Khas Khas Halwa / Poppy Seeds Halwa Recipe

Khas Khas Halwa Recipe
This Khas Khas Halwa recipe is from my athai.She asked me to try this halwa when she was here and I tried it today so that I can get her assistance as well, the halwa was so ruch and delicious, though the ghee oozing out is not shown in the halwa when you taste, it will be so good both the flavour and texture.Do try this unique halwa recipe for this Diwali 2016.

The texture of this halwa is slightily different from other goey halwa recipes.This is more like sheera in texture.Halwa Recipes are sure easy when it comes to first timers and beginners as its difficult to flop it with so much of ghee and also it does not involve any major consistency checks.

My Notes:

  • Once the ghee starts to ooze out add nutmeg powder, cook for 2mins then switch it off.
  • You can store this halwa in room temperature for about a week.Just heat it up before you serve to have it hot / warm, the ghee will also melt.
  • I did not add any nuts as she suggested, just garnished with roasted cucumber seeds.
  • She also said nutmeg powder is the best combo for this halwa.
  • Though the halwa was not goey lookwise it was moist and drenched in ghee, every spoon was sure a bliss.
