Very easy to make, this Halwa is similar to Bombay Halwa however in this one we use a rolling pin.

  • 1cup sugar
  • ¼ cup ghee / clarified butter
  • ¼ cup corn flour
  • ¼ of orange food colour
  • ¼ tsp cardamom / elachi (powdered)
  • 1 tbsp almonds/badam (chopped)
  • 1 tbsp pistachios (chopped)


  1. firstly, in a large Kadai take 1½ cup milk, 1 cup sugar, ¼ cup cornflour and ¼ cup ghee.
  2. make sure to stir continuously keeping the flame low without forming any lumps.
  3. after 5 minutes, the mixture starts to thicken and turns into a paste consistency.
  4. now add ¼ tsp of orange food colour and 1 tsp ghee.
  5. mix well keeping the flame on medium.
  6. further, add ¼ tsp cardamom powder and mix well.
  7. mix till the mixture turns glossy. add a tsp of more ghee if it’s not turning glossy.
  8. transfer a ladleful of ice halwa mixture onto butter paper.
  9. place another sheet of greased butter paper over it and spread the mixture gently with your hand.
  10. also, use a rolling pin spread thin/thick thickness as desired.
  11. peel off the butter paper and sprinkle a few chopped almonds and pistachios.
  12. allow the mixture to cool for 2 hours or refrigerate for 15 minutes.
  13. now cut the ice halwa into squares (along with the sheet) once set completely.
