AGAR AGAR (CHINA GRASS) HALWA

AGAR AGAR HALWA

Agar Agar is very good for health. This is a very light dessert and can be prepared easily and quickly and there is no tension of the halwa consistency not being proper for it to be cut into pieces like the traditional Halwa

(Refer to the recipe of Agar Agar Jelly in my blog to know how good agar agar is for your health)
Ingredients
China Grass – 1 cup
Sugar – 1 cup
Water – 3 cups
Cardamom Powder – 1 tsp
Ghee – for greasing the plate or containers
Chopped Pista, Cashews and Almond slivers for decoration.

Method
In a saucepan, boil 3 cups of Water, Wash the China grass in a colander to remove traces of preservatives. Add this to the boiling water, wait till it melts completely. At this point add the sugar and the cardamom powder and keep stirring until the sugar dissolves. Once it dissolves run a test

Test : Take some cold water in a small cup and add a teaspoon of the boiling agar agar syrup to it. If it stands means its done). Switch off the flame.

Take a deep plate and grease it with ghee, Pour the concoction. Once it is completely poures garnish with the dryfruits. Allow it to come to room temperature. Cool in the refrigerator (DO NOT PLACE IN DEEP FREEZER) for about an hour and cut it into squares or diamonds after it becomes solid and enjoy.

Serving Instructions
Pour the mixture into small ice cream cups or glass bowls leave it in the vessel itself.

Place the cups/bowls in the refrigerator, in about an hour, you can eat the halwa from the cups directly.
