1/2 Cup – Sugar
1 3/4 Cups – Water
2 tbsp – Ghee
1/2 tsp – Fresh Crushed Cardamom

In a pan heat ghee roast until golden brown cashews and raisins, take care not to burn raisins, keep aside.In the same add semolina and roast in low to medium flame until aromatic and brown, keep stirring while roasting so semolina doesn’t get burnt.
Once it’s hot if you let it rest even for 30 seconds semoline will get burn.
Meanwhile in a small pan or pot bring water to boil.
Add water, sugar to semolina and mix together, keep stirring until sugar dissolves and water is absorbed fully and rava gets cooked.
Now add crushed cardamom powder, raisins, cashews and mix well, cook for 1-2 minutes or until halwa becomes completely dry. Turn off the flame
