You will Need
250gms of Wheat
750gms of Sugar
1/2 tsp of Powdered Cardamom
300gms of Ghee
3tbs of Broken Cahsewnuts
A pinch of Kesari Colour(optional)

How to

1. Soak the wheat or broken wheat for at least 12 hours.
2. Change  the water that it has been soaked in and grind it with some fresh water.
3. Run it through a strainer and collect the milk like liquid.


4. Repeat this process two more times i.e. extract milk twice.

5. Allow it to rest for some time (about one hour).The thin liquid will be seen on top.
6. Take a thick bottomed pan and pour the thin milk in and then add sugar. Another option is you can throw the thin water and make a sugar syrup with fresh water. If you are using fresh water, just add enough to cover the sugar.


7. Continue heating till you get the one string consistency.


8.  Add the color powder mixed with water and the rest of the wheat milk slowly. Keep stirring continuously with your right hand while you are pouring with the left. Otherwise it will solidify immediately.


9. Keep stirring till it becomes thick and keep adding Ghee on and off. It takes about 15 to 20 minutes.


10. Take a small portion cool it and roll it in to a ball with your fingers.


11. At this stage, add some Cashew nuts fried in ghee, cardamom powder. Grease a plate with ghee and keep it ready.


 12. Pour it on the plate and level it up with a smooth and flat bottomed cup.


13. Either enjoy it as a halwa when it is hot, or wait for half an hour and cut into pieces.
