Hello everyone! Hope you have been having a great start to the new year.
Today I thought I could share a simple recipe but with my twist which makes it decadent but so yummy too. Halwas are quick to make sweet recipes that kids love. This one is made by besan or gram flour.
These are the things you will be needing.
2 cups besan (gram flour)
2 cups shredded coconut (tender or dessicated)
1 cup powdered cashew
2 cups powdered sugar or more if you like sweet
1/2 tablespoon cardamom powder
7-8 tsp of ghee (clarified butter)
3 cups of milk
Dry fruits to garnish
How to make it:
Add 1-2 tsp of ghee to a pan and pour the besan in it, roast it evenly on low burner till it changes colour. Pour out the besan to a dish and let it cool. Then pour 4-5 tsps of ghee and add the shredded coconut, saute till it loses all the moisture, then add the cashew powder. Then add the roasted besan and cardomom.
Then add the sugar and keep stirring on low heat. It will melt but if not it will melt once you add the milk. Then pour the milk to this and mix it properly. At this point add the milk powder if you want to, this is optional if you adding cream. I added it because I think it has a distinct flavour. Then keep stirring so that it doesn’t create lumps. Once it is all blended you can add the cream.
Put it in refrigerator and add chopped dry fruits before serving. This tastes very lovely and is so easy to make.
