Singoda Halwa (Gluten Free)

Happy Navratri to all my readers who are celebrating.  Today is the 3rd day of Navratri.  What all have you made this Navratri for feasting along with fasting.  Are you all observing the complete 9 days, I am unable to do it so I am only doing the first and the last one as we are allowed to do in pairs.  This Navratri, I am bringing Singoda Halwa, a dessert made out of the chestnut flour that is allowed to eat during the fasting period.


I made Sabudana Khichdi on the first day and today I was thinking there should be a dessert and I was actually craving something sweet.  I am not even fasting and wasn’t in a mood to cook but then decided to make Singoda Halwa.

Every household has different items they eat.  We use to go this Santoshi Maata Mandir back in India and follow whatever we ate their for fasting.  In our household, we eat lauki, potatoes, spinach, pethaa (pumpkin).  What do you all eat during Navratri?

 

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup singoda flour (chestnut flour)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 2-3 tbsp ghee (clarified butter)
  • 8-10 slivered almonds (garnishing)

Directions:

In a kadhai or a heavy bottom pot, add the ghee.  Once slightly heated add the flour and roast it on slow to medium heat.  Keep stirring so it doesn’t get burnt.

In another sauce pan, add a cup of water along with sugar and place it on the gas.  Stir until the sugar is completely dissolved.  Turn the gas off.

Once the flour is roasted, add the simple syrup to it.  Stir it continuously so no lumps are formed.  Keep stirring until it all comes together off the pan.   Once its comes off the pan, your halwa is ready to be served.

Garnish it with slivered almonds and serve hot.
