1/4 kg almonds

100 gm pistachio

50 gm green cardamom

1/2 kg ghee

1 cup milk

2 liters water

1 tsp saffron
Heat 1 liter water, add sugar and boil for 5 minutes.

Add 1 cup milk and boil for 5 minutes.

Strain it through a muslin bag or thin cloth.

Add the remaining water and sugar syrup.

Dissolve 1 tsp saffron in warm water and add.

Dissolve the cornflour in a little water. Add to the cornflour mixture and cook over low flame.

When cornflour becomes thick, add 1 tbsp ghee.

Continue adding ghee (1/2 kg) slowly during cooking to prevent it from sticking to the pan.

Stir it well. As ghee separates from the mixture, then it is ready.

Add almonds, pistachio & green cardamoms in it.

Grease a pan or tray with oil.

Spread halwa in it & press with a wooden spoon to flatten it.

Garnish it with almonds, pistachio and cardamoms.
