  1. Cover the broken wheat with water and soak for two hours.
  2. Soak almonds in warm water, and remove the skin.
  3. Soak the saffron strands in a little warm water.
  4. Grind well the soaked wheat with water, and filter through a mesh to extract the wheat milk.
  5. Grind it yet again with some more water and extract more milk.
  6. Repeat the process till all the wheat milk is extracted, and discard the solids.
  7. Add water, if necessary to make up four cups of wheat milk.
  8. Start cooking the wheat milk with sugar in a heavy bottomed pan.
  9. Keep stirring to avoid lumps.
  10. Once it starts boiling it will thicken very fast. So keep stirring.
  11. Add half of the ghee and keep cooking until the mixture becomes like a thick custard.
  12. Add the soaked saffron and blend well.
  13. Add the remaining ghee and cardamom powder and remove from heat when the halwa leaves the sides of the pan.
  14. Pour into a greased plate and decorate with almonds.
  15. The halwa will set like a custard when it cools down, and now you can cut them as desired.
  16. Store it in the fridge in the plate as it is, and relish piece by piece when ever you crave for it!
