Corn Starch Halwa

Happy Valentine's Day :)
Corn starch halwa is very simple to make in a less amount of time.

What you need:

Corn starch-1 cup
Sugar-1 cup
Water-3 cups
Cardamom powder-1/4 a teaspoon
Ghee-2 tablespoons
For garnishing-some pomegranate seeds and almonds


  1. Mix the corn flour with one cup of water without forming any lumps and keep it aside.
  2. Melt the sugar in two cups of water and boil it in a non stick pan or heavy bottomed vessel.
  3. Once the sugar melts, lower the flame and add the corn starch liquid. Stir it continuously for two minutes. 
  4. Now add the cardamom powder and ghee to it and stir until it reaches the halwa consistency. When the halwa gets a thick glassy texture, turn off the stove.
  5. Transfer it onto a greased plate and allow it to settle for some time. Then cut into desired shapes and garnish with dry nuts


            Delicious corn starch halwa is ready now :)

Note: You can also add cashew nuts and pistachios to the halwa, before turning off the stove.
