Sugar - 1/2 cup (as your choice of sweetness)
Cardamom powder - 1/2 tsp
Coconut slices - 1/2 cup
Cashew nuts n raisins - 2-3 tsp
Bay leaf - 1 pc
A pinch of Salt
Boiled Milk - 2 cups

Method :-

  • Boil the milk with sugar. Add a pinch of salt, crushed bay leaf . Add 1/2 cup water to the rice flour and mix it and make it liquid form batter. When sugar get melt completely, add the rice batter slowly slowly and stir it continuously.
  • Cook it in low-medium flame. Make sure that there should no lumps. Add the coconut chunks and cashews. Cook about 8-10 mins, when it comes to halwa consistency add 1 tsp ghee and mix well. Switch off the flame.
