  • Cooking Time: 20 minutes


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour (maida)
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/4 cup ghee (clarified butter)
  • 1/4 cup chopped nuts (almonds, cashews, pistachios)
  • 1/4 tsp cardamom powder
  • 1/4 cup raisins


  1. Heat a non-stick pan on low heat and add the all-purpose flour (maida). Roast the flour until it turns golden brown, stirring continuously to avoid burning. This should take about 5-7 minutes.
  2. In a separate pot, bring the water to a boil. Once boiling, carefully pour the hot water into the roasted flour while stirring constantly to avoid lumps. Be careful as the mixture will sizzle and splatter.
  3. Continue to stir the mixture until it thickens and starts to leave the sides of the pan. This should take about 5-7 minutes.
  4. Add the ghee (clarified butter) to the pan and mix well. Cook for another 2-3 minutes.
  5. Add the chopped nuts, cardamom powder, and raisins to the mixture. Stir well to combine all the ingredients.
  6. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes until the halwa reaches a thick consistency.
  7. Remove from heat and let it cool slightly before serving.
