I am a big fan of halwa. I like all the varieties. The below mentioned measurement is for 10-15 pieces. I prepared it for me alone since husband is having cold and he cannot take sweets. So enjoy this with me 🙂
- 1/2 cup all purpose flour (maida)
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 2 tbsp ghee
- dry fruits
- edible orange color
- Heat ghee in a non-stick pan and fry the dry fruits of your choice. Remove the dry fruits and keep aside. Fry the maida in remaining ghee till nice aroma comes. Keep it on low flame.
- Remove from the heat and mix sugar and 1/2 cup water to maida. Make sure it doesn’t form any lumps. Keep stirring it and keep it back on stove.
- Add 1/4 tsp of orange color and stir the halwa till it reaches the halwa consistency(little sticky). Grease a plate or tray and pour the halwa on it. Allow it to cool and cut into diagonal or rectangular pieces. Garnish with the fried dry fruits.
