    About this recipe: The inspiration for this wholemeal halwa is the classic Sikh preparation called 'karha prashad'. This halwa has the addition of cardamom, sultanas and nuts. My kids love this halwa on a cold day as a snack after school.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 8 

    • 125ml ghee (clarified butter)
    • 25g cashews
    • 40g sultanas
    • 120g wholemeal flour
    • 750ml water
    • 200g sugar
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom

    Method
    Prep:5min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:35min 

    1. Melt the ghee in a heavy-bottomed frying pan over medium heat; cook the cashews and sultanas in the melted ghee until the sultanas plump and the cashews are lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Remove the cashews and sultanas from the pan with a slotted spoon and set aside. Add the flour to the pan and roast till brown and nutty, about 10 minutes.
    2. Meanwhile, bring the water and sugar to the boil in a saucepan until the sugar dissolves to make a clear syrup. Stir the cardamom into the syrup; slowly pour over the roasted flour, stirring as you pour to avoid lumps. Continue cooking until the halwa pulls away from the sides of the pan, about 5 minutes more. Transfer to a serving dish and spread into an even layer; sprinkle the cashews and raisins over the halwa to serve.

    Something else. I added 1 tbsp desiccated coconut and left out the cashew nuts because I don't like them, and it was delicious! - 14 May 2010
