Ingredients to make Mahim/Bombay Ice Halwa

  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1-1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup ghee
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup slivered almonds and pista
  • 1 tbsp rose syrup
  • 1 tsp crushed cardamom seeds
  • 2 nonstick parchment sheets

How to make Mahim/Bombay Ice Halwa

  1. Heat ghee in nonstick or thick bottomed wok.
  2. Combine milk, flour and sugar and to the hot ghee.
  3. Keep stirring constantly to prevent sticking to the pan on medium low heat.
  4. Keep cooking till the mixture starts coming together and forms a dough.
  5. Add rose syrup and mix well into the dough.
  6. Lay a nonstick parchment paper on clean surface. Spread the dough in a thin layer.
  7. Place another sheet of parchment paper over the mixture and roll gently for even surface.
  8. Remove the top sheet and spread slivered almonds, pistas and cardamom seeds all over the surface of the mixture.
  9. Place the parchment sheet again over the mixture and press lightly with rolling pin.
  10. Leave for 1 hour and then slice them up in squares (about 16). Keep the halwa to dry for 4-5 days. Flip the squares once to dry the reverse side too after couple of days.

My Tip:

If nonstick parchment paper is not available, then grease regular parchment papers.
