This morning I decided to try making a simple cream of wheat halwa. It looked easy enough. I got the recipe from Cooks.com and while I am sceptical about some of the recipes on there coughterribledonutscough, I am a firm believer in anything that requires cardamom can't suck that bad. That spice is lovely smelling.
The recipe is easy:
1/2 cup butter or margarine, 2 1/2 cups milk, 1 cup cream of wheat, 3/4 cup sugar, 1/4 cup raisins, 1/4 cup chopped almonds and 1/4 tsp cardamom.
Melt the butter in a medium sized pot or large frying pan on low heat and add the cream of wheat. Stir until well mixed and fry for 10 minutes or until golden brown with frequent stirring.
Add the milk, stir and let the mixture thicken. This will take about a minute. Add the rest of the sugar and stir until dissolved.
Add the rest of the ingredients, stir and cover the pot for about 10 minutes.
