  1. **Roast Semolina:** Heat ghee in a pan over medium heat. Add semolina to the pan and roast it until it turns golden brown and aromatic, stirring continuously to prevent burning. This should take about 5-7 minutes.
  2. **Prepare Matcha Mixture:** In a separate bowl, mix matcha green tea powder with water until well combined and no lumps remain.
  3. **Cook Halwa:** Once the semolina is roasted, carefully pour the matcha mixture into the pan while stirring continuously to avoid lumps. Add sugar to the mixture and continue stirring.
  4. **Cook Until Thickened:** Cook the mixture until it thickens and the semolina absorbs the liquid, stirring occasionally. This should take about 5-7 minutes.
  5. **Garnish and Serve:** Once the halwa reaches the desired consistency and starts to leave the sides of the pan, remove it from heat. Garnish with chopped nuts if desired.
  6. **Serve:** Serve the Matcha Halwa warm as a delightful dessert or snack. It pairs well with a cup of hot tea or coffee.


  • Adjust the amount of matcha powder based on your preference for its flavor intensity.
  • You can garnish the halwa with chopped nuts like almonds, cashews, or pistachios for added texture and flavor.
  • Serve the halwa warm for the best taste and texture.
