Broken Wheat Halwa with Jaggery & 2nd Blog Anniversary

Broken Wheat Halwa with Jaggery & 2nd Blog Anniversary



Hope everyone having good weekend, today is 2nd Anniversary of this blog.  I'm surprised that I completed two years of blogging (ignore the long breaks I took please ;) ) wow I never thought the sudden fit of blogging will last for this long.  But neither the less it did lasted and hopefully will last for a long time too. 

Let me Thank All my blogger friends for being the main reason for me to continue, people whom spend their time commenting and of course the silent readers .  Thanks to blogging I have few wonderful friends now.  So a BIG THANKS to everyone visiting this space and to others whom motivate me.

Let's end my speech here and go the today's recipe.  What a celebration without a sweet rite?  So here comes Broken Wheat Halwa, I did blog the recipe (here) before which was prepared by my sis's MIL but in this recipe I used jaggery syrup.




Serving ~ 4 people

Ingredients:

Broken/Craked Wheat - 1 Cup
Ghee/Classified butter - 2 tbs [as required]
Cardamom Powder - 1tsp
Dry Nuts - 2 tbs chopped [I used cashew, raisins, almond]

For Jaggery Syrup:


Jaggery - 3/4 Cup [ according to taste]
Water - 3 cups





Method
:

1. To make jaggery syrup/chasni, in a heavy bottom pan add jaggery, water and dissolve the jaggery completely in slow flame.  Do stir in intervals and bring to boil.  Let it boil for 5 mins in slow flame, and strain the syrup to remove any dirt from jaggery, it takes 10-15 mins in slow flame. 

2. Meanwhile, in a separate pan heat ghee roast cashew and keep aside.  In a same pan add broken wheat and roast in medium-slow flame for 4-5mins or until wheat colour turns to golden brown and nice aroma start coming.

3.  Now add the jaggery syrup slowly while stirring the mixture.  Mix everything nicely, cover the pan with lid and cook in slow flame for 5-8mins or until the water evaporated completely.  Do stir in intervals.

4.  The wheat has to cook properly, if required add more water.  Add nuts, cardamom powder mix well and cook for 2 minutes. 

Off the flame and let it rest for 5 mins.  One can add 2-3 tbs of ghee now for a more delicious version.
