Quick N Easy Halwa

Halwa preparation is a elobrate procedure and is prepared using a special type of ingedient called 'samba wheat'. This requires the soaking of wheat and extarcing the milk that goes into the preparation of halwas. Neither do I get this kind wheat in my place nor would I dare to get into that lengthy procedure. My Mom still makes it the traditional way and nothing can beat the taste. My Mom gave this recipe to please my desire for halwa. I can say this came pretty close to the traditional method.


Wheat Flour - 1 cup
Milk - 2 cups
Sugar - 1½ Cups
Ghee - as required.
Cardamom Powder a pinch
Cashew - 8-10
Orange food Color a pinch


1. In about a spoon of ghee roast the cashews and set aside.
2. Mix cardamom and food color to the milk and set aside.
3. Roast the wheat flour in about 2 spoons of ghee and fry for 5 minutes over low heat. Stir constantly to avoid burning.
4. Now add milk to the wheat and mix well. This will cook well and form into a ball.
5. Add the sugar and cook till it comes off the pan without sticking.Add little ghee intemitently as reauired.
5. Remove to a bowl greased with ghee. Add the cashews and enjoy the sweet.

    jayshree, thanks to your mom and you for sharing this recipe. I have not tried halwa as it is very tedious one and also a consuming one also I don't get that much time. I can surely try this shortcut way of making my favorite halwa. thanks for sharing.

    Hey, the food on this blog looks great! I was wondering if you are the same VeggieDelight who posted this response to an inquiry about rennet on If so, then I wanted to know how your experimentation with making "cheese" from soy milk, rennet, etc went? I've just begun experimenting with the same process and I'm looking for useful pointers. You can e-mail me directly at fdffisher AT gwu DOT edu.
