49 BISCUIT HALWA

Biscuit Halwa


Wondering what to do with leftover or unused packets of biscuits, then try this halwa. My son's get a variety of packets in store to try out and later after having a piece leave out the rest. This sweet would definitely be a solution to make use of the reamining ones and serve as a delicious treat/desert.
Recipe with photo sent in by my aunt Gomathi.

Biscuit - 200 gms( have used Marie biscuits)
Milk - 1 cup
Sugar - 1 cup
Saffron - few strands
Ghee - 1 tbsp
( optional use can add cardamom powder, fried cashew or almonds)


Soak biscuits in milk and sugar for 10 - 15 mts. It will completely dissolve in it, so there is no need to mash or powder.


Heat ghee in a non stick pan and add this mixture and keep stirring until it is thicken enough as halwa. Will not take more than 10 - 15 minutes. Add saffron and if needed a pinch of cardamom powder. Can use add some fried cashewnuts or almonds if needed and enjoy your delicious biscuit halwa.
