Heat a heavy bottomed pan and add 1/2 tbsp ghee. When ghee melts, add the cracked wheat and roast until the content heats up and good aroma comes. Transfer it to another container.
Heat milk and water in the heavy bottomed pan and when the content heats up, add the roasted cracked wheat.
Allow it to cook partially closed. Stir occasionally. Cook until the wheat is tender. If all the moisture is absorbed and still the wheat is not cooked, pour half a cup water and allow it to cook until the wheat is tender.
When the wheat is fully cooked, add the sugar and cardamom. The content will loosen and again start thickening. When most of the moisture is absorbed, add the remaining ghee. Stir well until even distribution. Let the halwa be a little loose as the sweet tends to thicken after some time.
