I am still on cloud nine, yet to get over from the award hangover, this was time to celebrate my maiden award. I might sound like a maiden academy award winner, LOL, still...it makes me happy enough. I made this in 15 mts, so easy, just make it and gulp it down, so silky and slippery. But i would prefer the wheat Halwa over this because, it has more body and texture than this. This halwa, though good enough was like a step sister who was not as beautiful as Cinderella. Anyways, comes in handy for instant sweet cravings. Hope you enjoy. The one mistake was the garnishing. I didn't add any nuts to the halwa itself, but messed up with shaved almonds. Appa thought it was coconut scrapings till he tasted it, next time, keep it simple and keep it the right way, happy-bowl.
