- when mixture is getting bubbles add 1 ½ – 2 cups of sugar, fried dry fruits and 3 cardamoms or elachi. You can crush the cardamom with stone or just remove the shell and add seeds, you can opt any method as your wish.
- Now sugar is melting in the halwa and it will be in thin consistency.
- Cook on medium flame upto mixture got thickened or upto your desired consistency, stir the halwa continuously.
- If it is cooked perfectly then you can observe ghee around the surrounding of the halwa and one more thing the halwa won’t get stick to the pan.
- To get halwa consistency it may take approximately around 8 – 9 minutes.
- Stir nicely to avoid burning to the bottom of the pan.
- Add 1tbsp of ghee and switch of the flame.
