Recipe

Cosmos Big Banner Radio Caravan
Ghee, Nut and Maida Flour Halwa

By: Unknown
Region: Indian
Dish:Vegetarian - Desserts
Servings: 6 pieces

Ingredients

3/4 Cup Maida Flour (Finely Milled Wheat Flour)
1-1/4 Cups Granulated Sugar
2-1/2 Cups Water
1 Cup Clarified Butter "Ghee" or (1/2 Cup Olive Oil + 1/2 Cup Clarified Butter)
1/2 Tsp Cardamom Powder
1/4 Cup Cashews
Orange Food Color (Optional)

Directions

Heat about a tbsp of Clarified Butter and "lightly" brown the cashews. Set aside.
Make the "sugar syrup" by placing water and sugar in a pan and cooking it on a medium flame for about 15 minutes. It doesn't have to be extremely sticky.

In a pan, dry fry the flour for about 5 minutes until it is slightly browned.
Add the Clarified butter to the flour and keep stirring until it resembles a coarse meal.
Pour the sugar syrup by ladle-fuls to the flour mixture - stir until the flour thickens

Add more sugar syrup.Repeat the above step. Continuous stirring is the key.

Throw in the browned cashews to the flour along with some more syrup.If using the food color now would be the time to add it.(I skipped the food coloring this time).

Repeat until you exhaust all the sugar syrup. The "halwa" should come away from the sides of the pan.


After nearly 20 minutes of stirring and adding this is how it should look like. (Add 2tbsp more ghee as a finishing touch if you prefer a more decadent version).

After nearly 20 minutes of stirring and adding this is how it should look like. (Add 2tbsp more ghee as a finishing touch if you prefer a more decadent version). Serve warm, cold or at room temperature.
