Saffron Cabbage Halwa

How you ever prepared halwa with cabbage, but i did. Yes for the week's blogging marathon i chosed an incredible theme called desserts with veggies. After carrot kulfi, i landed towards one of the pungent smell vegetable Cabbage. Since i dont want to make halwa with carrots for this theme, i tried my hands in preparing this saffron cabbage halwa with full fat milk and ghee, trust me this halwa is just out of the world. I couldnt stop myself with a spoon and i finished half of the bowl i prepared and left the remaining to my betterhalf. If you want to make a different halwa, just give a try to this delicious cabbage halwa.

This halwa is prepared fully with ghee and whole milk, obviously its a rich halwa but personally i think to mask the odor of cabbage both ghee and whole milk plays an important role here. Dont feel guilty for adding ghee and whole milk. Also once a while its nothing harm to enjoy fatty sweets na..Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#34.

1/2cup Cabbage
1/4cup Ghee
2cups Whole milk
1/2cup Sugar (increased or decrease)
Few saffron strands
1/2tsp Cardamom powder
Chopped nuts

Take the ghee and shreded cabbage together in a vessel, saute in medium flame until the raw smell of cabbage goes on.

Add the milk and cook in high flame, stir continously.

Once the milk turns thick and comes half of the quantity, add in the sugar,saffron,ghee and cook in medium flame until the mixture turn thick.

Finally add the cardamom powder and cook in simmer.

Once the halwa gets off from the vessel, put off the stove.

Add the chopped nuts,give a stir.

Serve warm or cold.
