Main Equipment Used

Steps In Making

  1. Heat ghee in a kadai and then add besan in it. Roast on medium flame for 7-8 minutes till it turns aromatic and gets a nice golden brown colour. Do not roast on high flame else it will burn.
  2. Now slowly add little milk at a time and while stirring it continuously cook till the milk is absorbed by the besan.
  3. Add sugar and while stirring it continuously cook till the sugar is completely dissolved.
  4. Further add cardamom powder, cashews and almonds.
  5. Lastly add a tablespoon of ghee and mix well.
  6. Serve hot!

Recipe Notes

  • You can reduce the quantity of ghee if needed.
  • Sugar can be adjusted as per your taste.
  • You can use water instead of milk but I would recommend for a more richer taste and texture use milk.
  • After keeping the halwa in the refrigerator if it becomes dry then add half a cup of milk and cook for 2 minutes, it will again turn soft.
  • Please measure all the ingredients from the same cup/katori
