Halwa is one of my favorite and hubby's too,this is a very famous sweet in my home town,usually halwa is made of whole wheat but this one is with maida and ghee.I make this sweet for special occasions and here is the recipe for the mouth watering recipe...
|All purpose flour||1cup|
|Food color(red or orange)||1/8tsp|
Mix maida,corn flour,salt and food color with 2-21/2 cups of water(like buttermilk),strain it and set aside.Keep a heavy bottom wide mouth pan on the stove top with half cup of water,dissolve the sugar and let it boil till it reaches single string consistency.
- To get a perfect halwa the amount ghee is so important so don't compromise on that.
- Using corn flour with the maida is optional but it gives a glossy texture to the halwa.
- The amount sugar can be increased or decreased according ti your taste buds.
