  • When all the milk is added, cook it on a low-medium flame for 10-12 minutes or until the bread is mashed and soft. Give a stir occasionally.
  • Once the milk is almost completely absorbed, add brown sugar and cardamom. Mix well. After adding sugar, the mixture will release a little liquid but will thicken with time. Cook it further until all the milk is absorbed. Keep stirring in between and add the remaining ghee slowly.
  • When the halwa forms a whole mass and doesn't stick to the pan, add the fried cashews & raisins and switch off the flame.
  • Transfer to a dish and serve immediately.
