Godhumba halwa


Broken wheat: 1 tumbler
Sugar: 3 tumblers
Ghee: One-and-a-half tumblers
Roasted cashew nut: a handful
Hot water: a couple of tumblers


Soak the wheat for four hours and grind coarsely. Add water and sieve. Repeat till the wheat milk has been extracted. Let it stand overnight. The next morning, decant the water on top of the extracted milk. You'll be left with about a tumbler of thick wheat milk.

Make sugar syrup with water in a thick-bottomed pan. Once it comes to a boil, add the wheat milk and stir. Add some hot water and continue stirring.

Ten minutes later, add some ghee and stir till the mixture leaves the sides of the pan.

Add more ghee, a pinch of orange food colour and powdered cardamom. Once the mixture turns semi-solid, add a couple of drops of lime juice. Pour onto a plate greased with ghee and garnish with cashew.

After half an hour, cut it into pieces and serve.
