Recipe Notes

  1. If you want to store this halwa in a bigger quantity, after cooling, transfer it into an air tight container & refrigerate. It stays fresh for about 10 days. Use a clean & dry spoon to scoop it out everytime.
  2. If you like the flavor, you may add cinnamon powder to the halwa while adding cardamom.
