Poppy seeds and Cashewnuts Halwa!

The dessert was long time pending. Even this recipe is from south karnataka, India. It is rich and calorie-packed with cashews and flavourful poppy seeds,coconut milk and clarified butter/Ghee. You can use oil to make it less- fat but adding ghee gives halwa wonderful taste.

I will be offline for next one week as me and him going on vacation to Glaciers and will miss all your interesting recipes. See you soon..
Ingredients:
1/2 cup Cashewnuts 
1/2 cup Poppy seeds(soak for 15-20 mins)
1 cup Coconut milk
1 cup Sugar
1 cup Milk
1 tsp Cardamom powder
1/4 cup Ghee(clarified butter)
 
Grind cashwenuts,soaked poppy seeds with the coconut milk to fine paste.
Heat a heavy saucepan, add milk, sugar and ground paste.
Keep adding ghee in regular intervals and stirring continuously.
Add cardamom powder, mix well. when the mixture becomes thick and you can see ghee on the surface. remove from heat.
Transfer to serve bowl and garnish with safforn strings and cashewnuts.
Sending off to the event"Sizzling Summer Contest" hosted by SpicyTatsy.
