Makki Ka Halwa Recipe | Makki ke Atta ka Halwa Banane ki Vidhi by Parshotam Kaur [WINTER SWEETS INDIAN]

Somewhere some people meet you unexpectedly and share their life's experiences. Met Parshotam Kaur aunty online in Healthy Recipes by Homemakers and she has become an integral part of my life's journey. This unique makki ke atta ka halwa recipe belongs to her. Traditionally, makki ka halwa is a Rajasthani halwa recipe but I have never tasted it. I have grown up relishing makki di roti and sarson ka saag and when I turned into a baker, I did try to bake cookies and cakes with cornmeal.

But for this moment, let's talk about makki ka halwa by dear aunty ji. I will be sharing more of her baking, fusion and Punjabi recipes.

So keep watching this space for more.

Cornmeal Benefits

Cornmeal is rich in a range of minerals and vitamins. This includes iron, B6, selenium, manganese, magnesium, and thiamine. The gluten-free flour is ideal for those with allergy from wheat and gluten.

Also, known as maize in the US, cornmeal is an important cereal loaded with phytonutrients, carotenoids, phytosterols, beta-carotene, and linolenic acid.

Mazie comprises anthocyanins, which have plenty of health benefits, making it a potential aid in fighting several diseases. Research finds that cornmeal has potential lipid-lowering, anti-carcinogenic, anti-diabetic, anti-atherogenic, antimicrobial, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory effects.

Fun fact: Roasted maize kernels have been in use as a substitute to coffee beans!

However, some people with histamine intolerance develop an allergy to corn along with soy and many other ingredients.

1 cup makki ka aata (cornmeal)

Can we use the soaked water for millets? Does millet need to be soaked?

Do millets contain anti-nutrients? Yes, they do. In fact, all whole grains, including oats, contain phytates, which bind to minerals and make their absorption difficult for the body.  Soaking is the first step toward reducing anti-nutrients from millets. Soak for at least 6-8 hours to make digestion easier. Discard the soaked water and then proceed to the next step of cooking.
