Posted by Veena Karanth at 14:41:00
Godi Halwa is one of the  tastiest halwa,which was famous since our forefathers days itself. It has to be prepared with lots of effort and the method is quite tedious and time consuming. In fact I was exhausted after cooking the halwa but the happiest thing was that the halwa meticulously turned out well and the recipe was a hit. Here, in this recipe we will have to grind the wheat, and strain the same. Later on, we have to mix it with sugar and continue stirring till it reaches the halwa consistency.

How To Prepare Godi Halwa.

The time consumed to prepare this halwa is around 10 hours to soak the wheat, 20 minutes of grinding and around 45 minutes of cooking. The quantity mentioned here is enough to obtain around 50 pieces.

Ingredients For Godi Halwa.

  • Samba Wheat - 1 cup.
  • Sugar - 3 cups.
  • Ghee - 1 1/2 cup
  • Cardamom powder - 1 tsp.
  • Cashew nuts - 15.

Method To Make Godi Halwa.

  • Wash and soak the wheat for 12 hours.
  • Grind the wheat in the grinder by adding water at regular intervals till it is fully blended.
  • Now take a big bowl and cover it with a muslin cloth.
  • Sieve the ground wheat along with the liquid through the muslin cloth.
  • Grind the residue wheat once again in the grinder along with the water and sieve it through the muslin cloth again.
  • Let the sieved wheat milk stay in bowl undisturbed for around 2 hours.
  • Now discard the water collected on the top and use only the thick mixture at the bottom of the bowl.
  • Heat a thick pan and add the wheat residue into it.
  • Add the required quantity of sugar.
  • All you have to do now is keep stirring without any break.
  • Add ghee at regular intervals and keep stirring.
  • The mixture continues to grow thick and at a particular stage it would be quite stiff to move the ladle.
  • After the required time of about 45 minutes, you would find a gloss effect in the halwa which indicates the completion of the cooking process.
  • At this stage, add broken cashew nut pieces and cardamom powder.
  • Mix it well and pour it on a greased plate.

Kitchen masti Points.

  1. It would be wise to grind the wheat in a grinder instead of a mixer for a better result.
  2. Using samba wheat is a wise option.
  3. Nutmeg powder can also be added for a unique taste.
  4. Cook the halwa on a medium heat and see to it that it does not get burnt at the base of the pan. So maintaining the heat is an important task.
  5. Cooking this halwa is a tedious process, so patience is the most important ingredient.
