Coconut Custard Halwa
Craving for some sweet that can be had hot or cold and also which can be prepared in less than 15 minutes, then do try out this simple halwa.
Here goes the recipe
Custard powder - 5 - 6 tbsp( Preferably Strawberry flavor)
Coconut - 2 cups grated or a can of coconut milk
Sugar - 3/4 cup
Ghee/clarified butter - 1 tbsp
Optional - mixed nuts, chopped dry fruits(tuti fruity)
If using grated coconut, then grind it with 3 cups of hot water to a fine paste and extract thick milk.
I used a can of coconut milk and diluted with a cup of water. To it add sugar and custard powder. Mixed well to avoid any lumps.
Heat a pan and pour the mix and allow it to come up to a boil, reduce flame and cook till it is thickened to halwa consistency( for around 5 minutes). Add ghee and mix. Add chopped nuts and or dry fruits(tuti fruity) and mix well. Pour and spread on an ungreased sheet/plate and cool. Cut into required shape or pour in decorative/serving bowl and cool and serve.
P.S:-I did not have strawberry flavored custard powder, so instead have used vanilla flavor.
