INDIAN  HALWA

100 grams cornstarch1 tin coconut milk (available in Indian shops)2 tins water (above coconut tin)  1 cup sugar⅓ stick butter1 tsp salt1 tbls lemon juiceSaffron, cardamom & nutmeg powder as neededChopped almonds, pista etc

Soak a small fist-full of china grass (cut into small pieces) in hot water till dissolved.

Mix all of the above ingredients, except butter, preferably in a non-stick pot, and bring to a boil over high heat -- add butter.  Reduce heat and stir the mixture constantly till mixture thickens and pulls to the center of the pot (about 20-25 minutes). Check if done by pouring a little halwa onto a glass plate till you're able to lift the halwa off the plate.  Add lemon juice, stir and pour into plates.  Sprinkle with nuts and enjoy.  :P
