Ingredients

How to Make Okkarai

  • Take a tbsp of ghee or unsalted butter and sesame oil in a pan.
  • Add besan to it and roast till it turns reddish.
  • Heat jaggery in a cup of water separately. Stir till jaggery completely dissolves in water. This mix should be watery.
  • Add cardamom powder to the jaggery water while it boils.
  • Add jaggery water to reddish besan, continuously stirring.
  • Keep stirring the mix and continue to add ghee-sesame oil from time to time.
  • Add cashewnuts to it and continue stirring well.
  • When the smell of fresh besan ceases and the aroma of halwa fills the air, it means the okkarai is done.
