Karachi Halwa - Cornflour Halwa

Karachi Halwa / Cornflour Halwa, I read about this sweet in a magazine. From that time on I was trying to make this sweet, but for some reason I was not able to do it. As Christmas is nearing, I wanted to try some different sweet which I have never made before. Immediately, this recipe came to my mind and I tried it. Wow! it was really awesome. Everyone at my home loved it. Especially my both sons liked it a lot. So, I got one sweet to make for this Christmas :)

Cornflour - 1 Cup
Sugar - 2.5 Cups
Water - 3 Cups
Cashew Nuts (Broken into pieces) - 2 tbsp.
Ghee - 3 tbsp.
Orange Food Color - 2 pinch
Cardamom Powder - 1/2 tsp

1. Heat ghee in a pan and add the broken cashew nuts and fry till light brown color. Before starting the process of making the halwa, grease a plate with ghee and keep it ready.
2. Add cornflour and a cup of water in a bowl and mix well without any lumps. Add the food color and mix well.
3. Add water in a pan and bring to boil. Once it starts boiling add the sugar and allow it dissolve completely.
4. When the sugar is completely dissolved, add the cornflour mix and stir continuously. Note, mix the cornflour water once again before pouring into the pan. 
5. Keep stirring continuously. Add a teaspoon of ghee and keep stirring. At this stage, you will get a glossy texture.
6. Now, add the roasted cashew nuts and another teaspoon of ghee and stir well. 
7. Once the nuts are mixed well and when you see the halwa consistency, switch off the flame.  Pour the halwa into the greased plate and allow it to set for about an hour.
 After an hour, cut it into square or diamond shape. Yummy Cornflour / Karchi Halwa is ready to taste.
