On Your Finger Tips

Monday, May 21, 2007


Ingredients :
Wheat Flour - 1 Cup
Sugar - 1 Cup
Ghee - 1 Cup
Water - 3 Cups
Milk - 1 Cup
Fruits - Of Your Choice(I added Pineapple,Apple and Banana)
Dry Fruits - Of Your Choice

Method :
1) Fry the wheat flour with little ghee,till the raw smell goes off and you get a nice aroma.
2) Chop all fresh fruits/canned in to small pieces,fry in 1 Tsp of ghee(Optional) and keep aside.
3) Boil milk and water,When boiling,simmer the stove and add the wheat flour and stir continuously to avoid knots.Add ghee to it and stir well.You can first add little ghee and then keep adding little by little as you require.Don't add all at once.
4) Once the mixture is knot free add the sugar and stir well.Let it cook well,keep stirring every 3-4 minutes.When the mixture is getting stiff add the fresh cut fruits and dry fruits and cook for another 5 minutes.
5) You can stop the preparation however you wish.If you want it bit loose,stop in step 4.If you want it in pieces cook for some more time when its very stiff and transfer it to a buttered plate,spread and let cool,Cut as you wish,use it as it is or chilled.That's it,Wheat Halwa is ready.Very good for growing children and nursing mothers.
