  • 1 cup - broken Wheat
  • 2 cups - Sugar
  • 2 cups - Milk
  • 2 cups - water
  • 1/4 cup + 4 tsp - Ghee
  • 2 pods - green cardamom, powdered
  • Dry fruits to garnish (cashews, almonds, raisins)
  • How to Make Broken Wheat Halwa - Lapsi Halwa:

    1. In a wide pan, heat 1/4 cup of ghee.
    2. Add the broken wheat and saute on medium flame for 10-15 minutes or until you get a mild aroma.
    3. Add milk and mix well.
    4. Add water and mix well.
    5. Cook well, mixing the ingredients frequently to avoid burning at the bottom.
    6. When the water and milk have almost evaporated, add sugar and mix well.
    7. When you feel the preparation is almost done, try moving a spatula through the centre of the pan. You should see a path forming the way the spatula moves.
    8. Add 4 tsp of ghee and mix well.
    9. Add the cardamom powder and mix well.
    10. Transfer to a mildly greased plate and pat well.
    11. Garnish with dry fruits.
