Maida Halwa-200th Post


This is the 200th post on my blog and in celebration of that, here is a simple and very tasty maida halwa recipe...

Ingredients

1 cup Maida
Sugar
A pinch of Red orange colour
1/2 tsp cardamom powder
Few roasted cashews
Ghee

Make a very thin batter of Maida adding lots of water. It should be very watery. Now, leave it covered for atleast 2 hrs. All the water would come up by this time. Now drain out the water slowly ensuring that the maida doesnt get drained out.

Measure the maida now and make a sticky syrup of equal quantity of sugar and some water. Add the maida paste to the syrup and keep stirring well. Add the color to it. After a few minutes, it would get very thick. At this point, start adding ghee to it. The halwa would absorb any quantity of ghee and so its completely one's choice with respect to the quantity of ghee required in the halwa. Keep stirring for a while and when it starts leaving the sides of the vessel, transfer it to a greased plate and use the spatula to make it even and flat. Leave it for about five minutes and then use a greased knife to cut the halwa into pieces. Garnish with roasted cashews.

If you are going to make in larger quantities and store it for a few days, you would have to refrigerate the same.

@ Mansi..Thanks a lot. There is no proper measurement for water and ghee...But you could easily add about 4 to 5 cups of water for 1 cup of maida and drain out all the water after the maida settles down in about 2 hrs time. Regd ghee..the more the tastier but if you are diet conscious even lesser quantity of ghee would do.

@ Bee, Cham,Sandhya, Rupa, Divya, Shriya, Dee, Pooja, Kaykat, Meera and Sagari...Thanks a lot, hope you try it out
