Pandan Halwa

A very tasty and yummy preparation of halwa from India blended with local pandan flavor.

1 cup corn flour
1/4 cup ghee
2 cups sugar
1 cup pandan juice (5 pandan leaves blended & strained)
3 cups  water
50 gm cashewnuts chopped finely
a bit cardamom powder
a pinch of salt

Dry roast the cornflour in low flame for few seconds.

Fry the cashewnuts lightly with ghee and set aside.

In a non-stick pan, mix corn flour, sugar, pandan juice, water, salt and half of the ghee and stir over a low flame.

After a while when it becomes completely like jelly, add cardamom powder, cashew nuts and the balance ghee. Keep stirring until the ghee separates out and the mixture comes together as a semi solid mass.

Remove and spread in a greased tray and cut when cold.
