Date Halwa

This recipe is from my friend Radha who always tried out new stuff and shared it with me.

Seedless dates : 1 cup
Milk : 1 cup
Sugar : 1 cup
Ghee : 4 Table spoons
Cardamom 4 powdered, 2 Tbsps of chopped cashewnuts and pistachios


Wash the dates well and chop into small pieces.Add this to the milk.Add a 1/2 cup of water also and pressure cook for 10 minutes.Take it out of the cooker and lightly mash with a pestle.Transfer the contents to a thick pan and add sugar.Keep on fire and stir continuously till sugar is totally dissolved. Next add the ghee a little at a time and keep on stirring till the halva leaves the sides of the pan. Remove from fire and add the cardamom powder mix well and pour on to a grease thali.Garnish with the nuts and cut into cubes and serve.
