Custard Powder Halva

Custard Powder Halva is a sweet dish prepared using custard powder. It is an easy task and you will like it at the end when it is completely done. The taste of the Halva invites you to have more and more pieces. It can be cut it into pieces nicely and the colour is also so rich. I have seen many people prepared this Halva and put up pics in Foodie group. The pics inspired me to prepare this halva .
As I said it is very easy to prepare and do not take much time too. Any brand of custard powder can be used. You can use milk or water. Option is yours. Using more sugar helps to thicken the halva very quickly and gives a good shape too.
Lets see the recipe :

Things Needed :

Custard Powder : 1 Cup (Any flavour)
Sugar : 2 1/2 to 3 cups
Ghee : 2 Table spoons
Water :  4 Cups.
Cashew nuts : 2 Table spoons. (cut it into small pieces).

Method :

1. Take a big bowl or pan. Put custard powder and sugar in it.

 2. Add water and mix it nicely until everything dissolve in water completely.

3. Keep the pan on the fire and stir it slowly on medium and low flame.
4. Stir it till it leaves the side of the pan.
5. Add ghee and stir for another 5 to 10 minutes.
6. Apply ghee on a plate.
7.Add cut nuts and then mix it well.
8. Put this mixture in the ghee applied plate and spread it around.
9. Cut it according to your wish when it turns cool.
Note : Adding more ghee is optional. It does not take much ghee. Adding more sugar (3 cups) helps to get the good shape. You can use any flavour of custard powder. Did not use any cardamom or any other spice here. The Halva is soft . It does not turn hard or chewy.
Time : 20 minutes
20 to 25 pieces of Halva.
