Besan Halwa

Recipe courtesy Beyond Celiac Ambassador Annika Dhariwal, who runs the blog Gluten-Free Jio

Besan is the Hindi word for gram flour. Also known as garbanzo flour or chickpea flour, besan is made from ground chickpeas, which are naturally gluten-free.

This recipe is for a deliciously rich Indian dessert that’s full of flavor. Find more recipes from Annika on her website.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup besan (gram flour)
  • ½ cup ghee
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 2 cups water, warm
  • 2 pinches saffron soaked in 2 Tablespoons warm milk
  • 1 teaspoon cardamom powder
  • 2 Tablespoons pistachio slivers
  • 2 Tablespoons almond slivers

Directions:

  1. Sieve the besan to a fine flour. Make sure that there are no lumps in the flour.
  2. Heat ghee in a heavy bottom steel pan.
  3. Once the ghee is hot, lower the heat to medium and add besan to it.
  4. Take a heavy flat spatula and start roasting the besan in ghee. After 2 minutes, reduce the heat to low.
  5. Stir and roast the besan in ghee on low heat for about 15 minutes.
  6. Roast the besan until it starts separating from the ghee. At that point, begin to slowly add 2 cups of warm water to the pan, stirring until the water is absorbed.
  7. When the water is absorbed, add the sugar, cardamom and saffron soaked in milk. Keep stirring continuously.
  8. Switch off the heat when you see the desired consistency (some prefer it a bit smoother, like a paste, and others with more substance and shape) and let it stand for 2-3 minutes.
  9. Garnish with chopped pistachios and almonds and serve warm.

Quesillo (Flan)

September 14, 2022

From Maria Luci, Beyond Celiac Director of Research Engagement

This recipe is from my Cuban mother, Ana, who doesn’t always love to cook but when she does she always puts a lot of love into it. She shared this and other family recipes with me when I got married. I treasure the recipe book she made me.

Gluten-Free Cuban Quesillo

Ingredients:

  • 2 cans of condensed milk
  • 2 cans of evaporated milk
  • 8 eggs
  • 8 Tablespoons sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons water
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla extract

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F
  2. In a small cookie can* make caramel by mixing the 8 Tbs of sugar with 3 Tbs of water over medium heat. Stir continuously until it turns light brown, then remove from heat.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix the condensed milk, evaporated milk, eggs and vanilla. Once it’s thoroughly combined, put it in the cookie can on top of the caramel.
  4. Cook in the oven at 375°F for about an hour, until you can get a toothpick to come out clean from the middle.
  5. Remove from oven and let cool.
  6. When the can is cool, place it in the refrigerator. Leave it there until you’re ready to serve.
  7. About 20 minutes before serving, boil a pot of water.
  8. Once boiling, hold the can carefully so the bottom is in the water. This will melt the caramel.
  9. Turn the can upside down over a large dish. Cut into pie slices or squares.

* Editor’s note: this is my mother’s wording, but I’ve seen her use spring form pans or flan molds like this one from Amazon (affiliate link).
