add 1 tbsp of ghee in the last and mix well.
Switch off the flame.
Instant besan ka halwa is ready.
