Maida Halwa ~ Another exciting Halwa in Making!

You would think I have a big line of testers waiting to eat off my line of Halwas? Well you can’t get any more wrong that! The Doodhi halwa was promptly stored in fridge to be served hot when hubby dear, sadly nodded ok. When I heated it up, I couldn’t resist a small piece, well it was extremely tasty. But not good when you are calorie conscious! Athamma was asking if I was done with all my Halwa posts, I said I still have few more posts to go. She said if I wasn’t so keen on Halwas, she had soaked rice for making Jhangiri. I told her that I had already posted it a year back. She was surprised, but reluctantly agreed not to make them. When Hubby dear overheard that I still have few more to go, he strongly refused to be the tester, as his hours of spending off those calories are taking toll on him. Well I was sure he didn’t have a problem with the Chocolate Halwa, as Konda promptly finished off half!

So all this discussion made me decide that I may try just one or two more of the Halwas. I could convince my twins to eat, but they are so unpredictable. Sometimes they like, some they wont even touch. By the way, when I was playing with Peddu, this morning, I asked him to tell me a story. He came close to my ear, with his hands folded as if he was going to whisper in my ears. But he said loud enough to be heard next door, “Chinna Chinna Paappa”. Now I don’t know what story it is, but he was highly impressed with himself. And very happy too. So we had to clap!

This version of Halwa, tastes very much like the Wheat Halwa. And involves the same amount of stirring but less work when compared with Godumai Halwa.

I am sure these simple veggie sandwiches would serve good too!

Maida – 50 gms
Sugar – 100 gms
