Corn Flour Halwa Recipe – Microwave ten-minute Halwa

Corn Flour Halwa – Microwave ten-minute Halwa

Hi Friends,

Corn Flour Halwa – Halwa is an Indian dessert/sweet which would look like jellies 😉  So many Halwa varieties are available like Wheat halwa, Kaju Halwa, Ashoka Halwa,Corn-flour Halwa etc.. Most halwa recipes would require constant stirring or soaking/grinding and would be time consuming. Out of all the varieties, I feel that Corn-flour Halwa is the easiest to prepare.

We had a family get-together suddenly planned on a weekday and I didn’t have much to spend on dessert, although I wanted to prepare a special one 😐 Then, I remembered this easy halwa recipe that I had tasted at my friend’s home. I always love to make recipes that are just a few “Dings” (Microwave Language !!) away 😋 Needless to say that my corn-flour Halwa was a big hit that day(Feeling Proud and Relieved).

Here comes the simple recipe for Halwa prepared in microwave. You don’t need to struggle much for reaching a perfect Halwa-consistency in this method and believe me, you can make pakka slices very easily. A smarter way to make delicious halwa is now just a button away, uh?? 😉

Let’s see how easy is that recipe..

Preparation time – 5 mins

Cooking time – 12 mins

Slices – average 20


Corn flour (starch) – 1/2 cup

Sugar – 1 & 1/2 cups

Water – 2 cups

Food color (as you prefer) – a small tinge (I have used orange)

Cardamom – 1/4 tsp powdered

Fried Cashews – 8 -10 broken into pieces

Ghee – 2 tbsp

Preparation Method:

  1. Mix sugar, corn starch, water & food color in a microwave-safe bowl without any lumps.


  1. Grease a tray with butter or ghee & keep it ready.

  2. Microwave it for 6 minutes stirring well once after 4 minutes. You can see the Halwa binding along.


  1. Give a nice whisk and microwave it again for 6 minutes stirring once in every minute (You can also stir between every 2 minutes if you can give a nice whisk).

  2. You now hear the final “Ding” in the microwave and the halwa is ready. Add ghee, cardamom (Elaichi ) & (Preferably, Ghee-roasted) cashews to the halwa.


  1. Stir well and pour it into the greased plate quickly as the Halwa will start to solidify soon.
