    Ten Minute Wheat Halwa - no compromise in taste!!

    This recipe is ideal for a beginner who wants to make Wheat Halwa for the first time!
    Use a tall vessel, so that on cooling & taking out, you can use the handblender inside the vessel & blend it when hot. it iseeasy that way.

    Mix together:

    Wheat flour - 1 cup

    Sugar - 1 cup

    Milk - 1 ½ cups

    Ghee - ½ cup

    Cashew nuts & raisins each 4 tsps, fried in 1 tbsp of above ghee

    cardamom powder - 1 tsp
    Colour - a pinch, of your choice

    Keep the mixture in a tall vessel inside the pressure cooker.

    When the first whistle comes, lower the flame & cook for 10 mtes.

    Cool & open.

    Beat the mixture with a whisk or hand blender for the texture to become smooth & uniform.

    Kesar Chikki - famous in Rajkot

    Chopped almond+cashews - 1 cup (roast lightly on a tava to crispen)

    Brown sugar - 1 cup

    Ghee - 1 tsp

    Saffron - ¼ tsp (warm & powder)

    Add 2 tbsp water to brown sugar in a saucepan & heat.

    When the sugar becomes syrupy to honey colour, add kesar, dry fruits & switch off.

    With a greased rolling pin & board, cut rounds & make small discs in flat muffin pans.

    The entire procedure has to be done fast because it tends to harden to transfer to muffin pans. Ofcourse you can break into pieces & use. But this looks nice to present!:)

    Keeps for a month.
