Weet Bix Cereal – 4pieces (15 grams each)
Palm Sugar – 1/2 cup
Almonds/Cashew/Pista – 1/3 cup
Cardamom Powder – ¼ tsp
Ghee – 4 tsp
Water – 1.5 cups
Saffron - Pinch
If you are using almonds, soak for 2 hours else this step can be ignored. Remove the skin from almonds.
Blend the nuts with saffron and less than ½ a cup of water. Blend to a nice paste.
Take a microwave safe bowl and brush it with ghee.
Crush the weetbix separately with hands.
Add a teaspoon on ghee on the weet bix and mix well.
Microwave for 30 seconds. Take out and mix well.
Microwave for another 30 seconds. By this time you would get a nice aroma. If you are not getting then take out , mix well and keep 30 seconds again. Do not keep beyond 1 ½ minutes.
Add the nuts-saffron mix, remaining water, palm sugar and cardamom with this weet bix. Mix well. The water gets absorbed fast but do not worry.
Add 1 tsp ghee on top of this and mix well.
Microwave for a total of 4 minutes. Take out every 2 minutes and mix well. Adjust the sugar taste, (if you want to do so) during these intervals.
After 4 minutes take out and add a teaspoon of ghee. The halwa would become thick by itself in 5 minutes time for the heat it has.
Ghee measurements given are the minimum. Do not reduce it. However you may wish to increase if you want to do so.
WeetBix comes with various flavor. Choose the plain one which has nothing but just wheat
