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.
