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.

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.

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.

Soft Milk Dumplings Soaked in Sugar Syrup (Gulab Jamun)
Add to favourites

This particular recipe is from Mrs. Renuka Gandhi in Mumbai, India. The first time I tasted them, I couldn't believe they were homemade. Homemade gulab jamuns are usually hard on the inside. But these are just perfect.

Since she usually makes gulab jamuns in large quantities, Mrs. Gandhi had to revise her recipe a few times before she got the proportions right for a smaller number. And she did it all for KhaanaWaana so let's thank her! This recipe serves 15-16.
