Custard Fudge/ Karachi Halwa with Custard Powder/ Diwali Sweet Recipe

Custard Fudge/
Karachi Halwa with Custard Powder/
Diwali Sweet Recipe
Hi Friends,
I love making ladoo and barfis, but i hardly try my hands on these sweet delicacies as i am always afraid of making sugar syrup of different thread consistency. So on Diwali i kept on looking for easy recipes in which sugar syrup is not required. And i ended up with this custard powder karachi halwa recipe. 
This is the most easy recipe to make as you don't need so much perfection to know the exact consistency or check the thread formation. But it will be hectic to make it as you have to do continuous stirring for almost 15-20 minute. Which would be a good exercise for your hands. One more plus point it that you can make this in advance and keep it ready to serve or pack in the boxes. I will recommend you to make it one or two days earlier and then serve or pack it. 


Vanilla Custard- 1 cup
Sugar - 2 cups
Water- 3 cups
Ghee- 1 tbsp
Chopped almonds or cashew nuts - 1 tbsp
Food color- 1 pinch (optional) i did not used it

Take all your ingredients

Grease & keep a medium thali/plate/cake pan ready

mix sugar water and custard powder in a bowl

now pour it in a large vessel and start heating it 

it will start boiling

within 5 minutes it will turn transparent

now add 1 tsp ghee

keep on stirring it

after every one minute of stirring pour 1 tsp ghee until it finishes

keep on stirring

after 15 minutes it will start leaving the sides

see its all bubbly 

now add chopped almonds

all added

and mixed well

pour it in grease plate/thali 

mark pieces after it cools down completely

cut in your desired shape

  1. You can use cashew nuts instead of almonds. I was having only this in hand.
  2. to make it more appealing you can add a pinch of orange color. 
  3. You can cut in your desired shape with a cookie cutter if making for kids party. 
Hope you will like it
