How to Make Godi halwa

  • Cover the broken wheat with water and soak for two hours.
  • Soak almonds in warm water, and remove the skin.
  • Soak the saffron strands in a little warm water.
  • Grind the soaked wheat with water, and filter through a mesh to extract the wheat milk.
  • Grind it yet again with some more water and extract more milk.
  • Repeat the process till all the wheat milk is extracted and discard the solids.
  • Add water, if necessary to make 4 cups of wheat milk.
  • Cook the wheat milk with sugar in a heavy-bottomed pan.
  • Keep stirring to avoid lumps.
  • Once it starts boiling, it will thicken very fast. So keep stirring.
  • Add 1/2 of the ghee and keep cooking until the mixture turns into a thick custard.
  • Add the soaked saffron and blend well.
  • Add the remaining ghee and cardamom powder and remove from heat when the halwa leaves the sides of the pan.
  • Pour into a greased plate and decorate with almonds.
  • The halwa will set like a custard when it cools down and you can cut them as desired.
