Dates Halwa

Dates are said to be rich in Iron.U can do this recipe without adding the milk also - just adding Mawa - then reduce the amount of sugar by 1/4 cup and try this recipe.This is one of the fruit desert which is the easiest  one to do.U need just 12-15 mins time in the kitchen.

Dates Halwa


Ingredients

1 tbsp mawa
100 ml full cream milk(made into thick paste with dates and sugar)
25 dates (de-seeded)
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp green cardamom powder
2 tbsp ghee
3 no.s peeled and blanched almonds or cashews for garnishing

Directions
1.Clean and blend dates with milk and boil the blended dates in a pan.
2.When it boils add reduces to half,add mawa and stir-cook for 2-3 mins.
3.When it gets thickened,add green cardamom powder and ghee and cook stirring continuously for 4-6 mins adding a tsp of ghee every min on low-flame.
4.Cook on low flame till ghee oozes.Garnish with almond or cashews in centre of the halwa.

Note:

U need to add atleast 2 tbsp ghee for this halwa and the halwa should not thicken too much - U shd stop it when it comes to carrot Halwa like semi-dry.It happens within 12-15 mins of the dish.Otherwise this halwa becomes sticky and harder.
