Take a bowl and mix tapkir, sugar, water, vanilla essence and food colour properly so that there are no lumps in it. 

Take a dish, grease it with ghee and keep it ready.

Take a kadai(wok) and heat ghee. 

Pour the mixture into ghee and stir it continuously to avoid lumps. Stir it till ghee leaves the sides and it becomes shiny and transparent. It shows that your halwa is ready.

Pour halwa in greased dish and spread it evenly. 

Garnish it with almonds, pistachios and elaichi powder and let it cool. Let it set for 1 to 1 1/2 hour before cutting into pieces. 

Put it in refrigerator to make it chilled and serve it.

Note : Once you pour the mixture into the kadai make sure you stir it continuously to avoid lumps. It is a quick recipe - you can prepare it in just 8-10 minutes, just take care of little things.
