Approximation is the key to indian kitchen. Most Indian women do not use measuring spoons or cups for measuring the ingredients, they have the power of approximation. Halwa is a traditional indian delicacy which is perfectly cooked by mothers. Here is a little twist to the traditional halwa.

Ingredients :

Method :
  • Heat ghee or oil in a thick bottomed pan.
  • Add organic sooji or rava and fry till they change color to light brown and you get a lovely aroma.
  • Add organic dry fruits and continue to fry for a few minutes.
  • Heat 1.5 cups of water in another pan.
  • Add this hot water to the sooji and dry fruits mixture and mix it well.
  • Add milk and sugar to the mixture and stir.
  • The semolina absorbs both water and milk quickly and swells.
  • Continue stirring so that the mixture does not stick at the bottom of the pan.
  • After 1 or 2 minutes, add organic alphonso mango pulp and stir again well and ensure that the mango pulp is mixed well.
  • Add cardamom powder and organic saffron and stir till the moisture reduces.
  • Cover with a lid and cook mango halwa for 1 or 2 minutes.
