Custard Halwa

On the occasion of Guru Poornima I made Custard Halwa. An instant dessert that can be made easily. And the jelly like consistency was yummy.

Ingredients :
Milk : 2 cups
Sugar : 3/4 cup
Cardamom : 1
Custard Powder : 5 tbsp
Water : 1/2 cup
Ghee : 1 tsp and for greasing the Mould
Cashew : 2 tbsp (Crushed into small pieces )
Almond and Pistachio's : for garnishing

Procedure :
1. In a deep bottomed pan boil the milk with sugar, crushed cardamom pods and crushed cashew pieces.
2. Meanwhile mix the custard powder with water.
3. Once the milk comes to a boil add the custard powder mixture and ghee.
4. Cook on a low flame till you get the consistency of halwa. The ghee starts leaving the sides.
5. And pour the mixture on a greased thali. Garnish with pistachio and almond slivers. Once it cools down cut in into small squares.

P.S : You can use any custard powder. I used strawberry flavoured ones.
