  • Select sauté on the instant pot and adjust to normal. Further add in ghee to the pot.
  • When the ghee is hot, add in singhare atta, and stir well.
  • Continue stirring until the color changes and it get fragrant. This should take about 4 to 5 minutes.
  • Meanwhile bring 1 and 1/2 cup water and ½ cup milk to a boil in a small bowl for 3 minutes in a microwave. Additionally, you can even do this on a stove top.
  • When the color of the flour changes in the pot, add in the warm milk + water. Then, add in slivered almonds, ground cardamom (optional). Stir well.
  • Next add in sugar and keep stirring until the sugar dissolves and the water dries out completely. Select cancel.
  • Finally, transfer in a serving bowl and garnish with additional nuts. Serve warm.


  • This can also be made on the stove top since it doesn’t require pressure. However, I literally use my instant pot for cooking everything. So, I decided to try this recipe out using sauté mode.
  • The key to making this halwa is to add boiling milk and water. Also it needs to be stirred continually in order to prevent it from getting lumpy.
  • This halwa tastes best when it is fresh.
