Cornflour Halwa/Cornflour fudge/
Karachi Halwa/Bombay Halwa
I have a one more successful story for you. Story of one more dish i tried first time and succeed also. Since long i wanted to try this halwa but somehow circumstances didn't let me try my hands on it. So after so many delays i tried it and i was very close to perfection. Its very tiring process as you need to continuously stir it. But every effort worth it. I love this halwa. I often buy this halwa pieces from shop and munch them whole day. I will suggest you to keep it for at least one day and then consume it. As i made it at night after dinner it was over within few minutes. Somehow i managed to keep 2-3 pieces for later use. and when next day i ate them it was just like store bought Karachi halwa. I was so happy with the outcome. I will recommend you to try this. Now forget store bought karachi halwa and make your own.

- This halwa needs continuous stirring. Don't leave it unattended even for few seconds.
- For sugar and water mix just heat the water and sugar, no need to make any thread consistency.
- Keep adding water sugar mix and oil/ghee every few minutes or if you feel that halwa become dry.
- Halwa become shiny when its done.
- When it become shiny and glossy take a dry plate and drop half spoon halwa in it, cool it if it become bit hard or you can say in rolling consistency then its done.
- For an easy process what i did is- when i have to check the consistency by dropping it in a plate or i have to add sugar and oil, then i removed kadai from stove top, added the solution and then again put it on stove top. you can simply switch off the gas for this and light it again.
