Tirunelveli Godhumai Halwa~~IC Challenge

Since a week, am trying to come back to routine eventhough its kinda hard for me that why i couldnt able to post my recipes quite frequently since few days, am yet to get rid of the laziness..I have completely forgotten about this month's Indian Cooking Challenge, thats the reason am posting my post bit lately eventhough i have prepared this fabulous halwa during this weekend..Seriously i have a bunch of halwa lovers at home, even after finishing few kgs of halwa while travelling in India, my sweet tooth was seriously craving for some sweets, fortunately this month's Indian cooking challenge was this authentic Tirunelveli halwa ,which pulled me immediately to give a try.. Even this halwa goes for a long process, its quite worth to try and my H didnt stop enjoying this glossy delicious halwa..Thanks to Srivalli for choosing this fabulous halwa,we truly enjoyed it..She shared four links for this godhuma halwa to try but my choice went to Lathamma's Wheat Halwa which sounds super prefect for me but used more ghee and sugar to satisfy our tastebuds ..


1cup Wheat berries
2cups Sugar
1/4cup Cashew nuts
1/2cup Ghee
1tsp Cardamom powder
Orange food colour dissolved in milk
Few melon seeds for garnishing

Soak the wheat berries for a day (change the water atleast twice in between)..grind it in a blender with enough water and strain the grounded paste and squeeze out the milk from the grounded berries and filter the liquid..Repeat the process by blending the wheat berries with enough water and discard the grounded berries after extracting well the milk..

Pour the wheat milk in a thick bottomed pan, add the sugar and cook on low flame stirring continously..Add the ghee little by little once the halwa starts thickening,finally add the cardamom powder,cashew nuts and orange food colour dissolved in milk, mix well..Cook until the halwa gets off the vessel..Serve either in a bowl topped with some melon seeds or spread on a greased plate and cut as desired shape..

Looks like the yeruttu kadai halwa. Yum! I like the way it just slips through the throat. I am reminded of my Tirunelveli and Kutrallam trips :-)
