Walnut Halwa - Old Recipe Revisited

By Priya Srinivasan - I Camp in My Kitchen - Wednesday, October 05, 2011

This Recipe is one of the oldest recipes in my blog. When i posted it for the first time, i didn't take any picture of it, i just posted only the recipe. Made this again after a very long time for my DH Birthday. We had a Halwa-Cutting Ceremony, instead of the traditional cake-cutting!!! :) 
I was planning to post it by last week But, Navrathri Celebrations and the Pooja, i really couldn't find time to sit and do a post.  Lets move on to the recipe of Walnut Halwa,  an Healthy Combination of Vegetable and Nuts.

2 Cups Walnut - (Soak in warm water and remove the skin) 
2 cups  Grated carrot 
1 Cup Milk 
11/2 Cup Sugar
1/2 Cup Ghee
5-8 pods Cardamom Crushed
Nuts For Garnishing


  • Grind Walnuts and Carrot adding little milk. 
  • Heat a heavy bottomed pan add walnut-carrot paste, the remaining milk, sugar and ghee. Keep the flame low and Stir occasionally. 
  • When ghee start leaving the sides add cardamom and mix well. Take it off the flame and garnish with nuts.
  • I used two small Silicon Heart-Shape Moulds for shaping the halwa.  Before pouring them to the mould, i scattered some roasted almond flakes in the mould and spread the halwa on top.
