Learn, how to make tempting Indian traditional sweet - Halwa. Normally Halwa is Indian traditional sweet, made from wheat flour. Enjoy serving up in winter. In this healthy homemade recipe, I used jaggery to make it healthier.

Preparation time - 2 minutes
Cooking time - 10 minutes




Ingredients to make Halwa:



Ghee - clarified butter

¾ cup
Wheat flour 
:
1 cup 
Semolina  (sooji)
:
2 table spoon
Jaggery
:
3/4 cup
Water

3 cups
Saffron
:
A few strands
Raisins

 Method to make Halwa:

  • Add ghee in a non-stick or thick bottom karhai. Add sooji and wheat flour to it and roast till light brown in colour.
  • Put the jaggery, saffron and water in a pan and bring to boil.
  • When flour if ready add hot jaggery water to it and cook well. At this stage add raisins. Stir properly.
