- In a pan add a tsp of ghee and fry the chopped cashew nuts till golden brown and keep it aside.
- Grease a plate with ghee and keep aside.
- In a bowl. mix the corn flour with 1 and 1/2 cup of water , food colour without any lumps.
- In a heavy bottomed pan or non stick pan add sugar and add 1 cup of water.
- Let the sugar gets dissolved , no need to check for string consistency.
- Simmer the flame and mix the corn flour mixture once nicely with a spoon and add it to the sugar syrup.
- Mix well in a medium low flame. Stir continuously.
- Add 1 tblsp of ghee and stir continuously to avoid forming lumps, this will give a glossy texture and the halwa starts getting transparent.
- Add the roasted cashew nuts when the mixture becomes thick.
- Stir well and mix well so that the cashews will get into the halwa.
- Add the remaining ghee and at this stage the halwa will be glossy and starts leaving from the sides of the pan.
- Transfer it to the greased plate. Either you can leave it for 2 hours to cool down and cut into pieces or you can serve it in a bowl too.
- I didn’t make it into pieces as i made the halwa around 3 30 in the evening and if i wait for 2 more hours there won’t be enough of sunlight to click the pictures.
- You can make this halwa in microwave too.
- The sweet is perfect for this halwa so no need to add extra sugar.
- Always ensure that the corn flour mixture will not have any lumps.
- This will stay good for 4-5 days in the refrigerator but the texture will not be the same if you keep it inside the refrigerator. So better to make it and consume within 2 days.
