MAIDA HALWA

When I was a child my mom use to make this halwa for my b'day.every year on my b'day amma use to ask me what special you want for you b'day, and I ask for this halwa with pulihora(Tamarind rice)or gulab jamun with pulihora and this is the menu for my every b'day.Thank you so so much amma for this lovely halwa. TAMIL PUTHANDU VAZHTHUKKAL
HAPPY TAMIL NEW YEAR TO ALL



Maida (all purpose flour) --- 1 cup
sugar ---- 1 &1/2 cup (or according to your taste you can increase or decrease the sugar)
red orange food color --- 2 pinches
Cashew nuts --- 20 broken and roasted
Ghee --- 2 cups
Cardamom powder --- 1 tea sp

METHOD:-----

Shift maida in to a big bowl and add water to make a thin batter like rava dosa batter and add food color to this maida batter and leave a side.
Now add little water to sugar and boil it to make a sticky syrup(add a little water to sugar don't add too much water ).
Now add maida mixture to the sugar syrup keep stirring well. with in 6-8 min it will get thick.
In the same time heat the ghee, now start adding the ghee to the maida and sugar syrup mixture and keep stirring. The halwa would absorb all the ghee then again add some more ghee and keep stirring,by the time you finish the ghee halwa starts to leave the sides of the pan and it will become like a ball around to your laddle. Now add cardamom powder and mix well.
Now transfer it in to a greased plate and make it flat with a spoon and let it cool and cut in to pieces with a greased knife and garnish with roasted cashew nuts.
enjoy your sweet.
this will stay for 10 days .
