Some Tips/ Suggestions:

  1. Traditional recipe calls for equal amount of ghee and flour ! I have reduced the amount of ghee for a healthier preparation. It is your wish if you want to add more ghee.
  2. You can also add some raisins or some other nuts and fruits in this halwa preparation.
  3. You can increase or decrease the amount of sugar as per taste.
  4. I have used light brown organic sugar in this halwa preparation. The color of your halwa may be a little different if you are using white sugar.
