Ingredients to make Thirunelveli halwa using wheat flour

  • Wheat flour 1 cup
  • Ghee 1 cup
  • sugar 2 1/4 cup
  • water 5 1/2 cup
  • cardamom powder 1 tsp
  • cashew nuts 10 to 15

How to make Thirunelveli halwa using wheat flour

  1. First knead the Flour as chapatti dough using 1/2 cup water. Soak that dough in remaining 5 cups of water for 3 to 4 hours.
  2. Fry cashew nuts in 1 tbls of ghee and set aside
  3. After 3 hrs mix the dough well with hands to extract the milk. Filter the milk using a thin cloth or tea filter. Use the soaked water to extract the milk.
  4. Take a heavy bottomed pan preferably non-stick and pour the extracted milk and allow it to boil.
  5. After 15 to 20 min it will start to get thick. Add 2 cups sugar and stir continuously.
  6. After around 30 minutes prepare caramelized sugar to give the color to our halwa.
  7. In another dry kadai add the ¼ cup sugar and 2 tbls ghee and keep in medium flame and stir. Sugar starts to melt and caramelize. Once you get thick brown colour add the caramelized syrup in to the boiling wheat milk and mix well.
  8. Take care while adding the caramelized syrup as it will spill.
  9. Add the 1tbls of melted ghee a a time and stir continuously. Now you can see the halwa gets its colour and it becomes little darker while getting thicker consistency.
  10. Add the fried cashews and cardamom powder in between and stir, stir, stir… Heat should be in medium level all the time. In between add 1 tbls ghee at regular intervals.
  11. At one stage the halwa will starts to ooze the ghee, and comes as single mass ie., it won’t stick with the pan and come nicely and shiny.
  12. Remove from heat and serve.
My Tip: If you want the halwa to be more sweeter you can add more ¼ cup of sugar. But 2 cups is enough. You can mix ¼ cup of oil with ¾ cup ghee. But using ghee alone will give wonder ful flavour and taste to the halwa While cooling ,the ghee in halwa becomes solidify so if u wish u can heat in microwave oven and serve hot. I want the little crunchy cashews so added after 1 hour. You can add in the beginning also. For me it took around 1 hr 15 minutes to complete. Always cook in medium heat to avoid burning at the bottom.
