    Cashew Halwa


    Ingredients:

    4-1/2 cups Milk - make kova

    ½ cup Cashew
    1 Tbsp Ghee

    1-1/4 cup grated Khoya

    1 cup Sugar

    ½ Tsp Cardamom Powder

    2 Tbsp Shredded Almonds

    For Garnish - Shredded Cashew

    Method:

    Soak the Cashew s in water for half an hour and make a paste with a little milk.

    Mix the paste in ghee and keep aside.

    Heat ghee in a kadhai and when it starts to thicken a bit add khoya to it.

    Stir well and see that it doesn’t stick to the bottom of the kadhai.

    When the mixture becomes a bit thick add sugar to it and mix well.

    Add shredded Cashew s, cardamom powder and mix well.

    Check the sweetness and then garnish well with Cashew and also sprinkle cardamom powder on it.

    Serve hot or cold.

    Note: We can prepare this Halwa with less quantity of cashews.

    Mixed Fruit Halwa



    Ingredients:

    Whole Punjab Wheat – 1 cup
    Sugar – 1 and 1/2 cups
    Cardamom Powder – 1/2 sp
    Ghee –6 tablespoons
    Saffron colour – 1 pinch (you can choose the colour as per your wish)
    1/2 cup chopped dry fruits like cashew, badam and pista
    1/2 cup chopped dried fig, tutty fruity and dates.

    Method:

    Wash and soak the wheat for 12 hours. Grind in a mixer grinder by adding 1 cup water.

    Strain through a sieve to get a thick milk.

    Grind again adding ½ cup of water and strain again and squeeze out all the milk.

    Keep aside. Pour all the milk in to a thick bottomed pan, add sugar and cook on a low flame.

    Keep stirring continuously. Put one sp ghee in a deep plate and spread it.

    Add the ghee spoon by spoon when the halwa starts thickenng.

    Add the cardamom powder and the saffron colour.

    Add all chopped dry fruits and nuts.Mix well. Stir well.

    Take one spoon halwa and try to roll it. If you are able to roll it with your fingers means it is done.

    In another pan put 1 sp ghee and fry the chopped dry fruits and add that in the halwa.

    Spread the halwa on the greased plate. Allow to cool and cut into desired shape.


    Note: If you want a thick halwa like what we get in sweet shops, add 2 cups sugar in place of 1 and 1/2 cups.

    Besan Ki Burfi


    Ingredients :

    1 cup besan flour

    1 cup sugar

    1cup shortening

    1/4 sp. cardamom powders

    1/2 cup walnuts broken into small pieces (optional)


    Method:

    Melt shortening in a pan.

    Turn down heat and add cardamom and Besan.

    Fry, stirring constantly to prevent burning until it has changed color to light brown

    and smells done.

    (Test: a few drops of water sprinkled on the goo splutters instantly).

    Turn off heat and stir in sugar and the nuts.

    Spread on a platter 1/2" thick.

    Cut into diamond shapes after it has cooled down.
