Did you also react the same way as my hubby did…”Eh..what, Cabbage and Halwa????.OH…..No…”…:-)I guess you did but believe me cabbage in this form is yummy too.For the third day of Cabbage Marathon and cooking cabbage as a dessert fron Mallika Badrinath’s 100 Sweets book, truly makes me a daring cook!!!Here is the very simple recipe for a delicious halwa
Cabbage(cut into tiny bits) 2 cups
Sugar 1 cup
Grated fresh coconut 1/2 cup
Milk 1/4 cup
Sugar 3/4 cup
Ghee (Clarified butter) 3 tbsp
Cardamom powder 1/4 tsp
Cut the cabbage finely. Cook it till it is well cooked. I MICROWAVED it for 5 minutes with 1 tbsp of water.
Soak the cashew in the milk
Grind the cooked cabbage, coconut, cashew with milk till smooth.
Transfer this to a pan and add the sugar to it. Mix well
Cook it in low flame till it reaches the halwa consistency .Sprinkle the cardamom powder, mix well
Add the ghee and mix well
Switch off the fire.
Serve warm or cold
