  • It will start to thicken in few mins.At this stage switch to spatula.Keep cooking in low flame.When it starts to thicken start adding ghee little by little.It starts to leave the sides of the pan and start rolling.
  • At this stage add remaining ghee and cook until its nonsticky.Now add ghee fried cashews and cardamom powder.Give a quick mix and switch off.
  • Easy and quick halwa ready in minutes.

Notes

  • The halwa is very smooth, if you like a texture then add 1/4 cup powdered nuts to the jamun-water mixture then proceed with same steps.
  • I felt the sweet was just right but if you prefer a bit more sweeter then add 3/4 cup sugar.It purely depends on the cane sugar variety you use.
  • You can add any nuts of your choice either cashews,almonds or even pistachios.
    I used homemade ghee so the flavour was too good.Use pure aromatic ghee for best flavour.
  • If you want chocolate flavoured halwa you can add 2 tbsp coco powder to the mixture.
