Sweet Corn Halwa

For the day 2 of blogging marathon#26 under the theme pick one ingredient and make 3 recipes is a tempting sweet made with corn.
I have already posted a halwa made with corn flour which is known as Karachi halwa but today's recipe is with the sweet corn kernels.
I saw this recipe in a T.V cooking show competition and the measurements were not clearly mentioned.So with those ingredients I recreated the recipe according to our taste buds.
The taste of the halwa is almost like the badam halwa with the flavor of saffron.As I made this one for the first time I used only one cup of corn and the output was just enough for 3 people for a serving.Now off to the recipe..............

Ingredients

IngredientQuantity
Sweet corn kernels1cup
Sugar3/4cup
Unsweetned khoya/mawa(grated)1/2cup
Ghee/nei3-4tbs
Milk 2-3tbs
Saffron 4-5 threads


Method

                         Cook the corn kernels with a cup of water in a microwave oven for 5-6 minutes.Drain the water completely after cooling grind it to a fine paste with the milk as needed.
Now heat a pan with 2tbs of ghee and add the corn paste and stir it well till the smell goes away.Add the sugar and mix well.Stir it till the mixture becomes glossy and thick.
At this point add the grated khoya and mix it well.Add the remaining ghee.
Stir it till everything comes together and the ghee leaves the sides of the pan,put off the stove.Finally crush the saffron threads to it and give it a mix.
Delicious and mouthwatering Corn Halwa is ready.
 Serve it warm.

 Enjoy.................................................................





  • The halwa doesn't need any fried nuts and cardamom powder the flavor of the saffron is enough.But if you want you can add fried cashews and almonds.
  • Make sure the corn is grind smoothly to a fine paste,thats is very important for the texture of the halwa.
