Recipe Cook Time


Sohan Halwa is a traditional Indian sweet made with maida, milk and dry fruits. Traditionally it is made in circular rounds.


  • 1/2 kg sugar

    1/2 kg cornflour or maida

    1/4 kg almonds

    100 gm pistachio

    50 gm green cardamom

    1/2 kg ghee

    1 cup milk

    2 liters water

    1 tsp saffron


Heat 1 liter water, add sugar and boil for 5 minutes.

Add 1 cup milk and boil for 5 minutes.

Strain it through a muslin bag or thin cloth.

Add the remaining water and sugar syrup.

Dissolve 1 tsp saffron in warm water and add.

Dissolve the cornflour in a little water. Add to the cornflour mixture and cook over low flame.

When cornflour becomes thick, add 1 tbsp ghee.

Continue adding ghee (1/2 kg) slowly during cooking to prevent it from sticking to the pan.

Stir it well. As ghee separates from the mixture, then it is ready.

Add almonds, pistachio & green cardamoms in it.

Grease a pan or tray with oil.

Spread halwa in it & press with a wooden spoon to flatten it.

Garnish it with almonds, pistachio and cardamoms.

As it cools down, cut it into pieces and serve.
