WHEAT HALWA

We celebrated our 10th Anniversery on Feb 7th. I made this halwa. This recipe i got from my friend's MIL, who makes awesome sweets, the highlight of this it needs less effort in string the halwa. I was planning to make it for Diwali but i could not . so I made this for this occasion and it turned so well.

Sugar - required quantity

Ghee - 200 gms

Keseri powder or red colour - one generous pinch

Cardamon powder - one pinch

Cashews for garnishing


Method

1. Soak the Wheat overnight and grind it to a paste.Keep it aside for 1 hr. After that you can see the water will come up, strain that.

2. if the paste is 1 cup add 3 cups of sugar and mix well, add the colour.

3. Keep this in a vessel and close with a lid and keep it in a pressure cooker as we do or making rice.

4. when the steam come out in a high pressure from the cooker put the cooker weight and keep the flame in Sim. Cook for 35 minutes in the low flame.

5. when you can open the cooker transfer to a heavy bottom pan and add 1/2 cup ghee ( cup in which u measured the paste) and cook well, mix it nicely.
