Learn how to make Karachi Halwa| corn flour halwa| bombay halwa using Karupatti| palm jaggery, recipe with full video and step by step pictures. Diwali is around the corner and this time i have planned to post few recipes using different varieties of sugar. Palm jaggery | Karupatti is widely used in Tamilnadu, and it is much healthier than refined white sugar. For friends living in Singapore, you can use Gula melaka also instead of Karupatti. Gula melaka is the same as Nolen gur used in Bengali cuisine. I have posted Corn flour halwa few year back, and the same recipe i used for this, just replaced sugar with karupatti. Generally we add food colour to the cornflour halwa, but since we use karupatti| palm jaggery, it gives a natural color. So if you are looking for sweets without white sugar, try out this dry fruits halwa. For this Karachi halwa with Karupatti, i have added more nuts to make it taste like a dry fruits halwa.
