  1. Take a tray or plate and grease it with little ghee and keep it ready. Take corn flour in a mixing bowl. To that add 1.5 cups of water 

  2. Whisk well to have a smooth batter without any lumps. Heat a pan and add a teaspoon of ghee. Add broken cashews and almonds and fry them in ghee till the cashews turn golden brown color. Take this nuts and keep it aside

  3. Add sugar to the pan and add 1 cup of water. Let the sugar gets dissolved in water. Keep stirring in medium flame till the syrup becomes little thick and becomes sticky. No need for any string consistency. When the syrup gets sticky add the food color and mix well

  4. To this now add the corn flour batter little by little and keep stirring. Initially you can see some glossy texture here and there in the mixture.  Keep stirring till the whole mixture turns glossy.

  5. Add ghee little by little and keep stirring till all the ghee has been absorbed and the mixture comes to a halwa consistency. The mixture should roll like a ball without sticking to the sides of the pan. Also if you take a teaspoon of the halwa mixture in a plate and allow it to cool off, you should be able to make a ball out of the halwa mixture. This is the right stage to remove the halwa from flame. If you are not able to roll the halwa mixture like a ball, then keep stirring in low flame until this consistency is reached. Once the proper consistency is reached, add the roasted cashews and almonds along with cardamom powder 

  6. Mix the halwa well so that the nuts are combined well with the halwa. Remove the pan from flame. Pour the halwa mixture to the greased tray or vessel. 

  7. Flatten the halwa mixture with back of a spatula. Allow the halwa to cool down for atleast an hour. Then make rectangular or diamond shaped pieces out of the halwa

  8. The yummy and nutty Corn Flour Halwa is now ready to serve!
