Halwa is one Indian sweet dish which is made in almost all the Indian homes in several different ways using lentils,flours fruits and vegetables.Here I am presenting this dish the way I like it the most.
Semolina[Sooji/Rawa] : 1/2 cup
Gram Flour[besan] : 1/4 cup
Ghee : 2 tbsp
Cardomom Powder : 1/4 tsp
Saffron: Few strands [ soaked in a tbsp of warm milk ]
Sugar: 1 cup
Water: 1 cup
Dry Fruits: As per your choice
Heat ghee in a wok. With your one hand keep adding semolina and with your other hand keep stirring to avoid formation of lump. When the semolina starts changing the color start adding the gram floor with continuous stirring .You will observe a beautiful fragrance coming out of it.Cook till the mixture starts looking golden yellow. Keep stirring after every one min.Cook it on a medium flame.
On the other side heat one cup of water. Add sugar and cardamom powder and let the sugar dissolve completely. Take it off the flame and add saffron milk in it.
Now take the wok carrying semolina gram flour mix off the flame and pour this sugar water mixture into the wok slowly and stirring continuously.Mix dry fruits at this stage. Lit the gas and let it cook till the water gets dried.
Serve hot after garnishing with dry fruits.
