  4. To the hot ghee add the semolina and roast on low heat for 4-5 mins to get an even golden colour
  5. Add the mashed bananas now and continue cooking for a minute.
  6. Add the nuts, figs, raisins and spices and continue cooking making sure that the mix does not stick to the bottom.
  7. Now pour in the milk, water and sugar mix and continue to stir on high heat till all liquid has been absorbed and the halwa is nicely thick and glossy.
