Ashoka Halwa

Deepavali Recipe :Ashoka Halwa

This halwa is made with the combination of paasi paruppu,wheat and all purpose flour. I'm preparing this halwa for the first time and came out great. The taste was somehow totaly different from other halwa.

Serving size:5


1 cup paasi
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup wheat flour
3 cup sugar
1.5 cup melted ghee

1/4 cup hot milk

few drops of red food coloring
1/2 tsp cardamom powder
2tbsp cashew nuts
1tbsp raisins
Preparation Method:Pressure cook mung beans with about 3 cups of water and sugar till soft and mash till smooth. On low flame heat ghee on a non-stick pan and add the flours stirring continuously until there is no lumps.Then add hot milk and let it dissolve in the flour mixture.

Now add the mashed mung daal, cardamon powder,cashew nuts,raisins and food color stirring well til the halwa leaves sides of the pan.

Transfer it to a greased plate and cool for some time and cut it into desired pieces.
