Fresh Orange Halwa

I had a packet of oranges sitting in my refrigerator sadly,the reason being they were a bit sour.I planned to sort this out soon.So,my first thought was to make juice but as it was  sour,but I knew kids wouldn't favor this..then I thought about this quick and easy halwa with fresh fruit.I had earlier prepared the Fruit halwa(apple -banana) and grabbed up all courage to try these.As it was a first attempt I tried initially with 6 oranges and they vanished in no time then gave a second try with the rest of the packet.I gladly state that there were no left overs after an hour:-)Unlike other halwas,this is rather very easy, simple & takes very less effort.The best way to increase your vit C intake too:-)



Ingredients
orange juice 1 1/2 cup(6 oranges)
corn flour 4 tbsp
sugar 3 tbsp (adjust as per the sweetness of oranges)
ghee 1tbsp
water 2tbsp


Method
-Wash and cut the oranges in halves and squeeze the juice.Strain the juice,keep aside.
-Heat ghee in a pan ,pour the strained juice in it on medium heat .Add the sugar and keep stirring.
-Let it come to boil,mix the corn flour with water and add it to the boiling juice.
-Keep stirring to thicken and till it starts to leave the sides of the pan.
-Grease a  small plate with little ghee and pour out the contents in it and spread it evenly with a spatula.
-Leave it in the refrigerator for 1/2 -1 hour.
-Cut into desired shapes and enjoy!!


Servings~ makes 8 diamond pieces

NOTES
* You can adjust the ratio if you would like to make more in quantity.
* Adjust the sweetness as per the sweetness of oranges.
* Don't leave the pan unattended,keep stirring till the end otherwise it will stick to the bottom of the pan.
* You can leave it at room temperature to cool too,if you desire it in a hurry then refrigeration is a good option.
