Corn Flour Halwa

I know I know its been since ages i updated my blog regularly(almost a year) :(
So with the start of new year planning to update my food blog regularly without fail... have set a target So i will work towards that
Please wish me luck with that.

Coming to the post lets start with a sweet dish
The recipe for corn flour halwa it is also known as Karachi halwa or Bombay halwa.
The WWW is flooded with recipes of this particular sweet however all are same with the ingredients and the measurement.
Don't do any mistakes in measuring the ingredients and I am sure you will get a delicious halwa in 20 Min's flat.

Makes 15-20 pieces of 1-2" cubes


Corn flour 1/2 Cup  
Sugar 1 1/2 cup
Water 1 cup(for sugar syrup)
Water 1 1/2 cups(to be mixed with corn flour)
Ghee 2 tbsp
Cashew nuts 1/4 cups, chopped finely
food colour of your choice(I used turmeric powder) 1/2 tsp


Mix cornflour along with 1 and 1/2 cups of water in a mixing bowl(add the water slowly at regular intervals to avoid lumps).Then add food colour and mix well.Keep aside.


Fry the cashew nuts until golden brown and keep aside.
In a pan take sugar and add 1 cup of water. Let the sugar dissolve completely and become slightly thick.
When the syrup starts boiling vigorously,  pour the corn flour liquid(keep stirring on a low flame)
Keep on stirring the liquid at the beginning you will notice small lumps here and there but within a few minute(2-3 min) the whole liquid becomes gooey and glossy in no tome.

At this stage you can add ghee and fried cashew nuts.
Keep stirring for 10 Min's or until it becomes a whole mass and starts leaving the sides of pan.

Turn off the heat and transfer it to a greased plate
Let it rest for 1 hour

cut in to desired shape and serve

DON'T alter the quantity of ingredients as it may result unexpected results
I used turmeric powder since i dint have any food colour you can use any food colour available(using turmeric powder does not result in any variation in taste)
The shelf life 2-3 days under refrigeration

At Last HAPPY NEW YEAR :D Have a great 2015
