Ingredients

  • 1 cup of ghee (clarified butter)
  • 1 cup of wheat flour (atta)
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 3 cups of water
  • 1/4th teaspoon of cardamom powder
  • 40 grams of raisins
  • 20 grams of sliced almonds
  • 5 grams of sliced pistachios (for garnishing)

Instructions

Step 1
First, in a kadhai or saucepan, add 3 cups of water.
Step 2
Then, add 1 cup of sugar. You can also use organic sugar or even jaggery powder, it all depends on your preference.
Step 3
Heat the water and sugar. And stir well for dissolving the sugar.
Step 4
Let the sugar solution come to a boil. It usually boils in around 2-3 minutes as we don’t need thread consistency in the sugar solution.
Step 5
In the meantime, take a large kadhai with a heavy bottom, and add 1 cup of ghee (clarified butter). Keeping both the pans on two burners simultaneously can prove beneficial. As once the flour is roasted, the sugar solution will also be hot.
Step 6
When the ghee becomes hot, add 1 cup of whole wheat flour and mix well.
Step 7
Now, roast the wheat flour on low to medium flame.
Step 8
Stir continuously till the flour starts to turn golden and aromatic. This process usually takes about 15 minutes.
Step 9
Keep on stirring for another 5-6 minutes to ensure even browning. The mixture will turn dark golden brown and start releasing ghee indicating that it has cooked completely.
Step 10
Next, pour the hot boiling sugar solution over the wheat mixture while stirring continuously. But be careful as the mixture has the tendency to splutter.
Step 11
Keep stirring continuously till the wheat flour absorbs all the water. You cannot take a break at this step.
Step 12
Then, continue to cook for another 4-5 minutes. Continue to stir and mix very well so that the lumps are not formed.
Step 13
After that, add 1/4th teaspoon of cardamom powder, sliced almonds, and raisins, and mix well.
Step 14
Once the Halwa’s consistency is semi-thick or thick and the ghee has also been released from the sides. Switch off the flame.
Step 15
