    1. Hi asha,
      It may be the nature of the corn flour or u must have cooked in bit high flame in the last stage as so the raw smell retained in it.

  38. Hi Jeyashri, I am your big fan of peas masala. This deepavali i want to do this cornflour halwa. How many days we can store this halwa

    1. This will stay good for 4-5 days in the refrigerator but the texture will not be the same if you keep it inside the refrigerator. So better to make it and consume within 2 days.
