How to make Bombay Karachi Halwa

  1. For the cornflour mixture -
  2. In a deep bowl, combine cornflour and water. Whisk it well to avoid lumps. Then add food colour and mix well. Keep aside.
  3. For Preparing Halwa -
  4. In a non-stick pan, take sugar and add 1 cup water. Allow it to boil, while stirring continuously.
  5. Let the sugar syrup become slightly thick and sticky. Here, you don’t need to worry about the string consistency. Just make sure that the syrup has begun to thicken.
  6. At this stage add the cornflour mixture. Stir continuously to avoid lumps. Once you notice that the mixture has started to thicken, immediately add lemon juice. We add lemon juice to avoid crystallization of sugar.
  7. Now gradually it will start to thicken and form a glossy texture. Add ghee and stir continuously till all the ghee is absorbed.
  8. Once the mixture becomes thick, transparent and starts to leave the sides of the pan, add chopped nuts and rose essence. Mix well and remove from flame.
  9. Now transfer the mixture to a ghee greased plate. Let it set for atleast an hour. Cut into squares and serve.
My Tip: You can use food colour of your choice and complement it with essence. Here, as we have used red colour, we have added rose essence. If you are using orange colour, you can add orange essence. You have to keep stirring continuously while making this halwa. Otherwise, lumps will be formed.
