Halwa refers to many types of dense, sweet confections , served across the Middle East, South Asia, Central Asia, West Asia, North Africa, and the Jewish world.
Various types of halva from India are distinguished by the region and the ingredients from which they are prepared. The most famous include sooji (or suji) halwa, aate ka halwa, moong dal ka halva, gajar halwa , dudhi halwa, chana daal halwa , and Satyanarayan halwa (variation of suji halwa, with the addition of detectable traces of banana), and kaju halva (cashew nut).
Today I would be sharing the recipe for sooji ka halwa.
- Suji : 1 cup
- Milk : 1cup
- Sugar: 3/4 cup
- Ghee: 2 tbsp
- Salt : 1 pinch
- Cashew : broken 2-3 tbsp
Heat the ghee in a pan, add the Suji and roast it till it turns in light brown color.
Remove from the pan and keep aside.
Combine 1 cup of water, milk, sugar, and pinch of salt, mix well bring it to boil.
Add the roasted sooji and stir continuously till sugar syrup and suji get mixed throughly.
Add the cashew nuts, cover and cook for 2 minutes.
Go ahead and try this and do let me know.
