Makai jajaria

This is a very popular halwa eaten in and around the areas surrounding Udaipur. Here corn is extensively cultivated especially white corn while yellow or sweet corn is grown at a few places.
I prefer the taste of sweet corn in this recipe as compared to white corn but you can use either. This halwa is simple to prepare and superbly flavoured.

Preparation Time : 10 mins.
Cooking Time : 20 mins.

Serves 4.

2 nos. sweet corn cobs, grated
1 cup milk
½ cup sugar
¼ teaspoon cardamom (elaichi) powder
2 tablespoons ghee
For the garnish
4 corn leaves
4 pistachios, sliced
1. Heat the ghee in a non stick pan, add the grated corn and cook over a slow flame for 10 to 12 minutes while stirring continuously till the mixture turns light brown in colour.
2. Add the milk and 1 cup of water and simmer till the liquid has evaporated, stirring occasionally.
3. Add the sugar and cardamom powder, mix well and cook till the sugar has dissolved.
4. Serve hot on 4 corn leaves as shown in the picture no.104, garnished with the sliced pistachios.
