  4. Such a nice colour, Ambreen!
    My mother used to make a thin consistency of besan for colds, then I improvised it to eat it as parshaad when I went on gluten free living and used chickpea flour.Besan and chickpea flour are made from two different bean and taste slightly different.They both tastes great,though. check my version here http://www.simpleglutenfreekitchen.com/2011/11/parshad.html

  23. This is one of my favourite halwas. However, I don't make it at home often because firstly, I don't have the time or patience to stir it for so long and secondly, my husband is really very calorie conscious. Your pics are making me drool.

    1. I really enjoyed your blog and I can't wait to try the halva recipe. I am vegan so I will have to use coconut oil instead of ghee, but the results will hopefully be similar :) Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog. I hope you will come and visit again!
