This Recipe has been contributed by Khyati Shah

Halwasan is the traditional Indian sweet from Khambhat (Cambay) area of Gujarat. It is made from cracked wheat, edible gum, sugar and split milk.  It has a fudge like texture and is gooey. It is a healthy sweet dish.

Traditionally , Halwasan was made by soaking wheat, sun drying it and then grounding it coarsely.

But now a days we get the cracked wheat or dalia and  it gives the same result.

Many people also use semolina instead of dalia or the combination of cracked wheat and semolina.

The process involves:

souring of milk

Caramelising the sugar

Roasting the wheat with the Soured milk and drying the mixture.

Here is the step by step method of the traditional and nutritious halwasan.
