Bombay Halwa/ Karachi Halwa

To celebrate the happiness I am sharing sweet dish with you. Bombay Halwa / Karachi Halwa I am sure everyone knows this sweet and it is very easy to prepare. Its taste reminds my childhood days. My grand father used to bring this from Bombay (Mumbai). Shiny boxes containing different colors of Halwa!!!! that was great days I am really missing those days.

One more thing I would like to share with you. My friend Najla she prepared date cake by following my recipe (but instead of caramel topping she made chocolate frosting) and sent this photo to me I felt so happy when she told it came out well and her neighbors appreciated her.
