WHEAT RAVA HALWA


INGREDIENTS:
Wheat rava                                  1 cup
Brown sugar                                1 cup
Jaggery                                        1 cup
Ghee                                  1 tbsp+1tsp
Water                                         3 cups
Cardamom powder                      1 tsp



PROCEDURE:
1) Crush the jaggery and keep aside.
Heat ghee in a pan and then fry the cashew nuts until golden brown.
2) Take water in a pan .Once water starts to boil add wheat rava in a pan.

Cover and cook till the rava is soft . It should not be mushy. (it took 20 minutes for me to cook as my rava was a bit big.)

3) Now add the sugar and jaggery to it.  Let it melt and it forms syrup.(5-8 mins).Mix well and the syrup gets absorbed by rava.

Add ghee and mix well.
Cook for 2 minutes until the ghee is absorbed.
4)Add the crushed cardamom powder and fried cashew nuts.

Turn off heat.
