Halwa is a type of sweet confectionery particularly popular in Asia and the Balkans.  It can be flour-based (often made from semolina, oil and sugar) or nut-butter based (made from sesame paste or sunflower seed butter).  Additional ingredients can include various types of fruit, vegetables, nuts and grains.

In India, halwa is most commonly made from ingredients such as semolina, carrot or chickpeas.
