happy birthday advay,,,i know someday when u will be old enough to read u will sure read my posts..
posta halwa is one of my favourite ,...another nameof posta is poppeye seeds...i amnot sure whether my spelling is correct or not,...whenever i used to go home during my vacations,,,this recipe was on the toplist of the list of recipes which my mother used to prepare for me,,,.i remember she used to pack tiffins for train too,,,and now also ,,,whenever i leave for sinagpore...she packs this halwa...for me,,,i guess somethings with time never change...just like mothers love....,...this recipe is my mothers ,..when she had come down to singapore i watched her preparing....before going she made dish full of halwa which lasted quiet long....today is special day of our life so i thought why not prepare this halwa and share this recipe with everyone....for advays birthday dinner...ihad started preparation from yesterday itself,,remember my sleepy post...well i had soaked the poppeye seeds yesterday itself,..to get smooth paste....,..
so here comes the recipe
two cup posta dana
dryfruits half cup mixture of almonds,cashewnuts and raisins..
sugar depending on ur taste
soak postadana with dryfruits one night before
grind the soaked postadana with dryfruits
heat two tablespoon ghee in wok...( if u are using aluminium kadai u will need more ghee,its convenient tomake in non stick wok as the halwa is cooked quiet fast and doesnt sticktothe vessel and good for health cause less ghee)
once the ghee starts melting add the posta paste and keepfrying
add sugar ,..and fry further
once you see colour change to brown and consistency changing to viscous
turn off the burner
enjoy hot or cold...
