Roasted Rice powder-2 serving spoon
Coconut Milk -3 (coconut)
Soak the cleaned fenugreek for at least 4 hours ..Then wash properly ,pressure cook till done by adding enough water ..6 whistle is enough .. When the pressure settle down open the cooker and allow to cool.When cool , add small portions of cooked fenugreek in a blender and grind(not that well ) ..Keep a side …
Boil 2 cup of water and add jaggery into it..Allow to melt …When the jaggery completely dissolves in water turn off the gas and allow to cool ..When cool strain it …
Now grind mustard seeds,cumin seeds and turmeric together by adding small portion of water
Extract 6-7 cups of coconut milk from 3 coconut in medium consistency ..
Now take a deep bottomed kadai and add all the ingredients we kept aside ..That is ground fenugreek,mustard-cumin-turmeric mix,jaggery,2 serving spoon of roasted rice powder(use for idiyappm) and coconut milk ..Add one pinch of salt oo ..Mix all these well …
Now switch on the fire allow to boil stirring well all the time ..Its a bit tough job dear readers but the result is too good …!! so plz keep on stirring ….Stir until the oil clears out and the mix to attain a thick mass..Its safe to use a non stick kadai…It will take 45 minutes to 1 hour …In the final stages u can see the mix leaves from the side of the kadai..Take a small portion and press between ur fingers and form a ball ,if the ball is non sticky then ur halwa is ready …That time the colour will be brownish black…U want the consistency to be more tight then u can stir some more time ..When u feel it reached ur type ,take a plate and pour the halwa into it and level the surface and keep aside to cool..
When cool cut into desired shape and enjoy ur fenugreek halwa..
