I was little hesitant thinking it will take much time and tedious to make halwa. It is such a simple one compared to other halwa. It uses less ghee and not very much time consuming too. Even a beginner can make this very easily as steps are very simple and there is no specific consistency for the sugar syrup. I referred many recipes and slightly adapted the recipe from here. This is my third entry to make these desserts theme in Blogging Marathon.

Notes

You can fry the cashews in ghee and use.

I felt sugar was just correct. But you can use upto 1:3 ratio if you like it more sweet.

I used non stick pan so it was easily coming together. You can use more or less ghee as per your preference.

Make sure corn flour is mixed with water properly. It will settle down if you mix and keep for long time. So give a quick stir before adding to boiling sugar syrup.
