Its a indian/pakistani mitai, kinda toffy-ish, brown, sometimes called a sticky pudding... Anyways, point is, it tastes really good. :P If you don't know what it is, here's a pic so I don't confuse you any further..

I tried the Habshi Halwa recipe this past weekend, but it flopped. I think either there need to be another ingredient or something has to replace the eggs - it was like scrambled eggs with nuts!!!!

 

Does anyone have another recipe for Habshi Halwa?

:D

:D Brothers and sisters'

 

Just thought I should point out that according to the Ambala website the Habshi Halwa contains these ingredients too;

 

Habshi Halwa blends together a vast number of ingredients, each more tempting than the last, to create a sticky pudding that's bursting with taste sensations. Milk, sprouted wheat, sugar, butter ghee, cashew nuts, almonds, pistachio nuts and cardamom – each used in finely balanced proportions – all go into our Habshi Halwa.

 

:D I did think that there should be flour somewhere in the recipe that was given by the bro on the first page!!! :D

 

Will keep an eye out for the recipe though, Insha'Allah.

 

:D

:D Again

 

Found this which could be of some use??? :D

 

Wheat Halwa

Samba wheat - 3 cup, Ghee - 4 cups, Cardamom - 4, Sugar - 3 times of the milk extracted from the wheat, Cashew nuts - 20, Saffron - few strands

Extracting milk from wheat: Soak wheat for 2 nights. Grind in grinder adding water occasionally. Place a piece of cloth inside a sieve and pour the gound wheat on it and collected the filetred milk in a vessel. You may grind the same wheat again once or twice until the entire milk is extracted.Leave the extracted milk for one hour. The thick milk will settle down and water liquid will stay on top. Remove the dilute portion by pouring it out. Measure the quantity of this milk. The amount of sugar should be three times that of this milk.

Make sugar syrup by heating sugar and water in the ratio 1:1 until it becomes a think liquid. Pour the milk in the syrup and keep stirring. Boil 3 cups of water separately. When the mix becomes quite thick, add water in steps of 1 cup every time the mix becomes thick until the halwa is well cooked. Add ghee, saffron and keep stirring.When the ghee begins to separate, add cardamom powder and remove from flame. Pour this in a large plate. Roast a few cashewnuts in ghee and decorate.

 

 

Sounds similar. :D
