As a kid, the only Halwa I was aware of, were the colourful Halwas I saw in almost all bakeries in Kerala. One could find huge blocks of Halwa in various colours like Black, Orange, Yellow and Green. I somehow never really liked them. Few years back during our Kerala visit, my MIL bought some Milk Halwa from Indian Bakery near our place. On her insistence, I tasted a piece with much reluctance. To my surprise, I loved it and ended up having a couple more pieces. This Halwa was something different.
The other day while talking to my SIL who was in Kerala for a short trip, we happened to discuss about the Halwa. As luck would have it, she had a packet right in front of her. She listed out the ingredients. The only thing I had to do was to find the proportion. On searching the net, I came across a recipe from A tasty Challenge. The only change I made was to completely omit Sago. Also I halved the recipe as this was my first attempt. The best part was when J’s cousin dropped in unexpectedly. While serving the Halwa, I asked them to guess what it is. Pat came the reply “Milk Halwa”… Yippee !!!
