Maida Halwa

My last but not least delicacy which i prepared for diwali festival is this maida halwa, hope u guys have enjoyed ur festival of lights during ur weekened, we enjoyed visiting our families and our relatives, this weekend really run away very fastly...With loads of sweets and savouries, i really dont want to cook or eat anything today, gonna prepare just some salads for our lunch...Coming to this maida halwa, i prepared simply with milk,sugar syrup and some nuts..This maida halwa need very less time and really worth to try out, u dont need to go for usual process of making out halwa by mixing the flour with water and leave aside for few hours until the flour gets settled at the bottom of the vessel, i prepared this halwa by roasting the maida with ghee and poured the hot sugar sryup over the cooking maida and cooked until the halwa gets off from the bottom of the vessel, quite a simple sweet na...



1cup Maida
1/2cup Ghee
2cup Sugar
1/2cup Milk
Food colour
1/2tsp Cardamom powder
Pinch Salt
Few Almond flakes & Pistachio nuts

Heat the ghee in a large pan and add gradually the maida,salt to the ghee, fry for few minutes and add the milk, adding milk will cook slightly the maida, meanwhile make a one string sugar syrup with sugar and half a cup of water.

Add the cardamom powder and food colour to this boiling sugar syrup and add this syrup by stirring continously over the cooking maida, cook until the halwa get off from the pan,it will turn out like a ball...grease flat plate and pour this halwa over the greased plate.

Springle the almond flakes and pistachio nuts over the halwa,give a press and let them get cool..

Slice the halwa as any shape as ur desire...
