Jhat-pat halwa can be prepared within half an hour because it is made with common ingredients, and requires very little prior preparation and planning. The creamy taste of milk acts as a suitable base, which highlights the shades of saffron and cardamom. The topping of pistachios and almonds gives it a rich feel.
