  • You can make this halwa in microwave too.
  • The sweet is perfect for this halwa so no need to add extra sugar.
  • Always ensure that the corn flour mixture will not have any lumps.
  • 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.

Thanks for the wonderful recipe… My husband loves halwa and we don't get it in shops in North India. I just tried it now. The entire batch is still cooling so I can cut into pieces. But I just tasted the scraped off leftovers from the kadai and wow!! Straightaway thought I should thank u for sharing this easy-peasy delicious halwa. Will post pics of it in my blog soon 🙂

hi jeyashri i tried this halwa, its cam nicely, but corn smell & taste was there after cooking also,why.

thanks dear

Reply
jeyashri suresh September 29, 2014 - 2:07 pm

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.
