karachi bombay halwa /corn flour halwa recipe

karachi bombay halwa /corn flour halwa recipeBombay karachi halwa is a very attractive easy sweet to try this Diwali.This karachi bombay halwa has become a popular sweet not only because of its vibrant colour but the taste is also one of the genuine reasons. Whenever we use edible colours for food we will be little worried but once in a while in little amounts is not at all a matter I think. Most importantly adding colours becomes mandatory in some recipes without which that particular dish may become less interesting. If you are not interested in adding artificial colours then you can add natural colour re-placers like karachi bombay halwa /corn flour halwa recipebeetroot extract and even turmeric. I read somewhere that this halwa was once made by soaking the maida dough and the squeezed milk from the dough was used to make this halwa. This is the first time Iam making this halwa although I have tasted it many times in sweet-shops. This sweet should be stirred carefully without any lumps. I have added only cashew nuts here but you can add badam,pista or any seeds like melon seeds after roasting. I have used a thick bottomed aluminium kadai but you can use a non-stick kadai! it will be very easy.
