Custard Halwa

This halwa is so simple, just a few ingredients are needed for this recipe. Furthermore, I would like to share some of my suggestions for making the perfect custard halwa. Firstly, don’t forget to grease a plate with ghee. Then dissolves the custard powder and sugar with water in a heavy bottomed pan before transferring to the heat. Otherwise, the mixture may form lumps while heating. Another important thing which you have to do is keep on mixing until it gets thick.

Finally, this halwa doesn’t need that much ghee as well. So it is quite a healthy recipe and your kids also like this chewy texture very much. But don’t give too much of custard halwa to them because the custard powder may cause digestion problem to them. So I would stop them having it after 1 or 2 pieces.
