Introduction: 3-Ingredient Halwa
Halwa is an traditional Indian dish. There are so many varieties of Halwa that are prepared in every state. Thirunelveli Halwa is the Halwa variety of Tamilnadu. They make it using the Wheat flour. And now we can make without wheat but making it using semolina(Sooji). Which also has a high nutritional content like wheat.
Step 1: Supplies
Semolina-1 cup (150 grams)
Sugar-2 cups (300grams)
Clarified butter-1cup (50-75grams)
Dry fruits and nuts(optional)
Step 2: Soaking
Soak 1 cup of semolina in 5 cups of water for 2-3 hours.
Step 3: Filtering
Filter the soaked semolina and take the filtered water separately.
Step 4: Making Sugar Syrup
Take a sauce pan.
Add the sugar and water to the pan and boil it on a low flame.
Boil it till the syrup becomes Half string consistency.
Step 5: Mix the Filtered Water
Once the sugar syrup is ready mix the filtered semolina water and mix continuously.
Step 6: Caramelising the Sugar
In a pan take 5 tablespoons of sugar and 5 teaspoons of water.
Boil it until the sugar caramelises.
Once the sugar gets caramelised add it to the sugar and semolina mixture and mix well.
The caramelised sugar gives a rich taste and flavour.
