Badam Besan Ka Halwa - Almond and Chickpea flour Pudding


Badam Besan Ka Halwa is a rich and delicious Indian Sweet, which is perfect for any celebrations or occasions. It is prepared with ground almonds, chick pea flour, khoya, sugar and milk and garnished with rich nuts, saffron and edible gold leaf. It's a real soul satisfying treat!

Let me warn you this Badam Besan Ka Halwa is sinful, but you don't want to commit a sin by not eating it too! My Badam Besan Ka Halwa is rich and divine but is surprisingly easy to make.  It is enriched with nutty ground almonds, Mawa, aromatic spices and a generous amount of desi ghee. In result, this halwa turned out so delicious, fluffy, velvety and melt in your mouth. This is a real treat for any festivals, celebrations or get together.

Besan Ka halwa is a classic north Indian sweet which is prepared with only Chickpea or Gram flour (a.k.a. Besan) milk and sugar, but my mum always prepared this halwa with Mawa or Khoya as she was very much fond of using khoya in her cooking and also I learnt something else from her that if you want your besan halwa to not stick in your mouth, roast chick pea flour properly and don't rush. Maybe this recipe is easy to prepare but will take time and patience.

Last week daughter had an exam, so I wanted her to have fresh food during her exam. She just wanted to eat Badam(Almond) Ka halwa with Chickpea curry and Paratha. Once I put the phone down, I thought about making Badam Besan Ka Halwa as I thought that alongside feeding my daughter, my blog needed some feeding too with new recipes! So I prepared few dishes which are favourite of hers and took with us. She immensely enjoyed it and so did my whole family too.
