Double Coloured Cornflour Halwa

This has become a favourite dessert  within my family from the time I have tried the recipe .  This has a very few ingredients and can be made in a jiffy, needs only 1 hr setting time and 15 min cooking time.

This halwa is basically made of cornflour not semolina (suji). This is a type of halwa is crumbly and  nutty , made of nuts and ghee.

Main Ingredients :

  • Cornflour 1/2 cup
  • water 2 cup
  • Sugar 2 cup
  • Ghee 4 to 5 tablespoon
  • Fried cashew  1/3 of a cup
  • Cardamom a pinch
  • 2 types of  edible food colour ( here I have chosen red and yellow)

Method :

Take Cornflour and water in a mixing bowl and whisk it . Ensure that no lumps are formed. Keep it aside.

Take water preferably in a non-stick pan and add sugar  and allow it to boil. Wait till it becomes slightly thick , now add the cornflour mixture, keep stirring on low flame.Stir continously to avoid lumps.

It will start to take a glossy texture as it thickens. Now add the ghee and cardamom powder , mix well, at this point of time add some fried cashew nuts, it will give a nutty flavour to the sweet . Stir continuously once it start to leave the sides of the pan. Switch of the flame.

Now make two halves of the mixture , on one half add red food colour and to the other half add yellow food colour. Transfer the two halves in two separate ghee greased bowl.
