Halwa , typing the name itself makes me drooling. I ate halwa bought from store. First time tried at home. I used whole wheat flour to make this halwa.
First , I thought of making halwa with whole wheat , after thinking of the long process , I opted this flour halwa . as this is easy to make .
Wheat flour – 1 cup
Sugar – 1 cup
Ghee – ½ cup
Food colour ( optional )
Rose Essence / cardamom powder
Dry roast the wheat flour in a kadai till the aroma comes and keeps aside.
Mix this flour with two cup of water and bring to boil.
Stir continuously for about fifteen minutes.
At this stage , it will become transparent , add the sugar and mix well.
Sugar will melt and merges with the flour giving a shiny appearance. Add the food colour and mix well.
Add the chopped cashew , rose essence and ghee little by little and stir continuously.
At the beginning the halwa will engulf all the ghee.
At a stage , the used ghee will be oozing out of the halwa - perfect halwa is ready.
Take off from the flame and pour into the greased tray.
Let it cool and cut into desired shapes.
This halwa can be stored for about ten days at room temperature.
Delicious halwa is ready to serve.
It will be chewy and i liked it very much.
