Rawa(Semolina) 250 gm, Ghee(Clarified Butter) 250 gm,
Grain Sugar 400 gm, Milk or Water 1 liter,
Cashews 50 gm, Raisins(Kismis) 50 gm


Mix semolina and ghee at room temperature. Now roast this mixture in a heavy-bottomed pan or kadhai till it’s golden brown. Now add milk, mix well and then add sugar. Cook for 5 minutes. Add the cashews and raisins. Cover the pot with a wet cloth(muslin cloth-4 folds; squeeze the wet cloth before using) and cover this with a lid. Cook for 2-5 minutes. This keeps the halwa from becoming lumpy as the cloth soaks up the steam.

P.S. Always add the milk first and then the sugar; this keeps the milk from curdling.
