Sweet Corn Halwa for Krishna Janmashtami


I wish all Neivedyam visitors a very happy Krishna Janmashtami!!
I am posting this in advance as I will be very busy decorating my kids as little Krishnas:)

Ingredients

1 cup sweet corn (frozen or fresh- Boiled and pureed)
3-4 tbsp ghee
dry fruits for garnish
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup Khoya
3-4 tbsp milk (optional)
1/2 tsp cardamom powder

Preparation

Heat a pan and add 1tsp ghee. To this add raisins, cashew nuts and almonds. Saute well and set aside. In the same pan add 2 tbsp ghee and sweet corn puree. Let it cook for a minute. To this add sugar, milk, khoya, cardamom powder and 1 tbsp ghee. If you do not get good khoya, you can add plain sweet pedas and reduce the sugar content. When the mixture cooks and leaves the sides of the pan, remove from heat and garnish with dry fruits and serve. This halwa is very healthy for kids.
