Wheat Flour Halwa
Method
Pour ghee in a non stick pan add the cashew nuts fry till light brown,remove to a plate.
Now add the wheat flour to the ghee and in low flame fry the flour till colour changes and raw smell has completely disappered.Do not fry in high flame and burn the wheat flour.This step is very important otherwise your halwa will taste raw.
Reduce the flame to low and carefully add the boiling water and stir vigorously to avoid lumps.
If you are a beginner then once flour is roasted switch off the stove,cool a bit then pour the boiling hot water and quickly mix to avoid lumps,then switch on the stove.
Cook till the halwa has absorbed the water and its thick.Add the sugar and keep mixing till everything is combined.Now pour the caramelized sugar and mix well.
Lastly add the cardamom powder and fried cashew nuts and switch off the stove.
Serve this halwa hot or warm.

Note:
a) Fry the wheat flour till raw smell has completely gone otherwise the final product will still have the raw smell.This step is very important.
b) Use only boiling hot water,Do not add cold water.
c) You can add jaggery or brown sugar instead of white sugar.
