I tried this halwa in microwave and it came out very well!!
       I took this recipe from a magazine.I did some modifications and tried!! Very simple & easy to do:)Mine is a 700w Power output oven.Here I’ve mentioned the time it took.Based on ur model,Please vary the setting time.
Cooking time: 24 mins
Standing time: 2 mins

1 cup - 240ml
  • Green Peas or Dried Peas – 1 cup  ( soak if using dried peas for 8 hrs)
  • Water – 1/4 cup (add more if reqd.)
  • Milk – 11/4 cup
  • Sugar – 1cup
  • Milk powder – 2 tbsp
  • Ghee – 3tsp
  • Cashew nut & Dry grapes – To decorate


  • Take the Green Peas/Dried peas with water in a microwave vessel and close it .
  • MICRO- HIGH for 8 mins.Stir once in the middle.
  • Take the cooked peas out and let it cool down.
  • Grind the peas to make a paste using 1/4 cup of milk.
  • Dilute the milk powder(I used amulya) in little lukewarm milk so that there will be no lumps.
  • Now take the ground paste,dissolved milk powder & the remaining milk(1 cup) with sugar in a microwave vessel.
  • Stir it well.Make sure there are no lumps.(TIPS: if u find any lumps , just run this mixture in the mixie once or twice)
  • MICRO-HIGH for 12mins with lid open by stirring once in the middle.
After 12 mins it looks like this

  • Now take the thickened halwa out and make a dent in the middle.
  • Pour the ghee and add the pieces of cashew,dry grapes & cardamom powder into it.
  • MICRO-HIGH for 4 mins with lid open.
  • Remove the vessel and keep it as such for 2 mins(standing time).
  • Then stir it well.
