  • 1 cup - black Jaggery (powdered)
  • 1.5 cups - thick Coconut Milk
  • 2 tbsp - Rice flour
  • 3 tbsp - Ghee
  • 1/2 tsp - Cardamom powder
  • Few Cashewnuts and desiccated Coconut - to sprinkle on top
  • How to Make Black Jaggery Halwa:

    1. Melt the black jaggery in a saucepan with 2 tbsp of water, until it goes runny. Take it off from heat and sieve the liquid to avoid any sand particles.
    2. In a large wide, non-stick pan, mix together the black jaggery liquid, coconut milk, rice flour and extra 1 cup of water.
    3. Heat the pan in medium to low heat, keep stirring without any lump formation.
    4. As you keep stirring, the halwa will thicken and leave the sides of the pan, at this stage add cardamom powder and ghee little by little.
    5. Keep stirring until the ghee is completely absorbed by the halwa.
    6. At this stage take off from heat and pour it on a greased plate and level the surface.
    7. Sprinkle some cashews and desiccated coconut on top. Cut it into squares and serve.
