I saw this recipe on a local TV show in Tamil as Corn Flour Halwa and a simple recipe I tried this out and pretty good,so I have diversified the name according to the ratio, so I named this as 123 Halwa since the ratio of the ingredients is such, go ahead and try it out, cook on low flame since it is cornflour.

1 2 3 HAL WA


Corn flour 1 cup
Sugar 2 cups
Water 3 cups
Ghee 3 tbsp
Raisin 1 tbsp
Cashew nut (broken) 1 tbsp
Saffron 1/2 tsp
Pinch of salt

-In a bowl 1 cup of cornflour,2 cups of sugar, add 3 cups of water gradually and make a fine paste without any lumps,keep aside.
-Heat a nonstick pan and saute the cashew nuts till light brown in 1 tbsp of ghee, now add the raisins also and saute, take it and keep aside.
-In the same nonstick pan add the remaining ghee and pour in the mixture of the cornflour and keep stirring , add a pinch of salt , the saffron strands and keep stirring constantly on low flame. At this stage you will notice that the mixture is thickening into a nice Hal wa consistency, when it is almost dry and leaving the sides of the pan with ghee on the sides remove and garnish with the cashew nuts and raisins.
-Your halwa is ready, tastes good hot or cold.

Sugar 2 cups
