Number of serving: 3
3 cups Dried Apricot, Stuffed Loose

21/2 cups of Sugar

1/2 Cup Badam

6-8 pods of Cardamom

1/2 cup Ghee/Clarified Butter

Pinch of Pachai Karpooram or Cinnamomum Camphora or Edible Camphor


  • Soak Apricots in Water, Water level should be to just immerse them. Leave it for 24 hours.
  • By this time, the apricots would have absorbed all the water and be very soggy. Grind it to a paste with whatever water remaining the bowl in which it was soaked. Keep aside.
  • Take sugar in a heavy-bottom pan and add water just to immerse the sugar, Let it boil and syrup reach single-thread consistency or otherwise "kambhi paagu".
  • When you touch the sugar syrup and stretch it between your thumb and index finger you should get a single thread of Sugar syrup.
  • In this mean time, Roast the almonds in Ghee and break it coarsely. Once the sugar syrup reaches this consistency, Mix the Grind apricot paste to the syrup and mix well.
  • Now Comes the little effort part, STIRRING!!!!. Keep the Flame Low, Let the Halwa get a bit thick, Add Ghee little by Little and Keep Stirring, Just Keep Stirring, Just Keep Stirring.
  • Add the Pachai Karpooram/Edible Camphor and Broken Almonds and Mix Well.
  • Once the Ghee starts separating and the halwa doesnt stick to the sides of the pan, put off the flame and transfer it to Clean Plate.
