Arrowroot Biscuit Halwa

Arrowroot Biscuit Halwa

Makes - 12 slices (1 steel thali of 6 - inches in diameter)

You will need

1 tablespoon ghee
14 arrowroot biscuits, powdered (net weight 75g)
125 ml milk
60 - 70 g sugar
2 pinches of cardamom powder
Shallow fried raisins and cashew nuts (optional)
Extra 1 teaspoon ghee


Grease a steel thali with 1/2 teaspoon ghee and keep aside.

Make a powder of arrowroot biscuits in a mixer. Heat a thick non stick frying pan or kadai and heat 1 tablespoon ghee. Roast powdered biscuits in ghee on a low heat until fragrant and slight change in color (approximately 15 minutes). Maintain low to medium heat. Do not stir on high heat. Biscuit mixture will get dark brown.

Then add the milk mixture and stir well until it’s well mixed with biscuit powder.

Add sugar and cardamom powder. Mix well. Cover with a lid and cook on a low heat for 10 minutes or until the mixture leaves from the sides of the pan and dries up. Add shallow fried cashew nuts and raisins (optional) and mix well.

Pour the mixture on a greased thali and sprinkle remaining 1/2 teaspoon ghee over it and spread it evenly with a flat spatula. Keep aside to cool for half an hour and later cut it into desired shape and sizes. Or you can serve in dessert bowls.
