Wheat Halwa

Wheat Halwa is delicious and liked by all. I have been waiting to try this recipe. I thought it was difficult to make halwa before i make it. But now it is very easy to make halwa. So lets make Wheat Halwa today.


     Wheat - 1 cup
     Water  -   5 cups
     Sugar  -  2 cups
     Ghee    - 3/4 cup
     Cashew nuts - few
     Cardamom powder - a pinch


1. Wash and soak the wheat overnight (6 hrs).

2. Drain the water and grind it with 1/2 cup water smoothly.

3. Filter it with a strainer.

4. Keep the collected wheat milk aside for 6 hrs.

5. Take a heavy bottomed pan and add 4 tspn of sugar and heat it on medium flame. Make sure you stir all the time. The sugar will melt and changes to brown colour.

 6. Add 1 cup water carefully as it will splutter. Stir well so that the caramelized sugar gets dissolved.

7. Now add the remaining sugar and mix until it dissolve.

8. Now add the wheat milk and remaining water to the sugar syrup and stir well.

 9. Keep on stirring it. when it comes to a thick consistency add little by little ghee.

10. Stir it continously. Now add cashewnuts to it.

11. While stirring the halwa should not stick to the pan. This is the right time to switch off the flame.

12. The wheat halwa is ready to serve.
