  1. Semolina: 1 cup.

  2. Sugar: ½ cup.

  3. Water: 4 cups.

  4. Ghee or White butter: 2 table spoons.

Step 1: Heat the ghee in a pan and roast the semolina in it until it is golden brown in colour.

Step 2: Add sugar and water to it. Keep stirring it at regular intervals. Once the sugar melts, cover the pan and leave it to cook on a low flame.

Step 3: After 5 minutes, check the consistency of the halwa. It should not stick to the pan and you should be able to pour it smoothly from your spoon just like condensed milk.

Once your halwa is made, pour it in a dish and garnish it with cardamom powder. You can also put grated coconut, cashew, raisins and pistachios.

Its now ready to be served and eaten.
