Walnut Halwa / Barfi

I can’t believe this is my first post for 2021. We are already in the second month and I haven’t been able to post any recipes lately. Firstly it was the holidays and then getting back into the routine.

While 2020 has been quite eventful on the personal front, I am looking forward to a more eventful 2021. New year, new beginnings, new hope and new ideas. The new year surely looks exciting and more promising. I need the support and positive vibes of all you lovely people who are a reason why I am here in the first place.

Starting my first post for the new year on a sweet note. This recipe is the most loved and appreciated one. It’s my personal favourite and has been on my mind for long. Everytime I make it, I am asked for the recipe and somehow I have missed posting it. But finally I am here with the recipe 🙂

Walnuts – 3 cups

Ghee – 3 Tbsp

Unsweetened Khoya/ Mawa/ Reduced Milk – 100 gms

Milk – 500ml (Prefer boiled milk)

2. To a pan add ghee and the ground walnuts. Roast the walnuts on a low flame for around 5-7 mins.
