We always make this Godhuma Rava Halwa as an offering to Lord Satyanarayana (Another form of Lord Vishnu). We perform this puja once/twice every year. I never had the opportunity to take a picture so far, as we perform the puja in the evening and the halwa is distributed to the attendees after the puja and is usually over by the end of the evening. But a few weeks back (Vaikunta Ekadasi), we had a huge gathering for the puja and surprisingly there was a little halwa left after the gathering. So I took the pictures the following day. :)
This is a popular halwa at home with the kids and the adults as well. Usually a little more ghee is added but I prefer that the ghee content be kept to a reasonable amount. The usual ratio of Rava:Ghee:Sugar is 1:1:1.
This is for Day 6 of BM 12.
Godhuma Rava / Wheat Rava 1 cup (fine variety)
Milk 2 1/2 cups
Sugar 1 cup
Ghee 1/2 cup
Garnish with fried nuts and sliced /chopped banana
Method Of Preparation -
In a heated non-stick kadai/wok, add a teaspoon of ghee and roast the Wheat Rava until it gives out a nice aroma (about 3-5 min). [Roasting is optional but I prefer roasting it.]
Pour the milk and 3-4 Tbsp of ghee and mix well so there are no lumps. Cover with a lid and reduce the heat to low-medium.
After about 10-12 min check to see if the grain is cooked through. Now is the time to add in the sugar. Make sure sugar is added after the rava is cooked.
Mix well until the halwa comes together as a single mass.
Keep adding the remaining ghee as needed. Once there is glossy finish to the halwa and it doesn't stick to the sides, remove from fire, garnish with fried nuts and banana.
Since I offered this as naivedyam, we enjoyed it after offering it to God!!
