METHOD
  1. Please refer to the link above for homemade mawa. I have used mawa #3 for this recipe.
  2. Crumble mawa and combine all the ingredients listed under 'for the base' in a heavy bottomed pan.
  3. Start cooking this mixture on a medium-low heat.
  4. Cook for 15-20 minutes, stirring frequently. Soon the mixture will starts to come together like a dough and will thicken. It will begin to leave the sides of the pan.
  5. Remove from heat and allow it to cool. Take some mixture in your hands and make a tight fist. The mixture should feel dry and greasy and not sticky at all.
  6. Grease a tray and line it with wax paper. Spread the mawa mixture into the prepared tray/ pan. Even out the mixture with a spoon. Set it aside to chill.
  7. Moving on to the next step. Crush pistachios with a rolling pan and set it aside.
  8. Combine the first three ingredients listed under 'pista layer' in a heavy bottomed pan.
  9. Cook for 15-20 minutes, stirring frequently. Soon the mixture will starts to come together like a dough and will thicken. It will begin to leave the sides of the pan.
  10. Add crushed pistachios to the above cooked mixture and mix until well blended.
  11. Add edible food color and mix it well. I have used Wilton green color mist food color spray.
  12. Add this mix on top on the mawa layer.
  13. Spread it evenly. Cover with cling wrap and refrigerate it overnight.
  14. Cut it into pieces and enjoy!
  15. Store in airtight container and its good for a week.
