Then add the cornflour mixture, keep stirring in low flame. Stir continuously to avoid lumps while adding. It will first start to form glossy here and there.Then it will start to thicken and form glossy texture here and there. Keep on stirring on medium flame until you see the halwa texture.Once it is thick, add ghee, fried cashews and cardamom powder.
