As the name suggests, Kashmiri Halwa is a delicacy from Kashmir and is made out of oats, milk, dry fruits and saffron. This dessert is not only yummy but also easy to make. You can choose to have this with paratha, puri or roti. So, if you are still thinking to make a last-minute dessert for your guests- then Kashmiri halwa would be a great addition to your feast!
Here Is The Full Step-By-Step Recipe Of Kashmiri Halwa:
To make this dish, you would require one cup of oats, two cups of milk, half cup of grain sugar, 4 tablespoons of ghee, one teaspoon of green cardamom powder, two-three saffron threads and dry fruits like nuts, cashews and almonds.
First, add two-three tablespoons of ghee in a non-stick pan. To that, add your oats and cook till the colour changes slightly. In a separate pan, heat milk and sugar till it boils. Once the sugar is dissolved completely, add fried oats and stir continuously. To this, add cardamom powder and remaining ghee. Mix this well. Then add the saffron threads; once the aroma of the halwa reaches your nose, it is ready to be served. At last, garnish it with dry fruits and enjoy.
