How to Make Black Jaggery Halwa

  • 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.
  • In a large wide, non-stick pan, mix together the black jaggery liquid, coconut milk, rice flour and extra 1 cup of water.
  • Heat the pan in medium to low heat, keep stirring without any lump formation.
  • 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.
  • Keep stirring until the ghee is completely absorbed by the halwa.
  • At this stage take off from heat and pour it on a greased plate and level the surface.
  • Sprinkle some cashews and desiccated coconut on top. Cut it into squares and serve.
