I am extremely excited and happy with the turnaround of event Bookmarked Recipes - Every Tuesday event that took place yesterday in my blog and will take place every Tuesday from here on. We had 14 bookmarked recipes that got to execution finally :)
So, guys, dig into your bookmarked recipes and try to post one of them on Tuesday to take part. Check out the rules here.
Now, onto today's recipe. This is a halwa (pudding) made commonly in Udaipur region of Rajasthan. Honestly, I just heard about it, but never tasted or saw this before. So, looked up for this on net and got this recipe from Tarla Dalal. We enjoyed it big time, so go ahead and enjoy it virtually and try to make it as well. You won't regret :)
Makai Jajaria मकई जजरिया - Makai Ka हलवा - मकई का हलवा (Corn Pudding)
Corn - 1.75 cups (or 1 tin of corn or if you are using fresh, use kernels from 2 cobs)
Milk - 1 cup
Water - 1/2 cup
Sugar - 1/2 cup
Green Cardamom (elaichi) powder - 1/4 tsp
Ghee (Clarified Butter) - 2 tbsp
Pistachios - Sliced or chopped for garnishing
- Heat the ghee in a non stick pan, add the grated corn and cook over a slow flame for 10 to 12 minutes while stirring continuously till the mixture turns light brown in colour.
- Add the milk and water and simmer till the liquid has evaporated, stirring occasionally.
- Add the sugar and cardamom powder, mix well and cook till the sugar has dissolved.
Serve it as a wonderful dessert after any lunch or dinner. Traditional this is served hot on corn leaves, garnished with the sliced pistachios. But, as I didn't have them, we served them in regular dessert bowls :)
