Bottle Gourd Confection (Doodhi Halwa)
Add to favourites

Indian comfort food at its best, this halwa recipe is both delicious and healthy, and can be refrigerated for up to 10 days. Using evaporated milk or milk which has been reduced to half by heating adds more flavour to the halwa. But you can use regular whole milk too.

Low-Cal Carrot Halwa (Gaajar ka Halwa)
Add to favourites

While traditional gaajar halwa can take anywhere between 2-21/2 hours to prepare, this recipe takes only 15-20 minutes! And it's healthy too. The best part is when you take a bite, you won't be able to tell the difference.

  • Preparation time:  5m
  • Cooking time:  12m

This is a recipe from my mom’s friend Sharmishta who lives in Buffalo (NY). It's not exactly like milk cake in texture, but very close to it in look and flavour. The best part is it requires very few basic ingredients that are always at hand - milk powder, sugar, cream and ghee.

Ras Madhur (Quick 'n Easy Kalakand)
Add to favourites

  • Mithai
  • With Video:  No
  • Difficulty: 

If you're fond of Kalakand, you'll love my mom's take on this traditional dessert that's easy to make, tastes delicious and is healthy too because it's made from cottage cheese. Called Ras Madhur - a moniker given by a group of my friends who polished off an entire batch one day - this modern mithai is ready in 15 minutes flat! While I prefer to use homemade cottage cheese prepared from full cream milk - primarily because it's not salty - you can use the store-bought version too, although I would suggest you hunt for an unsalted variety.

Semolina and Wheat Flour Halwa (Sooji aur Aate ka Halwa)
Add to favourites

This halwa or sheera is a common childhood favourite. Remember, well-roasted flour adds to the flavour of this halwa. Don't be afraid to brown it because after you add water, the colour will lighten.
