Peanut - 1 small cup
Sugar - 1cup
Maida - 3tsp
Milk - 3tsp
Ghee - 3tsp (can add as more as u want :))
Water - 2cups
Elaichi - 7 to 10
small Pinch of red colour
- In a pan dry roast the peanuts and badam for few mins till they turn light brown colour and take them aside.
- When they are cool add elaichi's to it and grind it into a powder (ok if some badam pieces are left over).
- Now take them into a plate, add maida, sugar to it and mix well and keep aside.
- Heat a pan add water, milk, colour and let it boil.
- When boiling add ghee and the powdered mix and keep mixing (else lumps may be formed) till it is mixed thoroughly without any lumps.
- Keep mixing and it will become a little watery(means the sugar is dissolving) you can see air bubbles coming out and then it starts thickening.
- Now as we are mixing it forms a thick lump and immediately dump it into serving bowl (it will become thick more as it is cooled) and decorate it with chopped Badam and pour some powdered mix (the one we prepared before) on top of it.
- Now when it is cool you can cut it into pieces and serve it.
- All the pain that you went through stirring vanishes as soon as you have a bite of the halwa. :)Believe me it melts in your mouth and cant wait to have a second bite of it.
