Navratri is a time to go into complete festive mode and go on a gluttony-spree with all the delightfully tasty dishes surrounding you

Time: 25 minutes


  • 1 cup water chestnut flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon powdered green cardamom
  • 3 1/2 tablespoon ghee
  • 2 cup water
  • mixed dry fruits as required


  • Take a frying pan and heat 3 tablespoons ghee in it. Pour in singhare ka atta (water chetnut flour), cook it over
  • medium flame for around 5 minutes until it starts looking brown.
  • While the flour is being cooked, boil 2 cups of water in a small deep-bottomed pan. Once boiled, pour this
  • water into the pan containing the roasted flour and stir continuously to avoid lumps. Keep stirring and cook
  • until the mixture thickens to form a mass.
  • Now stir in cardamom powder and sugar. Mix really well to dissolve the sugar completely and get an even
  • flavour. When the halwa begins to leave the sides, add the rest of the oil to it and mix.
  • Your singhare ka halwa is ready to eat. Just garnish it with dry fruits of your choice and serve hot.
