Habshi Halwa

This Indian sweet dish is named "Habshi" due to its dark appearance. It is made using milk, sugar and butter which makes it moist and juicy in appearance.


Full cream Milk: 1 Litre
Lemon juice: few drops
Vinegar: 2 tbsp
All purpose flour: 2 tbsp
Sugar: 1 cup
Ghee or Butter: 1/2 cup
Cardamom powder: 1 tsp
Cocoa powder or brown food color: a pinch
Almonds (flaked): 10-15
Pistachios (crushed):10-15


  1. Boil 1 Litre of full cream milk in a non stick pan, then add lemon juice and vinegar to it and let it boil on a low flame.
  2. As the milk starts to break, add sugar, cardamom powder and make a paste of flour in water and add that to the milk mixture. Then add ghee or butter and a pinch of cocoa powder or brown food color.
  3. Keep stirring on a low flame until the water dries completely and the mixture thickens. Add some flaked almond and pistachios and mix it well.
  4. Take habshi halwa in a plate, garnish it with some more almonds and pistachios and refrigerate it. Once its cool you can cut it into pieces and serve.
