Karachi Halwa Recipe

Karachi Halwa is one of the easiest to make and tasty too. I have added a dash of lemon to it to add that tang!!

Ingredients :

  • 1 cup custard powder
  • 2.5 cups sugar
  • 4 cups water
  • A large pinch of saffron
  • A fistful of cashew bits
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • 3 tbsps ghee

Method :

Roast the cashew bits in a tsp of ghee/clarified butter. Keep them aside. Tip in the sugar, water and the custard powder into a non stick pan. Add lemon juice to it. Take care to see that the mixture is free from lumps. Add the saffron and keep stirring it on a medium flame. At one point the mixture starts thickening. Lower the flame and add the ghee and the roasted cashew bits and stir till it leaves the side of the pan. Pour it into a pre greased plate. Allow to cool thoroughly. Cut into desired shape.
