  • Heat ghee in a large heavy pan, add rava.

  • Add boiling water to the rava, little at a time stirring continuously. Take care to protect hands from the spluttering. When well mixed, check rava grain between fingers and taste for sweetness.
  • Adjust sweetness, and add more boiling water if grain is hard. Add the remaining ingredients, cover and simmer till ghee separates.
  • Save a small amount of almonds and cashews for garnishing. Add colour and mix well. Grease a katori or steel cup. Press hot halwa inside it, and unmould onto a plate. Garnish with a few slivers of almonds and cashews.
