My sweet sil Thuri comes from the family that makes the best mithai, and she was so kind to share the recipe of this delicious Walnut Halwa made by her beautiful mom
Walnuts are a good source of healthy fats and they’re as good eaten plain but don’t we all love something abit next level once in awhile eh?
Such a delicious treat that can be made easily using the most comforting ingredients
You could definitely use condensed milk or sugar instead but I opted for Kithul jaggery this time as we prefer that flavour..
- Three Cups Walnuts
- Two Cups Ghee/Clarified Butter
- Two Cups Milk Powder
- One Cup Grated Jaggery melted with 1/2 cup water and cardamom powder
- One Cup Milk
First let’s prep the ingredients
Soak the walnuts in milk for at least one hour.
Strain the mixture
Blend the nuts coarsely leaving the milk for later
Mix the milk powder with one cup water and one tbsp ghee.You could either use your fingers or put them into a food processor
Set this mixture aside, till you get the rest of the ingredients ready
You could also use khoya for this recipe
Melt the grated jaggery in a saucepan, with water and crushed cardamom pods.This has to be warm before using otherwise its gets hard, so make this when you’re about make the halwa.
Now you can actually start making the halwa.Keep everything ready because you need to make sure the stirring never stops till the end
In a saucepan mix in the coarsely ground walnuts with the ghee and keep on medium high flame while stirring continuously for about 10 minutes
Next add in the milk and keep stirring
Now add in the milk powder mixture and mix well
Make sure they’re well combined
Keep stirring for another 10 minutes and you will notice the colour changes gradually
Time to add in the melted jaggery
Few minutes later
Stirring doesn’t stop yet….
Five minutes later
The oil starts coming off the edges of the pan and you will notice the halwa mixture coming together.Now it’s time !!!!
