How to make Pista Halwa

Step 1

Take a mixing bowl and add enough warm water in it. Soak the pistachios in the water and leave them submerged for half an hour. Then carefully peel the skin of the nuts. Keep it aside until needed again.

Step 2

Then take a mixer jar and add milk and soaked pistachios in it. Grind both the ingredients to form a paste.

Step 3

Now in a deep bottomed pan, heat enough water on a medium flame. Then carefully add the sugar in the pan.

Step 4

Allow the mixture to come to a boil and thereafter decrease the flame. Then add the pistachios paste (see step-2) followed by adding edible food color ( green in color) to the mixture. Mix continuously to prevent any clumps.

Step 5

Once the mixture accumulates in the center, add ghee to it and mix again. Transfer the halwa in a serving dish and top it up with silver vark.
