Corn-flour-halwa_1

This is a easy to make microwave corn flour halwa, you can make within 20 minutes. If you have un-expected guests and you want to make some sweet, you can make it so soon without sweat. This is my MIL’s trade mark sweet. She learnt it through a TV show. She makes and serves this proudly as it is made out of Microwave. And every body without fail will ask for the recipe and totally get impressed too.It uses very less ghee unlike other halwa recipe.  I could not click that well to show the delicious halwa. But the recipe and the taste is the main right.. so I think you all can adjust with it…
And Before going to the recipe, I want to say a very important thing…
HappyWISHING YOU ALL A VERY HAPPY AND PROSPEROUS DIWALI Party!!

Corn flour halwa recipe

Recipe Cuisine: Indian  |  Recipe Category: Sweet
Prep Time: 1 mins    |  Cook time: 10 mins    Serves: 4

Ingredients


Corn flour (white starch) 1/2 cup
Sugar 1 & 1/2 cups
Water 2 cups
Ealchi powder A pinch
Cashews 5 nos.
Ghee 2 –3  tsp
Food colour 1/2 pinch

 

Method

  1. Mix corn flour,sugar,water and food colour in a large microwavable bowl, without any lumps.
  2. ch1
  3. Microwave in high for 6 minutes. After 4 minutes in between, mix once. Again microwave for 6 minutes, stirring in between after every 2 minutes of interval.
  4. ch2
  5. Fry cashews in ghee till golden brown and mix well. Grease a plate with ghee and pour in the plate and let it cool down for 1/2 hour or so. Cut into pieces and enjoy!
  6. ch3

Notes

  • Stirring in between as mentioned is very important to ensure even cooking.
  • Do not reduce the sugar amount,as it will change the glossy look too and end up in porridge ;)
  • The whole process is made in microwave high power.
  • According to oven the cooking time varies plus or minus 2-3 minutes.
  • Consume within one or two days. Refrigeration changes the texture so it is not recommended.
  • There is a easy way to remember the recipe. 1 part corn flour,3 parts sugar,4 parts water. i.e; which ever cup u use, use the same cup and follow the ratio. Simple.
It has a texture just like jelly, but sure sweeter than that. Do try and you will agree that this is the easiest halwa you have ever made! corn-flour-halwa-microwave-1 Celebrate a safe Diwali and see you all after the festival!

  23. Just tried the recipe.I did with 1/4 cup proportion.Turned out tasty and really good.Very easy and quick recipe.
    A question-Do we increase the timings if we increase the proportion? and how do we know it is done to pour on the tray?

  39. This is my favourite sweet. I have made it in the past and got it right. These days I have not been able to make it basically because I am lazy:)! Love to try this one. Need one clarification though Microwave in high for 6 minutes. After 4 minutes in between, mix once. Again microwave for 6 minutes, stirring in between after every 2 . Do I have to micro for 6 mins first and then stir or stir after 4 mins and keep again for 2 mins.

  86. Hi ,i tried this Halwa, but its sill not get solid,its look like paste, can you help me to fix this, i need to put it again in oven?

    ReplyDelete
  87. Did you add everything in correct ratio? if you reduce sugar, it will be like a paste. If you are sure about the measurements, sure you can keep heating one minute until it reaaches halwa consistency

    ReplyDelete
  88. Hello, tried this twice......first with the exact measurements that you'd mentioned in the recipe.....second time with twice the amount.....came out great both times......thank you so much for sharing this recipe and many others.....
    Love your blog. Good luck for the future and have a very happy and wonderful 2013.

  91. Hi Raks

    I made this yesterday. Both Me & my hubby liked it. Thanks. But it came out like a porridge only. I used the exact measurements like u said. But my corn flour is yellow in color - yours seem to be white. And I used cane sugar. But I wonder how u got this result - it has to be grainy right - yours is smooth and transparent - does it all have to do with the corn flour ? Thanks again.

    1. Hi pavithra. This recipe uses white corn starch. Yellow will not work.... Try with white one, sure it will come out good!

      Delete
    2. Thanks Raks. I can buy white corn starch anywhere right - need not be from Indian store. Also I guess white corn flour is different white corn starch. Right?

      Delete
    3. Yes correct. Its corn starch and you can buy any where.

  99. Hi I just tried this recipe, as I was excited seeing such an easy rrecipe for halwa and it has turned out well except that I couldn't spread it across the greased pan evenly as it was sticky. Any specific technique you used to do that?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Usually as we pour it into the tray it spreads itself we just have to wait until cool down and then cut. May be u cooked more than needed or undercooked.

      Delete
  100. I did this today on a gas stove. The taste was good...but unable to cut into pieces....I guess I added more ghee....since I was not able to make pieces I microwave it for 2 min... But bad luck... Ur tip on this plz....

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It okay chitra, spoon the halwa in bowl, no need to cut into pieces, at the end only taste matters and after all this is not burfi to feel bad, its halwa, so you can serve in bowl as well.
