Egg Halwa

Recipe by  

"A delicious dessert for cold winter nights. You can add vanilla if you feel it tastes too eggy. It's a little heavy, so even a small portion is enough to satisfy your sweet tooth."

Directions

  1. Crush the cardamom pods with the side of a knife. Combine the cardamom, milk, egg, sugar, shortening, semolina, and dry milk powder in a heavy bottom saucepan. Whisk well to combine, then cook on low heat, stirring occasionally until the eggs thicken. Continue cooking, stirring constantly, until the mixture browns, and the shortening begins to separate, about an hour. Remove cardamom pods and serve hot.

This tasted very authentic; we call this "anday ka halwa" and my dad makes it when we have guests over. However I think all egg halwa recipes are way too heavy and greasy so i gave it 4 stars.
