Happy Independence Day - Tri Colored Halwa

60 years, yes it’s been 60 years since “that” midnight seasoned with aspirations of a million people. India and Indians have come a long way; gone are the days when India was totally depended on the western world for all that’s “cutting-edge”. Today, India is a proud member of the science & technology high table.

I would like to celebrate the Independence day with the Tri Color halwa :)

Ingredients:
Sooji : 2 cups
Sugar : 3 cups
Ghee : 1 cup
Water : 5 cups
Salt, a pinch
Green Color, few drops
Orange Color, few drops

Method:
  1. Heat ghee in a wide bottomed pan.
  2. Add Sooji, and fry on low, till it gives a very nice aroma.
  3. Meanwhile keep water for boiling.
  4. Add boiling water to sooji, while mixing well, to avoid lumps.
  5. Keep stirring on medium, till all the water has been absorbed.
  6. Add sugar and salt, and mix well.
  7. Stir till it forms halwa consistency.
  8. Divide the halwa into 3 portions.
  9. Mix orange color in one, and green in an other.
  10. Take a wide plate, and put the halwa mixed with green and even it.
  11. Then put the one without any color and even.
  12. Lastly put the orange one and flatten.
  13. Leave it cool.
  14. Cut into desired pieces and Serve.

And the Verdict:
I did not feel like serving as it is, becoz it resembled the national flag.
So I separated the layers and made them as two layered halwa after the photo session :)
Very appealing with different colors and tasty too!!!
